Schengen visas are for short stays with a maximum duration of 90 days, every 180 days.

The national visas are for long stays, with a duration of from 91 to 365 days, aimed at a transfer to Italy by the applicant (visas for work, study, family reasons…), through the subsequent obtaining of a Card or a Residence Permit stay, issued by the competent Italian Questura for the area.

Some types are reserved exclusively for short-stay visas (business, sports competition, invitation, transit and transport), some for long-stay visas (adoption, diplomatic, investors, family reasons, re-entry, elective residence, working holidays) others for both, depending on whether the length of stay exceeds 90 days (medical treatment, self-employment, subordinate work, mission, religious reasons, research, study, volunteering).
