WHAT TO KNOW:
Foreign citizens who intend to enter the Italian national territory or the Schengen Area in general, must have the economic resources capable of guaranteeing the expenses of the planned stay and of the return at the end of the trip. The availability of means of subsistence is therefore to be considered a prerequisite for entry into the Schengen Area. (Visa Code).
The Directive establishes that the availability of funds have to be demonstrated by foreign citizens by presenting money, bank guarantees, insurances, equivalent debt securities, prepaid service titles or other documents proving the availability of sources of income in Italy.
