The ISIC card is proof of full-time student status and offers access to a wide range of student discounts. It is issued by the ISIC Association, a non-profit organization registered in Denmark, with recognition in nearly 130 countries.
To qualify, you must be a full-time student aged 12 or above, attending a school, college, or university. There is no upper age limit, but you need to prove your full-time student status.
The ISIC card provides discounts on daily life expenses, entertainment, food, and travel. You can enjoy discounts at museums, hostels, transportation services, attractions, restaurants, and more. Check the official ISIC website for a complete list of available discounts.
You can apply online by visiting the ISIC website, selecting your country, and completing the form. You will need to upload a digital photo, proof of full-time student status, proof of identity, and make the required payment. Alternatively, you can purchase a card at a local ISIC office.
The cost varies by country and ranges between US$4-25. Pricing is determined based on each country’s purchasing power.
The ISIC card is valid for one full calendar year from the date of issue.
Ensure you have enough time to receive your card before traveling or studying abroad. Online orders may take 3-4 weeks for delivery, depending on your country’s postal service. Alternatively, you can obtain the card in the country you will be traveling to, but remember to bring all necessary documents with you.
