Due to Covid-19, the US Embassy in Rome and the Consulates General of Milan, Florence and Neaples have reduced the consular staff and the availability of standard appointments.
With the Ministerial Decree (DPCM) of November 3rd 2020, valid until December 3rd, the Italian government has set new measures to contain the diffusion of Covid-19 in Italy. Such decree imposes a national curfew and several restrictions on a regional level. As a consequence of these measures, on November 5th, the U.S. Department of State has released a Level 3 Travel Advisory, recommending to all travelers to avoid non essential travels to Italy.
Furthermore, starting from Monday November 9th, the US Embassy in Rome and the American Consulates in Italy have reduced their activities. The provision of emergency services and release of urgent visas are still granted, but the activities of ordinary visa release are suspended until further notice. We remain available for further clarifications.
