IMPACT – MEDIUM
What is the change? Italy has switched to an online application form for Schengen visitor visas.
What does the change mean? To apply for a Schengen visa through an Italian consulate, applicants should go to the online portal, fill out and sign the application form, print out the form containing the barcode and bring it to the appropriate Italian consulate.
Background: Schengen visas are valid for stays of up to 90 days in the Schengen region, and travel should begin in the country that issues the visa.
BAL Analysis: The switch to the online system is intended to reduce errors and improve the application process. The new system applies to Schengen visas only and does not affect long-term visas.
This alert has been provided by the BAL Global Practice group and our network provider located in Italy. For additional information, please contact your BAL attorney.
