Finally I Got My Visa! by Celmatador(m): 2:31pm On Aug 30, 2016
Wow I am xo happy right now. Finally I was able to secure a Schengen visa thru the Italian embassy today.
After trying n failing almost three[3] times, Baba God picked my call. Please I have few questions ; I am a 1st timer n as a jjc, my visa stated it's valid from 28th Aug to 30th September does this mean I have a month visa or will they stamp how long I will stay at the point of entry? Lastly, can any one help me on how to purchase a flight ticket. [sorry for any grammatical errors. I no go school ] Thanks

Congrats! Alitalia flies directly from Lagos to Italy non-stop. I believe they have a ticketing counter at Murtala Mohammed International airport. You can go there and purchase your ticket.

Since your visa is for 1 month, you get to stay for 1 month in Italy but not past September 30th 2016.

congratulations on your visa procurement. the dates on your visa means you have to be in that country before 30th September else the visa will be useless...and lastly, I can be of help concerning the flight ticket. feel free to check my signature

200k is even too cheap. some agent are cruel, they can ask like 500k to 600k.

Re: Finally I Got My Visa! by Castroborn: 11:12pm On Aug 31, 2016
To lay credence to what @chidexSmokey said, the 30th of September means the last date you are allowed to enter the Country.
At the point of entry , the immigration officials will give you a 30 days stay in the country. It means that if you arrive let say 22nd of September, the immigration officer will give you a month from that date. If you have multiple entry visa, you are entitled to visit as much as you want before 30th of September.


This is just to clarify this as I have seen people hastly travel thinking their supposed stay in the foreign land will expire on the date captured.

It is the date of last entry.

Ah.. bros. Take suffery.

You are not employed and neither do you run a business. Meaning you are jobless. And I surmise that you are also unmarried.

And you didn't use an agent!

How did you prove your home tie ? As far as I know, Italian embassy will NEVER grant a tourist/visiting to a jobless applicant. Or na JUJU u you use?

And you said earlier, you are not going to hustle over there. Meaning you are returning to your joblessness in Nigeria.

Bros take am easy.

depends on what you are going for . were are you visiting do you need flight or buses or train. where are you staying, big hotels or hostels, or family friend ? this will all count. you can stay 10 days and have 300 euro, another person may be staying for 3 days and will need to show 1000 euro. Also be smart, open your mind to all questions. I was told once that my BTA WILL NOT BE ENOUGH, I JUST tell the oyinbo that I have my card and I showed him. HE was like angry and i was like undecided THE MAN STAMP ME AND I ENTER EUROPE JEJE.
THIS ONE YOU ARE LOOKING FOR TICKET AGENT, BE CAREFULL. JUST DO THIS THING YOURSELF ONLINE
