@Ernest, Can you confirm this for me? I have a visa that will expire Oct ending. I have not used the Visa. My school resumes Mid sept. A friend told me that I dont need to renew the Visa since I will have to apply for temporary permit when I get in in September. How reliable is this information?
is your visa for one year?
Re: Italian Student Visa-help! by rubenic(m): 8:39pm On Jul 30, 2012
newacca: @boss-man,superior1,rubenic and all,
Grazie a tutti. Thanks to you all.
Italian consulate in Lagos and its staff are not organized at all! They do not have any specific document requirements for study visa,and all they do is send gateman to you to tell you some of the documents you may "probably" need. Well,don't be bothered. If you are determined and know what you want,you will get there.
She got the visa on the 2nd attempt. First attempt,I went to consulate of Italy with her to enquire about the dox required for study visa,after all efforts made to reach 'em via d emails provided on their website proves to be futile. At the consulate in V/I the gateman requested for the offer letter,and took it inside. He came out later to tell us to bring out paper and pen and start to write:
Evidence of you admission to the school
Evidence say you have enough fund to study in Italy
Flight schedule
Health insurance.
Before the original admission package arrived,the schl resumption date was already 1.5months. Then application for visa was filed less than 1 month to resumption. On their website,I was made to understand that you will apply 22days before your proposed departure. Also,I feel her o/level result was necessary since she's going for a Diploma prog. and the embassy did request for it. I also feel since she had been given admission with the same O/Level then it shouldn't be an issue. Nothing know that's where d problem will arise.
Response from Lagos consulate came 1 mth after d schl has resumed,and it was refusal. Reason: Documents submitted to justify the purpose and condition of your visit is not reliable/ Remark: insufficient documents submitted for the purpose of your trip
This made her waited for another session which will be October,2012. I admonished her not to feel bad. God has reasons of doing things. This increases her commitment to fashion design and she concentrated on her training with a fashion designer here.While,she still have her deposited money in the school in Italy. The school rolled over the fee and gave her another admission for this year. So,I decided to fire again this time filling the loop holes.
She is going for a Diploma course in Fashion design at Firenze.
Listed below are the dox. she used:
* Admission letter from school(Certificate of Enrollment)
*Letter of accommodation for the school director
*Letter responsibility/Assurance from the school director
*Her O/Level result and WAEC website printout with scratch card
*Photos of some of her designs(Dresses she made)
*Statement of Purpose(consisting: reasons she wants to study fashion,reasons she chose Italy,reasons that will make her come back to Nigeria after studies)
*Sponsor's Bank statement: (Though first attempt was 6mths,The 2nd attempt was 4mths and had been printed out a month b4 visa application. The account balance was fatter in d 1st attempt than the 2nd attempt though)
*Letter from sponsor
*Letter of Intent from mother (Just formality though)
And of course faith in GOD above all.


@ernest,
if she wants to extend her visa after d Diploma to continue for Undergraduate course,did she has to come back to Nigeria?

@boss-man,

she was also issued with single entry,though I applied multiple for her.
did you use your accout for the visa application? was it a salary or business account?what was the balance u add at the time of printing the state? if business, did u include tax clearance certificate?

@ernestleon,
Grazie mio fratello.

@Boss_man,

I'll check wakanow. She is heading to Firenze.

@rubenic,

not my account. I used her Uncle's account. It's a personal account. The balance of the 1st attempt was about #40M but acct. balance of the second attempt was #3.5m. Though the turnover was about #75m. No tax clearance included,just letter of sponsorship with the sponsor's company letter head paper.

sorry im not in nija at the moment.To certify your documents wont cost you much roughly 25,000k or less if you go there yourself..As for the link,go to any high court you will find agents that take documents to abuja for legalization.
NOTE: it may take 2-3 weeks,a lawyer will be sent to investigate the authenticity of the documents before it will be certified.

if you take it there yourself,the 25k will probably be enough + tip inclusive...but wait how many documents do you really want to certify? If its more than one then the price wont be just 25k o..

@boss-man did your school send the hard copy of your admission letter? my school only sent the scanned copy and i dont think they will be sending the hard copy because it was not stated in the email they sent to me.

the BTA is not really a big deal 250euro should do but make she nor let those miscreants for MMA know say she get 250 euro dem go suck her dry.She should be more worried about the border of exit they make sure they suck her dry.The border of entry wont stress her just a look at her passport(visa page) ask a question or two then stamp the passport gbosa.

lagos to firenze is not a very popular route any flight you see will be very expensive.But why not try Royal Air Maroc,they travell lagos-morocco-milan,bologna,rome since she is going to florence then she should opt for rome because its closer..
As for part time job language may be a barrier but dont worry there are jobs that requires english speakers.You are allowed to work at maximum 20hours a week as a student and the minimum wage is 8euro per hour with a contract and 10 or more if its a black work(without a signed contract)
Life as a student in italy its great and fun most especially in florence
