Study Aboard in Italy_type of visa needed

Jump to last reply

Visa question re: US student traveling to Italy for less than 90 days for a semester abroad program and would like to stay for an additional month to travel:

Looking for guidance re: which visa my daughter needs to apply for to travel to Italy in January. We reside in the US and my daughter is enrolled in a study abroad program at her home university for the spring semester. The program runs from January 30-April 27 (less than 90 days). After the semester concludes she would like to travel in Europe for approx. a month concluding with a family trip back in Italy. As of now her plans are to travel from Italy to the Netherlands, France and maybe Spain (all Schengen countries, I believe) and then back to Italy – returning to the US on May 25.

After spending time on the Italian Consulate website and contacting my Honorary Consulate office, I'm confused as to if/which visa(s) she needs...a Study Visa (even though her her study abroad program is less than 90 days), a Tourist Visa (since she will traveling after her study aboard program ends but for less than 90 days) or if she needs both or neither? And does she need to fill out the application for a National visa or a Schengen visa?

Thanks for any experience/knowledge you can share. Even if it's just a tip as to how to get someone from the Italian Consulate to answer your email/call.
