Rome, Paris, Amsterdam.  Major European cities are served by flights from all over the world. But where do we fly to? Well, if it’s all the same to you, to save costs go to the cheapest airport.

As you will see, these are not all the countries of the European Union, because some member countries are not part of the Schengen agreement and have different immigration requirements for tourists. This is the case of Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, Romania, Ireland and England, which have other requirements and visa rules.

An important piece of information is the ETIAS travel permit, the new Travel Information and Authorization System that the European Union has created for citizens of countries that are currently exempt from visa requirements to visit the Schengen Area.

Those wishing to travel to Europe for tourism or business purposes must meet certain requirements for entry into Europe with ETIAS, in addition to having all the necessary documentation to complete the travel authorization application.

You should also keep in mind, what kind of activities you might do during your trip so that you prepare the appropriate clothing, whether you will be hiking, diving, partying, skiing or sightseeing in the city, you will need the appropriate clothing.

Don’t forget the necessary batteries, cables and chargers for your phone, tablet and laptop. Plug adapters are vital if you are traveling to a country that has different electrical outlets than your home country.

For example, if you are traveling to the United States, you must take into account the rules of TSA (Transportation Security Administration) which has policies about transporting liquids at airports in that country.

There I put my passport, ID card, credit cards, travel insurance, family book where my Astrid Sofia appears, foreign currency bills if I travel outside the country and even a pen. Because I always have to fill out forms at the airports and I “have to” do it for my whole family when we travel together.

It is advisable to arrive two hours before the departure of your flight; you have to check in your luggage, and if the flight is overbooked it will take you some time. Moreover, in case of an unfortunate overbooking and the longer you take to check in, the more risk you run of being grounded.

Citizens from all other countries must present their passport at the border and, where required, also their visa, which must indicate the length of stay and the destination.

The visa must be requested at the Italian consulates of the country of residence, specifying the reason for the trip. It is usually obtained within 90 days of application. Once at the destination, if not staying overnight in a hotel structure, it is necessary to register at the police headquarters within eight days from the day of arrival. If the tourists stay overnight in hotels or other types of tourist accommodation structures, the registration will be made at the reception of such structure.
