WHAT IS A SCHENGEN VISA?

The Schengen Visa is a visa issued by the Consulate General of Italy in New York only to applicants who are resident in its consular jurisdiction (States of New York, Connecticut, New Jersey (only the Counties of Bergen, Hudson, Morris, Passaic, Sussex, Union, Warren, Essex, Middlesex, Monmouth, Hunterdon, Mercer, Somerset) and Bermuda.

The Schengen visa is valid for a maximum of 90 days and allows the visa holder to travel to all of the 26 European Countries that signed the Schengen Agreement namely: Austria, Belgium, Czech Republic, Denmark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Italy, Latvia, Lichtenstein, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, The Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden and Switzerland.

If you intend to visit one or more Schengen Countries in the course of a single trip, you must apply for a visa at the Consulate of the Country that is your main destination (i.e. where you will stay longer). If, in the course of your trip, you will spend an equal amount of time in different Countries, the visa must be requested at the Consulate of the Schengen Country port of entry (the Country you enter first)

Please note that the border authorities may refuse entry to a foreign national who does not meet all requirements.
