Italy Visa Application Center in Russia
The Italian Visa Application Center in Russia started working again as usual after the stoppage of acceptance of documents due to the inability to pay the consular fee.
The center of Italy could not accept documents from persons who did not pay the consular fee due to the “temporary impossibility” of the Intesa Bank to accept and process payments.
Previously, the acceptance of documents for issuing tourist visas to Italy resumed on March 1, 2022. Order by the Minister of Health of Italy, Roberto Speranza, to lift the quarantine due to COVID-19 for arrivals from all non-European countries was entered into force on 1 March.
