VISA Information


AMPS 2018 will provide documentation for registered authors of accepted papers to support obtaining a travel visa to Italy. Below is some helpful information.

Please note: the following information is provided on an unofficial basis for the sole purpose of assistance. The Conference cannot be held responsible for any change in the data. It is the responsibility of the participant to ultimately validate it from official sources, some of which are named below.

Documents – invitation letter – VISA

European Citizens whose country is under the authority of the Schengen Treaty may enter Italy with nothing more than a valid identity card or passport. Citizens from all other countries must show their passport on the border; where a visa is required, this must also be presented to the border authorities and must indicate the length of the holder’s stay and his or her destination. Visa applications – specifying the reason for the trip –  must be made to the Italian Consulate in the applicant’s country of residence, and are generally issued 90 days after the application was been made.

Once visitors arrive in Italy, those who will not be staying in a hotel or similar accommodation facility must register with the local police headquarters within 8 days of their arrival in the country. Visitors staying in hotels or other tourist accommodation facilities will automatically be registered upon reception there.

We encourage the participants needing a visa to Italy to register as soon as possible. It is the participant’s responsibility to contact the embassy or consulate of Italy in their country.
