What school did you apply to that waive IELTS Score for you madam.

Re: Lets Talk About Estonia by skimpy(f): 8:24am On Feb 10
When booking your appointment, the list of documents will be written there. Do all your photocopying and printing from home cos it’s freaking expensive at the visa center. The documents I used are hotel reservation, flight reservation, letter from my work place showing I will be on leave during the period I requested for, marriage cert and my son’s birth cert to prove that I have social ties to Nigeria, statement of account, itinerary(list of tourist places i intend visiting and on which days), work I.D card and it’s photocopy, consent letter for my son to travel with me from the dad. Don’t bother about insurance, it’s included in the visa fee. They only take cash at the visa center and your dollars must not have any stain, stamp or tear. They also don’t give change so go with your exact $125. You can request for dhl to bring your passport back to you

Thank you for submitting this report here. I want to ask, what are the required documents that was needed to get Turkish visa? Do you have to get a letter from work or from school or the likes before you got their tourist visa? Thank you.

Please brother in the house, I need help from you.
I want to travel using Tourist visa to just apply for study visa, please can I go with one way flight ticket and Just leave from the place to my school in Europe?

Will there be issue at Airport ?
I want to save money since I plan to leave direct to school once I get my visa

I think no country will issue you a tourist visa without confirmation of your return and you could be denied an entry if the immigration in the country can't see a proof that you'll be leaving. They might not even allow you to leave at Nigerian airport if you don't have return ticket. So you need two-way travel ticket when going for tourism. But once you get your visa from that country, then one way to the country of your destination.

Thank you for your response. I will write my questions here if just in case I go through this route.

So I have finally landed in Estonia. Actually landed a week ago but couldn’t gather myself to write this message. I went through Turkey and it was quite smooth. Traveled with a child and we spent approx 1.2M for the entire process including flights and visa fees. I am certain it will be cheaper for most people because your flights can be cheaper. Our flight fees were most expensive cos I had to fly business class because of the comfort for the child. I’d itemize most of the fees I can remember.

Flight to Abuja, Uber to the visa center, $250 visa fees for 2 people and miscellaneous= 200k
Return Flight to turkey: 700k
9 nights at Hotel: 52k
Food and transport: 51k
Estonian Visa: 40k
Flight to Estonia: 212k
Total: 1,255,000

My Estonian visa was approved within 5 days. Submitted on a Monday and collected the passports on a Friday. No serious questions were asked. If you are interested in applying for turkey visa, you can reply my comment. I will write all what I went through there so that you don’t have to waste money like I did. Photocopying 1 page is 100naira there. Printing of 1 page is 1k. They just extort people a lot there.

Also, I got insurance for myself and child for 39k valid for a year. You don’t have to do swisscare or any expensive insurance. The name of the insurance I used is Axa Mansard.

If you are going through turkey, I can recommend the hotel I stayed. The hotel manager speaks English and can help pick you up from the airport at a cheaper price than what taxis charge, breakfast is free and it’s approx 5500 per night. The room can perfectly sleep 3 adults cos there are 3 beds in it. The name is Lion city hotel. Reply this if you need the hotel managers contact.
Bro can you shed more lights please.. what visa type I really wish you can assist me in processing it. Thanks.

Just a note, uppercase words are hard to read and its usually interpreted to mean you're yelling. So better to use lower case.

1. First and foremost is to get admitted. If you're admitted then this issues can come to the table.

1. You can easily get approximate amount of flight to Egypt using one of the booking sites like Expedia (I don't know the amount that's why I said this).

2. Again similarly, you can find out which is cheaper for the time you want to travel. I think usually Ethiopian airline but I cannot say. Flight price is very unpredictable.

3. Estonian don't issue a separate study visa. They issue D-Visa which is the same as long stay visa. The duration of the processing is at the descretion of the embassy but usually it takes average of 1 week (based on people's feedback, anything can change though).

4. This is also subject to you checking the hotels available in the country where you are going to apply for visa. You can check booking.com to have a rough idea how much this could cost.

5. I can't say but I would advice I think 50 dollar per day, but I don't know. Any one who has traveled to this place can give you an idea how or you can search online what average spending in that country.

6. Now this question sounds like you're now talking about when you get to Estonia. The previous questions sounds like what you would do in the country where Estonia has embassy (presumably Egypt). If you're referring to Estonia then your master card should still work there, and of course your bank will rip you off for every transaction (this is normal).
But If you're referring to Egypt then it should still be handy to have your card with you. You can have a little local currency with you for emergency.

But I would mention that you need to get the more important information before commiting your emotions into things like flights, master card etc

1. Admission, do you have an admission.
2. Have you decided on what route to take? If its Estonian embassy in Cairo, I will inform you that they don't have appointment slot till the end of April (as at today, they might have for other months in the future though) so consider your options well.

UPDATE

The appointment availability changes and so sometimes there might be appointment available again on those booked days.

Exactly
Re: Lets Talk About Estonia by skimpy(f): 5:54am On Feb 14
There’s usually a validity period for all visas. You can be given a 2 weeks visa and the validity is for 3months. In such case, you don’t need to travel on the start date. You can travel anytime within the validity period but at the point of entry, you will only be allowed in for the 2 weeks.

For example: visa start date is 10/05/20
Visa end date: 10/07/20
Duration of stay: 15days

This means you can travel anytime between 10 May and 10 July and spend 15 days but you must leave the country on or before 10/07/20 regardless of whether you have spent the 15days or not. Do you get it?

Notarize you transcript and certificate or statement of result, if you have other qualification related to your course worth mentioning. Egypt is cost efficient but stressful from what I hear, a lady left through turkey and from her expense analysis it was kinda okay.

Dear,
I am very new to this page, I want to continue schooling in Estonia but don't know where to start from. Is it possible for me to get admitted and resume studies in September this year? also, I'm not interested in writing IELTS so I would prefer a school without IELTS.
