Could anyone tell me what c/o is?

Hi there;

Could you download the file in the link:

The file is on your right hand side as "Application for residence permit for students and doctoral students". There is a c/o section in the file you download as pdf. Could you tell me what abbr. is?

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

So what should I write the c/o section? I mean I already filled the other boxes in that "latest address in coutry of origin" section.

So, care of John Doe?
Leave it blank.  You could put in N/A or NONE if they really don't want anything left blank.

It simply means to send it to someone besides you who will see that you get it.  For example, if you wanted to have it sent to your father if you were unsure  where you would be:

Your Name
c/o of your father
your fathers address
your fathers city
