What is an EU Certificate or Anagragic Registration?
An Anagrafic Register certificate is a mandatory registration for all European citizens who wish to live in Italy for more than three months or 90 days.
The certificate is issued by the municipality where they live in Italy and gives the holder the right to legally reside in Italy. It is only available to citizens of the EU, European Economic Area and Switzerland.
This document includes their name, address and nationality and must be renewed annually. After five years the holder can request permanent residence in Italy.
The process does not require a police clearance certificate or a medical certificate.
If you are an EU citizen and plan to stay in Italy for more than 90 days, you must register with the Italian municipality of your place of residence.
You must have a valid ID card or a Passport that shows:
-You have been hired by an Italian company or you have permission to establish yourself as an autonomous professional or a freelancer.
-You are a student or you are doing an Internship that will last more than 180 days.
-You have any other lawful motive to live in Italy and you have the sufficient economic means to support your lifestyle.
You must make an appointment with the Italian municipality and provide them with all the required documentation to register yourself as a resident in the country.
To renew your Registration you will have to demonstrate that you still fulfil the same requirements of when you first applied. You must do this after one year of living in the country.
- Gather the correct documentation
- Complete a Declaration of Presence at an Italian Police Station
- Schedule an appointment at the Town Hall of your city of residence
- Register with a public official from the municipality
What Documents Do I Need?
You will always need a valid travel document, such as an EU ID or Passport, and proof that you meet the requirements.
For example, if you don’t have a job and you are not a student, you must provide valid health insurance or a form from your country of origin requesting your right to healthcare in Italy.
You will also need to proof that you have suitable accommodation, such as an lease agreement, owned property or a hospitality declaration, in Italy.
What Else Do I Need to Know?
Not all public officers are experienced at performing this procedure, so they sometimes request documents that are not mandatory. That’s why we recommend having the support of a Lawyer when dealing with Italian public administration.
