Information added to the ‘Visas and residency’ section on the impact of Covid-19 measures on local residency processes in Italy.
Visas and residency
Check the entry requirements for Italy.
If you are resident in Italy before the transition period ends on 31 December 2020, you will be able to stay.
You must register as an Italian resident (in Italian) if you want to stay in Italy for more than 3 months. You will get one of the following from the local town hall or comune:
- an attestazione di regolarità di soggiorno
- a certificato di residenza
- attestazione di iscrizione anagrafica or attestazione di soggiorno permanente (if resident for 5 years or more)
Due to the impact of Covid-19 you should contact your local comune to see if you can register as a resident during lockdown. Some comuni are only providing essential services.
If you have already registered as a resident and have a residency document, you are entitled to apply for a new attestazione from your local comune. This new document will be proof of your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement. However, the Italian government is advising that, due to the impact of the Covid-19 and the current lockdown measures, you should not try to obtain the new document for the time being. You should wait until lockdown has ended.
Read the Italian Ministry of Interior’s circular on residency registration (in Italian). If there are changes to residency registration processes, we will update this guidance as soon as information is available.
