  • Short term Visa/Tourist Visa (C-type Visa) for non-Eu citizens residing abroad: for degree programs requiring the admission test/TARM-Italian language test, an Italian Embassy/Consulate can issue a short term visa to allow you travel to Turin and take your test.

    The decision on the issue of a visa for study purposes is the exclusive jurisdiction of the Italian Diplomatic Representation. Documentation produced by higher education institutions referring to the single candidates for courses in the process of requesting visas is to be considered a support for the evaluation procedures of the Italian Diplomatic Representations, and does not automatically imply the issue of the visa.
