VLIR-UOS wishes to provide all UOS stakeholders with information on measures related to mobility, costs and duration of VLIR-UOS programmes, projects and scholarships during the present Corona crisis.
Please consult the latest update of our informative note here (version 7 September 2020). The present document replaces all previous versions.
Please note that travels of international students are to be considered as ‘essential’ travels. This means that the newly selected master scholars can, in principle, travel to Belgium to start their master studies in academic year 2020-2021.
It is advisable that all scholars get in touch with the Belgian embassy (or visa application center) in their country to request more information and to make an appointment once possible.
It should however be noted that
· in some countries international flights could be banned (more info here).
· the evolution of the Corona virus is unpredictable, as international media is currently demonstrating, so please take this into account and consult multiple information sources before planning any travel.
