It is noted that the documents with electronic signatures are allowed by the EU.Applications without the relative supporting documentation will not be taken into consideration.

Before the mobility

Step 2:  Invitation letter from PUAS.
Step 3:  Learning Agreement Student Mobility for Studies (LA)

    Attention: Electronic signatures and circulation of scanned format documents are allowed by the program except the Grant Agreement (GA).

Step 4:  VISA
All incoming participants to PUAS from non-EU countries need to apply and hold a valid visa.
In general, the procedure is followed:

  • The participant contacts the nearest authorized Greek Embassy or Consulate in order to receive information regarding all the necessary documents and the procedure he has to follow (Greek Missions around the world can be found at: http://www.mfa.gr/en/appendix/greece-bilateral-relations/a.html
  • Applying for visa, the Invitation Letter or the Mobility Agreement signed and stamped by PUAS is needed.
  • All the necessary documents are sent to the Greek Authorities via e-mail, informing them also about the expected mobility.
    Attention: It is advised to start the visa application process as soon as possible (more than one month before the mobility), since the procedures usually require a considerable amount of time.
    Attention: Possible expenses for visa will be paid by the program upon receiving the relevant receipt via e-mail.

Step 5:  Insurance
All the participants are obliged to have adequate insurance coverage. The following insurances are mandatory (Be careful – Travel insurance is not enough):

  1. Health care insurance
  2. General liability insurance coverage for third party
  3. Personal accident coverage
  • issued in home country
  • valid for the host country
  • valid for the whole period of mobility and
  • issued or translated in English
    Attention: Expenses for insurance are covered by the participant.

Step 6:  Travel Ticket

  • All the participants are responsible for issuing their travel ticket.
  • The travel costs include all possible public travel means that the grantee may use in order to arrive to the final destination. The amount is constant no matter what means the grantee will use.
    Attention: In exceptional cases, PUAS will pre-purchase the travel ticket on behalf of the Student grantee (the cost of the travel ticket will be deducted from the total grant).

Step 7:  Grant Agreement (GA)
The procedure of the Grant Agreement completion follows:

  • Sent to participant in word format
  • The applicant must fill in the data
  • Final check and approval by PUAS before signatures
  • Returned to the participant for signatures

    Attention: Electronic signatures and circulation of scanned format documents are allowed by the program except the Grant Agreement. Therefore, PUAS incoming participants should hand in the original document (in 2 copies) as soon they arrived at PUAS.

Step 8:  Grant Transfer
As soon as the Grant Agreement with the participant’s signature is received by PUAS via e-mail, the process of transferring the 70% of the grant to the participant will be initiated. The necessary documents for the grant transfer, which should be e-mailed to PUAS are scanned copies of the participant’s:

  • ID/Passport
  • Visa
  • Bank account details
  • Insurance (translated in English, if not issued)
  • Issued air ticket and boarding passes – Both (going & returning) boarding passes have to be sent to PUAS after the mobility

    Attention: There is a possibility for the incoming Students grantees to open a bank account in Greece upon their request as soon as they arrived at PUAS.

PUAS will pay the remaining 30% of the grant after the end of the mobility and the completion of the following:

  • Successful submission of the online EU survey sent to the participant at the end of the mobility period.
  • The certificate of attendance issued by the host University.
  • All boarding passes and/or tickets used by the participant sent back via e-mail to PUAS.

During the mobilty

  • Visit the respective Erasmus Office at the partner HEI to complete the Certificate of Arrival , which should be sent electronically at erasmus.global@puas.gr . It would be of great assistance to attend all the prepared events for Erasmus students (orientation week)
  • If , for any reason, you want to modify the education plan, you should contact both the Erasmus Ofifce at the partner HEI and PUAS Erasmus Office, as there is already a signed Learning Agreement. In that case you should complete the “Section to be completed during the mobility”.
  • Visit regularly PUAS Erasmus Office website and contact us if any issue arise.
