Visa information

A travel visa is an official document that shows you’re allowed to enter a specific country, for a specific length of time, to do a specific activity.

Depending on your nationality and the country you’re visiting, you may require a visa prior to travel. Some visa information is provided in the opportunity advert. If you do need a visa to enter the country you are visiting, this will be confirmed to you by the DMU Global team. The DMU Global pre-departure information session will also provide further information about visas and how to obtain one.

Please note that you are responsible for obtaining your visa. If you fail to be granted a visa in time for your opportunity then you will be liable for any costs you may have incurred. This will also include paying back any DMU Global bursaries you may have received. 

Before making a visa application, we advise that you refer to the DMU Global & DSU Advice Student Visa FAQ document.
