Visa and Invitation Letter


EU countries, Commonwealth countries, and the USA do NOT need a visa.

Citizens of the European Union (EU) countries, as well as of Switzerland, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway may enter in Italy with their national identity card, provided there is a photograph.

Schengen Visa holders are allowed to enter in Italy.

The Schengen Visa has made traveling between 25 member countries (22 European Union states and 3 non-EU members) much easier and less bureaucratic. Traveling on a Schengen Visa means that the visa holder can travel to any (or all) member countries using one single visa, thus avoiding the hassle and expense of obtaining individual visas for each country. A Schengen visa allows the holder to travel freely within the Schengen countries for a maximum stay of up to 90 days in a 6 months period.
