While many borders in Europe are nowadays a thing of the past, sadly this does not hold true for all countries yet. When traveling from certain countries to Italy a Schengen visa is required. A visa is a document that allows you to enter a certain country or in this case the Schengen Area. This page contains information about the procedure we will apply for participants that are in need of such a visa.

Applying for a visa is your own responsibility, we will support your application in any way we can, but in the end the responsibility is yours. If you are in need of a visa make sure to carefully read this full page and stay in contact with us throughout the application process.

Visa Application Procedure

To apply for a visa you need to fill in an application form and bring this form along with possible other documents (identification) to a Italian embassy. We will send you a personal invitation letter to accompany this application and increase the success rate. Applying for such a visa in most cases requires being physically present at the embassy at one point, to verify your identity. After you have done this you will get the result and know whether you can enter in Italy or not. To check if you need the Visa, go to the official Italian Government website: http://vistoperitalia.esteri.it/home/en
