Re: What is the best time to travel to Italy

Does her temporary L permit have a validity date on it? Will it be still valid upon your return from Italy?
As for shengen visa, both of you will be required to get it. The italian embassy will decide whether or not to greant the visas.

Thank you..!! It seems after hearing from you that September indeed is the perfect time.

I have couple of more problems. Would love to hear your insights incase if you are aware.

1. We (me and my wife) are Indian citizens. We are here on L-Permit. Since, my wife just came to Switzerland, she still not holds the permanent L-Card (has the temporary copy and would take 1 more month to recieve the permenant). Thus, can I apply for Schengen visa for both of us..?? Is it possible to apply with a temporary L-card or does she requires to take a re-enty visa to switzerland.

2. How long does the Italian embassy generally take to issue the Visa. I tried calling them, but need to keep down the phone as I do not understand Italiano. They do not reply to mails

Any ideas..??
