Visas to Italy for Sri Lankans

We regret that the Council cannot provide a Letter of Recommendation to obtain a Business Visa to Italy, even for members. Each application has to be individually evaluated by the Visa Officer at the Embassy at their sole and exclusive discretion, which is according to Schengen guidelines. See the VFS website for more information.

Current Members are advised that it is, of course, possible to obtain a letter stating that you are a member of the Council. If our valued members' bona fide staff, with a designation of General Manager or above, are planning a business trip to Italy, please do contact the Secretariat, we will be happy to offer assistance and advice.
