Visa Application Process

All applicants must have reliable intentions supported by actual travel arrangements (accommodation and return flight) for the whole trip. In case of multiple destinations within Italy or in other Schengen Countries, a detailed travel plan showing all relevant arrangements (including internal connections) must be provided and explained. Applications failing the verification process, through checks carried out on hotels, inviting parties and airlines, will be discarded with prejudice.

Important Information on Biometrics: As part of the visa application procedure, an applicant aged 12 years old and above must come in person to complete their biometric which is a 10 digit finger scan. Your application shall not be accepted if you have temporary injuries, or have a coating of henna (or similar) on the hands, on date of visit to the Visa Application Centre.

Step 1

Applications for Italy visa (Short-stay and Long stay) are accepted at the Visa Application Centre.

Step 2

Before applying, please ensure you are very clear on your ‘purpose of visit’ – do remember we are here to assist and help you through the entire visa application process but are not permitted to advise or guide you on choosing a visa category. Since our work is primarily administrative in nature, we have no say on whether you will be granted a visa or residence permit and how long it will take to process, as this is entirely the prerogative of the Embassy of Italy in Singapore.

Step 3

Please go to the link “VISA TYPES” to understand details of various visas.

Step 4

Please ensure you read the security regulation notices before you visit the Visa Application Centre.
