For Russian tourists who dream of going to Italy, as well as tour operators who have already begun selling programs there, they announced good news: problems with issuing visas were resolved promptly, visas are being issued again. This statement was officially published by the Italian visa center in Moscow. According to the statement, it is working as usual again.
“We inform you that the Italian Visa Application Center and Intesa Bank are working as usual!” – the message of the VMS visa center says.
Recall that the problems arose last week. “Due to the temporary impossibility of the Intesa Bank to accept and process payments for the payment of the consular fee, the Italian visa center cannot accept documents from persons who have not paid the consular fee,” the VMS visa center said in a statement. As a result, only tourists who paid the visa fee in advance and had a printout confirming its payment could apply for a visa. Or those who are exempt from paying the Consular fee. This created problems, including for tourists who bought tours to Italy. Read the details at the link.
Recall that tourists from Moscow, St. Petersburg and Arkhangelsk receive visas to Italy through VMS. AlmavivA, another Italian visa center, operates in Yekaterinburg, Nizhny Novgorod, Rostov-on-Don, Novosibirsk, Kazan and Samara.
