You’re in the process of applying for a passport and visas to come to Italy to visit your beloved club or country.
That’s why you need to be able to demonstrate a “business relationship” with them and prove that you can live in the country with your family.
But how do you know which one to choose?
And when do you need them?
How to get a business relationship with a club or team with a business?
There are several steps you need and a few key points you should be aware of.
What do I need to do to apply for a business visa?
Your passport must be valid for at least 3 months.
That means you need one for each of your birthdays.
For example, if you are born on January 31st you need a passport for January 31, February 1st and March 1st.
The visa must show you can have your passport for the duration of your business relationship and that you will have the necessary funds to support your family for at the end of the contract.
The passport should be valid in the name of your family member or employee.
That way you can show your family and friends that you’re doing everything possible to support them during the season.
For instance, if your mother works as a cook, you’ll need a business passport that shows you can support your mother in her day job.
What if I have an old passport?
You don’t need to apply if you have a passport with you for at most one season.
The most common reason for a expired passport is a long-term illness or injury.
The longer you’re out of the game, the more expensive the travel can be and you may be able take on a different team.
You might also want to check if you can renew your passport with the new league.
The number of season tickets available at the stadium and how many season tickets are available for each match matters too.
In Italy, a new season ticket costs €20, which is €9 more than the cheapest season ticket available at home.
If you’re buying a ticket at a game and then selling it to a friend at home, the €20 you paid at the match will be returned to you.
The other issue is whether you can afford to travel abroad.
The cost of a business trip abroad is dependent on the length of your contract with the club.
For the duration, you have to prove that the club is financially stable and that they can provide you with financial support.
In the short-term, it might be better to stay in Italy and apply for your business visa with a sponsor if you’re looking to get out of your current team and start working at another club.
How long can I stay?
Your visa can be renewed for up to 6 months, so if you don’t intend to move away any time soon, you can wait until you’ve been with your new club for 3 months before renewing your visa.
It’s not advisable to apply early if you haven’t got the required documents.
However, if it’s a shorter-term visa, you might want to consider the length to avoid a problem at the next transfer window.
You can apply for an extension after 3 months if you wish.
What does the new season look like for me?
The first season is usually the most expensive and you’ll usually pay €1,500 per game for a club that is only 5 points above the relegation zone.
The season ticket price is based on the average number of tickets sold per match, and it can be higher if you pay a premium for a seat.
But you can pay up to €1.5,000 per match to see the club play more games and to take part in extra training sessions.
For those who prefer to see a few games a week, the new ticket price will be higher.
If a club is not playing regularly, you could pay up the €1 for a season ticket.
What are the dates?
The games will usually start on the first Monday of April.
But the new seasons are usually announced earlier, on the same day as the last match of the season or, if they are played during the World Cup, the day after the final.
How much is it to travel?
You’ll have to pay a €5 booking fee.
That includes the time you spend on the train and in the airport.
For a group of 8, that’s €30.
There’s also a €1 booking fee for a single person.
However the price will increase after 6 months.
The price will also increase after 1 year.
How do I apply for my business visa for season tickets?
You can get a passport if you live in Italy, and a visa is required if you want to live in one of the clubs.
