Visa info. - Moving to Italy
I am hoping to move to Italy in 2006.
I have visited many times over the past 7 years and have been taking the steps to plan my move for the last 5 years.
I have learned the language, am in the process of selling my belongings
in the U.S. etc. My biggest question is what type of visa to apply for.
1. 3 month travel visa - can I leave the country and re-enter and get
another 3 month visa? If so how many times can I do this.
2. Student visa. Do I have to go to shcool yearround to remain in Italy
for the whole year? Do I have to attend a Scuola Stranieri or any
univeristy in the country. As long as the course is other than Italian
language, am I able to take only one course per semester to qualify
for a student visa. Also is a certain grade point average required to
continue taking classes.
Once I have lived in Italy a year or two I will want to work, so a residence visa is out of the question. I would like a year or two to perfect my language skills so I don't want a work visa for now.
I have read past forums and contacted the Italian consulate but have found no answers to my questions.
Any help will be much appreciated.
