Italy is one of the countries of the so called Schengen Area. Participants are requested to familiarize themselves with their own applicable visa requirements well in advance of the Conference. Present worldwide security regulations result in generally in more stringent visa requirements and associated visa processing time. All important information and application for visa forms can be found on the dedicated webpage of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, where a guided procedure will help you decide if you need to apply for a visa based on your nationality, country of residence, reasons for your visit and length of stay.
If you need a visa for Italy, you will be provided with all the information and forms needed to submit your application. In the VISA application process for IAPCO2021, we strongly suggest to indicate culture, sports, tourism as reason for your visit.
IAPCO 2021 organizers will not intervene with Embassies or Consulates on behalf of any participant and her/his possible accompanying persons.
Rome operates in CET (Central European Time) UTC/GMT +1 hour.
February is one of the coldest months of the year to visit Rome but it’s a super time to see the city’s many attractions as the crowds of tourists will be much smaller than usual. Though, the average temperatures in February hover around 9°C (=47°F).
Electricity in Italy conforms to the European standard of 220V to 230V, with a frequency of 50Hz. Wall outlets typically accommodate plugs with two or three round pins (the latter grounded, the former not).
Rome provides 410 hubs and meeting rooms, seats for 62.000 delegates, 1.981 hotels and 160.985 beds.
If you’re so lucky to have some free or additional time to enjoy the Eternal City and its tasty food, then take notes about the Amatriciana and Carbonara pasta, Artichokes “Alla Romana” and Porchetta cooked ham. These are just some of the most typical dishes to try at least once!
