Applicants passing pre-enrollment will have to request a Study Visa to enter in Italy.  To obtain the issuance of the Visa to enter Italy for study purposes from the Embassy or Consulate in their countries, students having  received the letter of admission are requested to fill out the pre-enrollment application online through the Universitaly Portal at the following link:


When filling out the application, please indicate:
– the University of Rome Tor Vergata as your chosen University;
– the University Course you have been admitted to;
– the Embassy/Consulate where you will apply for an entry Visa to Italy.

At the end of the procedure, you will have to upload the required documents.

The pre-enrolment application will be verified by Tor Vergata University of Rome and forwarded to the Embassy or Consulate you have declared in your application.

In order to facilitate Visa issuing operations, we recommend that you request a statement of comparability of your High School/Bachelor Diploma from CIMEA by connecting directly to the following link:
