Immigration Law in Italy – Visas and Permits

An individual?
Italy is a “dream country” for many. If you contemplate moving to Italy, our law firm is uniquely prepared to approach all your immigration-related questions with efficiency and great commitment.

A business entity?
Our Italian and foreign-qualified lawyers have also built significant experience in assisting Italian and foreign-based businesses by addressing their human resources needs.

Due to a multi-level regulatory system (Italian, European and International) that is applicable to persons not holding an Italian passport, visa and immigration-related issues are rather complex. However, your nationality is not the only factor that comes into play when determining the type of visa/permit that best matches your needs. Each case is unique with specific conditions and documentation requirements.

To begin your journey to Italy, we must determine the best possible solution. We base our immigration legal advice on your personal and professional status, as well as on your medium and long-term goals for life and career, or even retirement, in Italy.

Italian immigration law provides several potential visa options, however, not all them apply to a given applicant. The most commonly used visas/permits are the following:

  • Elective Residency Visa
  • Student VISA (for a stay longer than 3 months)
  • Asylum Visa
  • Exclusive Custody Permit
  • Family Reunification Visa
  • Self-employment Work Permit
  • Employee Work Permit
  • Religious Visa
  • Visa for Scientific Research and
  • Visa for Stateless Persons

Our working languages in the area of Immigration Law are: Italian, English, German, Russian, Spanish and Greek.

Buzz topic: Elective Residency in Italy

This type of visa allows persons that generate income generated in their country of residence to relocate to Italy. This is usually the case with persons that have decided to retire.

Under Italian Law (Decreto Legislativo n° 286/1998) a non-European citizen (i.e., the visa applicant) is requested to provide evidence that he/she relies on an income that allows him to reside in Italy without working (the amount of this income is determined by the Italian Consulate located in the State where the applicant originally comes from). This varies greatly from State to State.

These funds must not be generated through employment. Pension is a good example of the type of funds that would make an individual eligible for an elective residency visa. Other types of income include income generated through lease agreements and dividends (unless the applicant is employed by the company or holds the office of CEO/Manager Director).

The steps that we must take in order to obtain an Elective Residency visa in Italy are the following:

  1. File a form to the Italian Consulate of the State of origin and all necessary accompanying documentation such as a copy of the applicant’s passport, a document providing evidence that the applicant generates the income required to live in Italy and a document providing proof that the applicant has secured accommodation in Italy (i.e., a real-estate purchase contract or a lease).
  2. If the submitted documents comply with requirements set by the applicable regulations, the Italian Consulate will provide the applicant with an “entry visa” that allows him to enter Italy and apply for the Elective Residency visa.
  3. The application for the Elective Residency Visa must be filed within 90 days from the issuance of the entry visa. This application is submitted to a Police Department called “Questura” (the competent Questura is located at the Italian city where the applicant has decided to take up the Elective Residency).

    Hello,
    I have been living in Italy for about 16 years and me and my family have Carta di Soggiorno which is permanent. But now the old A4 paper Carta di soggiorno is replaced by a computerized card. So what’s the procedure to replace my old carta di soggiorno with the new one ?

    What documents I need for this and where do I have to go ?

    Please help me in this case.

    Thanks.

  30. Matthew Staley says:

    Hello,
    I am a non-EU citizen (American), moving with my British wife and baby, from the United Kingdom to Rome Italy. I have lived in the UK for the past 4 and a half years, and my wife and I have been married for almost 4 years. We moved 3 weeks ago to Rome and have registered our presence at the Questura, have obtained 3 codice fiscale codes, and my wife and baby just got reciept of application for residence certificate at the local Anagrafe. I need to apply for Carta di Soggiorno as a non-EU spouse of EU national, as having just moved from another EU country, UK. I want to ensure that I properly apply for the Carta di Soggiorno to be issued to me for 5 years residence as the spouse of EU national resident. I want assistance to make sure I fill in the Carta di Soggiorno properly as spouse of EU National. My wife and baby have registered change of residence at the Anagrafe based on being self-sufficient with Comprehensive health insurance cover. The europa.eu website and the poliziadiitalia website both indicate that to apply for EC Long-Term Residence Permit (carta di soggiorno) for foreign family members of EU citizens, I should only be required to present my passport, marriage certificate(which is US-marriage certificate), 4 passport-sized photos, and the EU citizen’s receipt of application for registration with the Anagrafe. Do you have the knowledge and experience to help me ensure I receive 5 year Carti di soggiorno for accompanying my EU-national spouse and baby, moving from another EU country? Also if you could give me an idea of how much the cost would be.
    Thank you,
    Matthew

  53. Alida Bowden says:

    Salve!
    I’m a 66 years of age divorced American lady. I’m retired and would like to relocate to Italy. I have a friend in Milan who is a few years older than me, and he has kindly offered to let me live in one of his condo apartments free of charge. I receive a rather modest fixed amount of money from my Social Security Retirement Benefits every month. I live on a tight budget, but I am able to manage. I took a trip to Italy in 2011 and I loved it there and didn’t want to leave, but unfortunately I had to return to the USA much to my dismay. While I was in Italy I stayed with friends. In the past I have taken a few elementary and lower intermediate level courses in Italian on the Internet and at local community colleges. My reading and oral comprehension of Italian is not bad, but I still have a difficult time with conversational Italian. Anyway, I have been dreaming of living in Italy for the past many years, and I think I would like to make Italy my home for the remainder of my life. What are the necessary steps that I must take in order to make this dream a reality? Do I need a sponsor? I would appreciate any advice you could give me. La ringrazio anticipatamente.

    Dear Sir

    1- My name is Mohammed Al-obaidi , an Iraqi nationality born 17\5\1963 I hold Iraqi passport No:A10640378 . I work in the general trading and constructions
    I have a residence in tow countries (Jordan and Morocco )
    A member in the Federation of Arab businessmen based in Amman – Jordan
    A member in the Iraqi businessmen Association based in Amman – Jordan
    2- I applied with my wife Mrs. Sahar Al-mahdawi to the Italian embassy in Amman for a tourist schengen visa , and I received ten days later that my wife application was accepted but mine was refused and the reason gave my was that a schengen members state considered me a (threat to public safety ) and I was informed that I can appeal the decision through an Italian lawyer within 60 days .
    I wish to make the following comments:
    1- I traveled to Europe \ UK and Canada many times before and I never faced a similar situation .
    2- On 13th October 2015 while entering Germany \ Frankfurt and following a request by the immigration officer for approve of my documents travel , he stamped my passport to enter to Frankfurt but he then made a racist comment which lead to an exchange between me and him . then he asked me to go to the immigration office and hold my passport and all the documents , and he told me laterally ( I accuse you of getting the visa unlawfully through the French embassy )
    He said that I had to choose between:
    a- refuse starting criminal investigation and deporting me back to Amman and put me in the black list
    b- accept his accusation and go through a minor investigation, and allowed to back to Amman and apply again for a visa , I accept this choice and I explain in my statement everything but he still insisted I most travel to France not to Germany and then he deport me to Amman not to Marrakech which was my initial point of traveling.
    After arriving in Amman I discovered he had stamped my visa as ( Annulliert ) realized that the officer was adamant to hurt me and cause a big problem during any future shcengen visa application .
    Dear Sir
    I hope you can assist me with my appeal of the unfair decision.
    Kindly advise me with if you were welling to represent me and advise me the cost.
    I will send you all the documents in case I got your e-mail.

    Best Regards

    Mohammed Al-Obaidi
