Visa:

Students who need to get visa must apply to a Turkish Consulate, generally the one nearest your place of residence.
You are recommended to apply for a visa as soon as you get the acceptance letter, which is issued by ESOGU. The process of getting a visa to Turkey generally varies depending on your country of residence.
Please check the relevant website for visa status: http://www.mfa.gov.tr/default.en.mfa
Foreigners who will study in Turkey should get the residence permit from the nearest local police station upon their arrival in Turkey regardless of the validity of their visa.
ESOGU International Relations Office assists all Incoming Erasmus Students during this procedure.


Residence Permit:

Erasmus students must apply for residence permit at the Department of Foreigners (Yabancilar Subesi) of the Eskisehir Security Office (Eskisehir Emniyet Mudurlugu) within one month upon their arrival to Turkey. Students are taken to the Department of Foreigners by our office.
