How to get residency in Italy?

Have you moved to Italy and do not know how to obtain residency?

A declaration of changing residence is the procedure necessary to indicate where a citizen intends to move from his previous habitual residence.

To obtain a certificate of residence, a regular application must be submitted to the General Register Office (Ufficio Anagrafe) of the town hall where you intend to reside.

For Italian citizens, an identity card or tax code is required.

For foreign citizens it is necessary to have a valid passport or travel document, and a residency permit, a copy of the tax code, and the driving license (if having).

If the application for residency is also submitted for the family members who move to Italy, the following translated and legalized documents are mandatory: birth certificate, certificates of marriage, divorce, and/or a document certifying the family relationship.

It is necessary to demonstrate the availability of an accommodation, i.e. a copy of the rental or loan for use contract, or the declaration of hospitality.

The owner of the property must sign a consent in which he authorizes the foreigner to take up residence in that address and must attach a copy of the identity document.

If the applicant is the owner of the property, he must attach a copy of the relative title deed.

The current legislation provides that registered foreigners are obliged to renew the declaration of habitual residence at the General Register Office of the Municipality within 60 days of the renewal of the residency permit. To fulfill this requirement, it is sufficient to submit the original and a copy of the renewed permit to the Municipality.

Finally, the applicant must know:

– the personal data of all the family members who move;

– the Municipality or the foreign State of origin;

– the data relating to the driving license and to the vehicles in the name of each component applying for residence;

– the exact address, house number and internal number where the family intends to reside, as well as the square meters of the occupied accommodation, in order to pay the TARI, which is the tax that covers the costs of collecting and disposing of waste in the municipalities.
