Student Visa Information 

Students who are admitted to the St. John's Rome Graduate Programs receive letters of acceptance from the Queens campus. Upon registering for courses with an advisor in Rome, students receive letters of acceptance from the Rome Campus. Both acceptance letters must be submitted with the student visa application, which students must apply for by contacting their local Italian Embassy or Consulate.

Any student entering Italy with acceptance letters from St. John's must attend the semester to which admission is granted. Failure to do so will cause reporting to the local Italian immigration office.

Once in Italy, students are required to submit a Permit of Stay (Permesso di Soggiorno) application within eight working days from the start date of the student visa. Students who obtain a student visa but do not follow through with the permit processing, once in Rome, could face problems when asked to produce their passports for identification purposes, when entering or leaving Italy, and when applying for internships within Italy. Students will receive further instruction during the orientation program.

Italian nationals and European Union citizens do not need a visa or Permit of Stay. Students may work for 20 hours per week with their Italian student visa.
