Invitation Letters & Visa Applications
How do I apply for a visa?
Visa regulations depend on your nationality and country of origin. We recommend that you contact your local Italy Consulate or Embassy for official instructions on the specific Visa regulations and application procedures that apply to you.
Is it possible to send an official invitation letter directly to my local Italy Consulate / Embassy?
Unfortunately we are unable to send invitation letters directly to the foreign consulates or embassies. Invitation letters are prepared solely for individuals and are e-mailed as PDF attachment documents directly to them and if requested, also sent to them by regular mail. To receive an invitation letter, please send your full name, address and passport number to the secretariat at WSP2017@mci-group.com
