I signed up for the website workaway and found this amazing opportunity to live on an Italian vineyard and work there. They will give me room and board and pay 200 Euros per week. I am not doing this for the money, I want the experience. What type of visa will I need and how do I proceed to get it? Do I get it before I leave? That would mean a trip to San Francisco or would I get it after I arrive? I will have travel health insurance and can show that I can support myself and do not need any support from the Italian government.
I have family in Germany and my father was born in Berlin— his mother was American and her husband, my grandfather was German. Would it be easier to get a work visa in Germany and then work in Italy as from what I read I think it doesn’t matter what European country to get it in as they all share the same agreement???
Any information would be helpful!!
