FAQ’s

1. What type of visa do I need to become a student in Armenia?

To become a student in the RA you can start by just having a tourist visa. Then you can apply for your preferred HEI. After getting admission, the specific Institution will apply to the consular section of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs for entry permission for you. Once getting the permission, the student can apply for a visa in the Embassy of Armenia in his/her respective country. The Embassy issues a single entry visa (the student pays for visa charges in the Embassy).

If there is no Armenian Embassy in the student’s country, he/she will be notified of the specific visa application procedure.

The student receives a Resident Card once in Armenia, free of charge.
