The Introduction Week will be held from the 31st of August to the 5th of September, 2020. Students are asked to arrive 1–2 days before the beginning of the Introduction Week. Students who are arriving from highly affected countries or citizens of those countries who are required to self-isolate should arrive earlier, preferably 2 weeks before the beginning of the Introduction Week.

The list of countries whose citizens or visitors must self-isolate after arriving to Lithuania is constantly renewed. Incoming students must follow the information published here: https://socmin.lrv.lt/lt/naujienos/valstybes-is-kuriu-grizus-butina-izoliacija-zemelapis.

Before arrival, students must inform the Incoming Mobility Coordinator (incoming@go.kauko.lt) about the details of their trip to Lithuania: departure and arrival airports, transit countries, exact date and time of arrival to Lithuania.

Students arriving for traineeships must contact the International Coordinator not later than 2 days before their predicated date of arrival and double-check the conditions and training possibilities.

In mediation letters for visas for non-EU citizens, Kaunas University of Applied Sciences is asking to issue visas from the 17th of August, 2020 (2 weeks before the beginning of the Introduction Week).

Incoming students are asked to contact 1808 after their arrival and, if possible, make the COVID-19 test. Students are asked to provide the results of the test to the Incoming Mobility Coordinator (incoming@go.kauko.lt) and their ESN KK mentor.

If the test results are positive, the student must inform the Incoming Mobility Coordinator and ESN KK mentors.

Incoming students who are planning to live in the dormitory of Kaunas University of Applied Sciences, are provided with a place to live on the day of their arrival. Students who must self-isolate will be provided with rooms with individual entrance, sanitary equipment and kitchen. International Relations Services and ESN KK mentors will provide the students with information where and how to order food and other products on the Internet.

If several students study the same subject and at least one of those students must self-isolate, the classes of that subject are held online during the period of self-isolation.

If citizens or visitors of a particular country are unable to arrive in Lithuania until the 30th of September, the mobility is cancelled.

International Relations Services, International Coordinators and Study Departments consult students only remotely. If necessary, students who don‘t need to self-isolate can be consulted face-to-face, however, they must wear facial masks or respirators.

Mentors communicate remotely with students in self-isolation. Other communication methods can be chosen with students who are not self-isolating. ESN KK organizes free time activities in the usual way. Students who don‘t need to self-isolate can participate in the events.

These procedures might change at any time due to changes in the country. Incoming students must follow any possible changes.
