EU Visitors’ Programme

What is the European Union Visitors’ Programme? (EUVP)

The European Union Visitors’ Programme (EUVP) enables young leaders from countries outside the European Union to obtain first-hand impressions of the EU policies, institutions and achievements and to increase mutual understanding between professionals from non-EU countries and their EU counterparts.

Established in 1974, the EUVP is jointly supported and administered by the European Parliament and the European Commission. The EUVP visit consists of an individual five- to eight-day programme of meetings with EU officials at the EU institutions in Brussels, Strasbourg and /or Luxembourg.

All programmes are coordinated and arranged by the EUVP Secretariat in Brussels. Each visit is tailored to match the profile of each participant and takes place during the following year. Travel and hotel costs for the round trip are covered by the EUVP. As well, a per diem is paid to each participant to cover meals and incidentals.
