Many people have asked us about the requirements to enter Italy in 2020, and it is that more and more travellers from Latin America are encouraged to know this wonderful country. At the moment, they remain the same as in 2019 and that we explain one by one in the video.
That is why I have decided to write this post, which can be considered a continuation of the one I published a few months ago with the requirements to travel to Spain.
In this case, I am going to focus on the requirements to travel to Italy as a tourist, that is, for stays of less than 90 days, since the criteria to emigrate to Italy are very diverse and depend on each type of emigration that is going to do, it can be for study, work, roots, etc.
Like Spain, Italy is part of the Schengen area made up of 26 European countries. Check here the states that do not require a permit to enter the Schengen area.
As you already know, onlinetravelinfobase.me is the only European travel agency with a presence in several countries, which has an area specialized in Venezuelans & Latin Americans. We understand your concerns, and we adapt to provide solutions tailored to your needs. Venezuelans, Mexicans, Hondurans, Colombians, Uruguayans, and Argentines do not need to apply for a visa to access the Schengen area. However, it is essential for some Latin American countries, such as Ecuador, Guyana, Bolivia. Here is the list of countries that need a visa to enter the Schengen area.
Have your valid passport,
valid for at least three months after the scheduled date of departure from the Schengen area.
2. Have a roundtrip ticket. Only citizens with a European passport or a study or work visa can buy a one-way ticket.
3. Show that you have a place to sleep. You can count on an invitation letter, which must be processed by an Italian citizen or foreigner who resides legally in Italy, making herself responsible to the Italian State of the tourist who is inviting to her home. There are several methods, and sometimes they change them, so before travelling, we recommend consulting directly with the Italian Ministry of Tourism. At the end of this post, we attach a model. This letter contains the visitor’s information: full name, passport number, date of arrival, return, the exact address of the resident where they will stay, and contact information (email and telephone).
The alternative for this process:
Hotel reservation and tourist circuit. Not all tourists will arrive at the home of someone they know, but the immigration authorities must know precisely where this traveller will be staying, so they can request a hotel and tourist circuit reservation.
From onlinetravelinfobase.me, we recommend having a hotel reservation as long as the trip is equal to or less than seven days and combining the hotel reservation and tourist circuit when they are staying longer than seven days.
Quickly through a Dream Travel Maker from onlinetravelinfobase.me, you have to send an email to [email protected] or click here and talk to our experts in real-time.
4. Schengen travel insurance. Are you asking for this requirement at the time of migration at an Italian airport, but even the country of origin’s authorities are requesting it before boarding.
There are many options for this insurance, ranging from small coverages to the most diverse ones that include theft – lost luggage and cancellation.
5. Economic means. The Italian State must confirm that you have sufficient financial means to support yourself during the days of your trip. You can demonstrate this to the authorities by showing cash, bank account statements in freely convertible currencies (in the case of Venezuela, while there is exchange control, it is not valid to show the accounts in Bolívares), traveler’s checks, credit cards (the same in currency). Freely convertible).
The amounts required by immigration authorities change frequently, so before travelling, do not forget to check directly with the ministry’s website.
– from 1 to 5 days: available amount to prove € 269.60 if you travel alone. If two or more people are travelling, each one must show € 212.81.
– from 6 to 10 days: € 44.93 for each day of stay. for example: 7 days: 7 x 44.93 = € 314.51. If two or more people travel, each one must demonstrate per day that they have € 26.33.
– from 11 to 20 days: a fixed fee of € 51.64 plus € 36.67 for each day in Italy. For example: 15 days: they are 15 x 36.67 = 550.05 + 51.64 = € 601.69. If two or more people travel, each one must demonstrate in addition to the fixed fee of € 25.82, have € 22.21 per day.
– between 20 and 90 days: a fixed fee of € 206.58 plus € 27.89 for each day of stay. Example: 30 days: 30 x 27.89 = 836.70 + 206.58 = € 1043.28. If two or more people are travelling, each must also demonstrate the fixed fee of € 118.79, an additional € 17.04 per person.
You can see the updated data through this link on the Italian police page.
Now, if a family group travels where one of the members has a European passport, and as long as they are relatives of ascending (mothers and fathers), descendants (children), or a partner (husband or wife), they can carry out migration management together by the community box office.
In addition to those documents that it never hurts to have with you when travelling to Italy, I also want to share some useful tips to ensure that the travel experience is as pleasant as possible.
- As a general rule, you must arrive at the airline’s counter at the airport at least 2 hours before the flight departs. Still, if the departure is from Venezuela, it is advisable to arrive at least 3 hours before Maiquetía.
- Confirm the baggage policy in advance. It usually is information published on the airline’s website, purchasing your tickets directly with onlinetravelinfobase.me; our Dream Travel Makers will indicate this information.
- How to dress? I always recommend dressing casual towards elegant, essential that the clothes are comfortable, but avoid travelling very informal or with sportswear. When they are long flights, try as much as possible that the clothes are not the kind that wrinkles a lot.
- Try to sleep as possible during the flight; this will minimize jet lag.
- Only 100 ml of liquid are allowed in hand luggage; the airport will hold the rest. Additionally, I always recommend that you carry it in zip-lock bags to avoid spillage.
- Are your ears plugged on the plane? You can chew gum or candy or even buy earplugs at the drugstore.
- Before you go to immigration, dress up, and adopt a regular and relaxed attitude. When arriving at the cabin with the official a “hello,” “good morning,” or “good afternoon,” and the passport in hand is enough.
- Generally, immigration authorities, both in Venezuela and Italy, will ask the mot.
- So any additional questions or doubts can contact us through our communication channels or in this comments section.
I hope this information has been useful to you. If so, share it with your friends.
