Why move to Italy
Italy has been the backdrop to many Hollywood films. The boot-shaped country is a blend of sophistication and class with authentic rustic and uncomplicated charm. Its cities are some of the most recognizable the world has to offer and most have their own style and brand. Rome boasts some of the best preserved historic buildings in Europe, Milan oozes the sophistication, class and elegance that goes hand-in-hand with economic and financial hubs. Away from Italy’s largest cities, there are more intimate places like Florence or Bologna. If bustling cities aren’t for you, then there’s the Amalfi Coast, Sorrento, Taormina and Sardinia.
Italy is a global draw for visitors all year around. People come for what they can see, but they stay for the quality of cuisine and attractive pace of life.
The country has around 50 World Heritage sites, excellent weather all year round, a robust higher education system with leading universities, a low cost of living with affordable produce and excellent public services for universal healthcare and transport. Italy is well-connected to the rest of Europe, so venturing a little further afield is no mean feat.
If you are an EU citizen, then you don’t need to have a Residence Permit when moving to Italy but you have eight days to register with a local police station once arriving in the country.
However, for non-EU nationals, the bar for legal entry is much higher and it’s important to speak with Immigration lawyer who knows and understands Italy to get the right visa for you. Whether you are relocating for work, planning to study or looking to retire, an expert Immigraion lawyer will ensure the investment of time and money is deployed wisely.
Most applicants will need to produce an array of paperwork to justify their desired choice of visa. Our team of Immigration lawyers work closely with Italian Immigration Officials on the finer points. Beyond typical requirements like a valid passport, recent portrait photograph and valid insurance, many ex-pats must show that they have the financial means to support themselves and a valid reason, with supporting evidence, for entering Italy.
Supporting evidence usually covers the follows:
- An employment contract for employees planning to work in Italy for a company
- A valid business license for self-employed and freelance workers
- University enrolment forms or sponsorship for students
- A valid proof of passive income and future payments.
It’s important to work with a lawyer to ensure that applicants present the correct paperwork. For example, if you plan to relocate to italy with your family, you’ll need to have verified copies of their birth certificates and if one parent travels alone with the child, then the parent will need a court document that shows they have consent to travel internationally with the child.
There are also specific requirements each visa, which gives every application it’s own unique flavor and twist. For example:
- All foreigners must register with a local police station within eight days of arrival in Italy if they plan to reside in the country.
- Students must be able to show that they have €450 per month in order to support themselves.
- Startup founders must filly commit €50,00 to comply with the Innovative Startup Visa Program.
With complications like these, it’s easy to become overwhelmed. But for our Immigration lawyers, it’s what motivates them and drives them to prevent ex-pats becoming lost in translation
People are resourceful and have a wealth of information at their fingertips but knowledge must be combined with experience to maximise the chances of success. Immigration law doesn’t fit a template. The law evolves, circumstances change and life happs.
An experienced Immigration lawyer is your guide to a new life in a new country.
- They monitor, track and interpret legal and political changes to the law, whether it’s locally in Italy or in your home country.
- A lawyer understands the landscape and can advise on better, more affordable options for you.
- They have long-lasting relationships with Italian Immigration officials, Embassies and Consulate and can navigate bureaucracy elegantly and swiftly to deliver results.
- Immigration experts are exposed to documentation every day, so preparing paperwork successfully is second-nature to them.
- Sometimes there are interviews and a seasoned Immigration legal expert will prepare you for that meeting with the officials.
