For Entry requirements, please consult the official website http://vistoperitalia.esteri.it/home/en. Here you can find all the necessary information for foreigners intending to travel to Italy. A guided procedure will help you to verify if you need to apply for a visa based on your nationality, country of residence, reason for visit and length of stay. If you require a visa for Italy, you will be provided with all the necessary information and forms to submit your application. Submission of the required documentation does not automatically guarantee visa issuance. Upon entering Italy and the Schengen Area, even if you possess a visa, Border Authorities are authorized once again to check the visa documents required.
