Each student is responsible for obtaining their Student Visa. Once here, AEF will assist them in securing the Permesso di Soggiorno and other government documentation. Students are responsible for any/all relative fees for these outsources services and documents. AEF is not responsible for cancellations due to the failure to obtain a visa to enter Italy.
