DO I NEED A VISA FOR ITALY?

Ciao, travelers to Italy!

“Do I need a visa for Italy?” – this question may occur in your thoughts when you start planning a trip to Italy. The best source to find the answer to this question is the website of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy. If you need a visa for Italy, you will be provided with all the information and forms needed to submit your application.

HERE IS A SHORT INSTRUCTION:

?Open the website of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation of Italy.

?Answer 4 questions regarding your nationality, country of residence, length of your stay in Italy, and reasons for your stay

?Check the Questionnaire results and then follow the instructions to apply for a tourist visa if needed.

❕By the way, all Schengen, EU, EEA, and Swiss nationals are free to travel to Italy without a visa if their travel does not exceed 90 days.

If you are planning to stay in Italy longer than 90 days, you have to apply for an Italy Long-Stay Visa, also known as a D-Visa or a National Visa. Keep in mind, that a long-stay visa isn’t the only permission you need if you want to live in Italy. With an Italian long-stay visa, you can enter Italy and then you need to follow the procedure to apply for residence permission in Italy.
