Visa and Immigration to Italy

Italy is a popular destination for tourists and expatriates alike. If you plan to stay in Italy for more than 90 days, you may need to apply for an Italian residence permit or register your residence in Italy. In the meantime, you can also check whether you meet the requirements for applying for Italian citizenship.

There are different types of visas, including tourist visas, work visas, student visas and family reunion visas, each with specific requirements and application procedures. The Italian government has also implemented the Schengen Agreement, which facilitates travel between Italy and other countries in the Schengen area for short stays.

For those who wish to stay longer or settle permanently, Italy offers various routes to residence permits and citizenship.

Long-term visas (including the Elective Residence Visa or ERV) often require a thorough application process, including proof of sufficient financial means and sometimes language proficiency (A2 or B1 levels).

Italy also has a Golden Visa program that is particularly attractive to investors, offering residence permits to those making substantial investments in Italian assets such as real estate, government bonds or companies.

Additionally, Italy’s immigration system encompasses family reunification policies, asylum procedures, and special programs for entrepreneurs. Understanding the intricacies of these visa and immigration processes is crucial for anyone planning to make Italy their temporary or permanent home.
