Travel Notes:

You need a passport to travel to Italy. Passport processing can be slow, so if you do not have a passport, you need to apply for one immediately. Complete instructions can be found at
A passport with at least 6 months validity past the expected date of return to the US is required for travel. It is your responsibility to review the expiration date on your passport to ensure that it meets these requirements.

Why do I need to send you a copy of my Passport?
Effective November 1, 2010, the Travel Safety Administration (TSA) now requires that we enter all of your passport information into your flight record at the time of ticketing. If it is not entered correctly or in a timely manner you may be denied boarding or experience additional travel delays. To avoid these consequences, simply send a legible copy of your passport to Chamber Discoveries as soon as possible; it will be kept in confidential files and only shared as needed with the airlines.

If you are a U.S. citizen with a valid U.S. passport traveling for tourism or business, you can apply to enter the Schengen area without a visa for a period of three months within each six-month period. If you spend three months in the Schengen area during any six-month period, you must wait another three months before you can apply to enter the Schengen area again without a visa. If you do not meet these conditions, or plan to stay in the Schengen area longer than three months, contact the embassy of the country where you plan to spend the majority of your time to apply for a visa.
