IAESTE representatives use their expertise to select the most qualified candidate for each offer, meaning one applicant is sent at a time to the employer. [February-April]

Visa Information

What is a Visa?

A visa is a document showing that a person is authorized to enter the territory for which it was issued, subject to permission of an immigration official at the time of actual entry. The authorization may be a document, but more commonly it is a stamp endorsed in the applicant's passport. Some countries do not require a visa in some situations, such as a result of reciprocal treaty arrangements. The country issuing the visa typically attaches various conditions of stay, such as the territory covered by the visa, dates of validity, period of stay, whether the visa is valid for more than one visit, etc. 

Embassy/Consulate

Please contact the local embassy/consulate of the host country to obtain visa.
