Before coming to Porto
If you are not a national of EU or EEA countries, please make sure that you hold an appropriate student’s visa. Please note that if you are a citizen of a country that does not need an entry visa to Portugal (Brazil, Republic of Korea, Canada, USA, Venezuela, etc) you will still need a student’s visa in order to be registered and we will not be able to do so without it!
Don’t forget to make an appropriate Health Insurance, to cover any problems you may have during your stay in Portugal. You can also request a European Health Insurance Card if available at your country of origin.
Always ask for confirmation that the accommodation you have booked is available for your date of arrival.
Check your e-mail regularly to have the latest information regarding your study period at UFP.
Contact your Departmental Coordinator / Academic Tutor / Supervisor at UFP by email if you have any doubts about your courses. Take the opportunity to introduce yourself and to schedule an appointment for your first days in Porto.
