Scientific Visa Package

The Scientific Visa package helps researchers to obtain a permission to enter, stay and work in the European Union Member States for the purpose of carrying out scientific research. It is designed to make the process of receiving a residence permit more easy for researchers wishing to carry out research for a short-term (up to 3 months) or long-term (more than 3 months) in the EU.
