Visa Information

Important notice for VISA application

It is recommended to start the visa application process well in advance of the planned travel date. International attendees requiring a business visa to travel to Italy should contact the nearest Italian Embassy or Consulate.

Easy Steps to Follow When Applying for Your Visa

  1. 1) Find out if you need a VISA to enter Italy

  2. 2) If you need a VISA, get complete information at the Italian Embassy or Consulate nearest you

  3. 3) Request an Official Letter of Invitation (online soon): International attendees requiring an Official Letter of Invitation, in support of the visa application, may to submit their request. Please submit one request for each person that need an Official Invitation and please note that each letter will be prepared only once. Official Letters of Invitation aren’t issued automatically: you will receive it by email only if your request will be positively evaluated within 7 working days. In case of errors in the communication of your personal data (passport number, spelling of names etc.) we regret but we cannot fulfill any further request for a new Official Letter of Invitation.

  4. 4) Get all your documentation ready (a valid passport, appropriate application forms to be obtained from your local Embassy or Consulate detailing employment status, reason for travel and financial status, documents to support the application, proof of payment of visa fees, additional documents that your local Embassy or Consulate may require).
