D-VISA FOR EXTRA EU SEAFARERS: SOME USEFUL CLARIFICATIONS

All what you need to know about how to require a D- Visa or long term visa for extra Eu seafarers End of last year, we shared with all of you the important goal achieved by our partner Marine Shore Assistance who obtained the first 365 days visa permit for one of their clients, in Zagabria. Click here to read the previous article . From that moment, we have received a numerous amount of emails requiring clarifications and support in order to obtain the D- Visa, which as we knew, is making a huge difference for many yacht crews out there. In fact, this permit solved a huge problem faced in the past, when yacht crews were refused to get a stamp out on their passport in several Italian ports, unless flying out of the country or moving out of the Schengen area or moving out of European waters. Until that moment crews were forced often to use up their 90-day Schengen allowance when stepping on a yacht sailing in Italian waters. Italy is now giving to the yacht crews working on yachts based in Italy a real, clear and legal solution in order to stay legally in Italy for a long term. The procedure has now been officially transmitted to all Italian embassies and consulates worldwide and, we are happy, after managing to get various D- Visas, to come back here answering many doubts expressed by many.
