Understanding these legal obligations during the application process for studying medicine, dentistry, or veterinary medicine in Bulgaria is highly important. Before beginning the medicine programme, students must be prepared to meet the requirements of the student visa in Bulgaria or for any European country.

What are the Visa Requirements for Candidates that Plan to Study Medicine in Bulgaria

After the issuance of the Letter of Acceptance by the University, non-EU students should apply at the Bulgarian embassy or consular office in their own countries for a “Student, D type Visa” which is valid for 3 to 6 months.

  3. The original Certificate of admission to the Medical University issued by the Bulgarian “Ministry of Education, Youth and Science”;
