Student Visa
Hello my name is Tyler Duringer. I was inquiring about obtaining an Italian Student Visa. I am accepted to the Apicus International School of Hospitality in Florence from May 10th to June 21st. However, I am in the position where I could possibly not be able to attend the school in Florence due to the length of my current studies in Switzerland. The issue is I am an American student; currently studying in Brig, Switzerland, and I am limited in my availability to visit United States consulates.

I am asking first, if it is possible to obtain the Italian student visa and second, where I need to go to obtain the visa. If I need to fly to Italy I will. If I need to fly back to the U.S. I will. Please give me a more definite answer on how to attend my dream school in Italy.

Also to my understandings I need to be competent in these pre application standards:

Accommodation: I will obtain an apartment from the school’s program.

Enough financial means: which I can prove with my bank statements, and those statements of my parents.

Entitled to medical care: HTH Medical insurance is my provider from the school.

Money necessary to travel back: I already have my physical ticket purchased to go back to the U.S.

Thank you for your time and please respond to me at your earliest convince.
