NEW ATTRACTIVE RULES FOR STUDENT VISA

euA visa directive approved this month mandates that in two years’ time, EU member states must allow non-EU students and researchers to work for a minimum of 15 hours a week while studying in an EU country and to stay for nine months post-graduation to look for work or set up a business.

The directive will also ensure that students do not need to obtain a second visa to move between countries in the EU.

This is making Cyprus and other EU countries more attractive for study and further employment!
