Visas to enter the E.U.
Pilgrims from the U.S., Canada, Australia, Great Britain, and the E.U. may enter Italy using their passports; a visa is not required.
Pilgrims from other countries may need a visa to enter E.U. countries. The official source for information on visa requirements is your local Italian embassy or consulate. For unofficial information about visa requirements, click here.
JMJyouth cannot assist pilgrims with acquiring entry visas. Once final payment has been made, we will provide a letter confirming your participation in the INSPIRE2020 Corps pilgrimage. This letter should be included in your visa application. However, participation in our pilgrimage does not guarantee that a visa will be granted. Visa decisions are typically made within three months of travel, after the refund deadline has passed. This means that JMJyouth, unfortunately, is not able to provide refunds to pilgrims whose visa applications are rejected.
