Residency again!
« on: March 14, 2017, 07:03:00 PM »
Hi all, first post so go easy.

I bought a house a year ago, and am now looking to apply for residence.

I found this: http://www.portaleimmigrazione.it/ImmigrazioneNet/Nuova_Procedura_en.aspx which seems to suggest you can do this at the post office.

But have seen other pages which say it must be done at the Questura/Anagrafe/Commune

Does anyone know what the current procedure is?

Thanks

Hello, and welcome.

I don't want to "drop them in it", but the diggers seem to be the 'oracle' on this matter.  They post regularly so I guess they'll be along shortly with lots of questions, because, as always in Italy, it all depends....

The procedure for residency application varies depending on where you come from.

If you are from Europe (which at the moment includes the UK) it is much simpler. If you are 'extracommunitari', which is from anywhere else in the world not in the EC (EU), it's more time consuming and there are different rules.

Personally I would first pay a visit to your commune and ask them what you need for residency as they will be the people granting you it. The various info on the internet and even the British Embassy can tell you different things you need, but they are not the ones issuing you residency it is the Commune.

Try and get a good relationship going with the person at the commune. The lady at our local commune was very helpful and obliging, but she wouldn't shift a millimetre on what we had to provide. Once we got everything, she blew the dust off her stamps and ink pad and we got it.  :)

Good luck

That was my experience with Vasto comune also.

The documents you will need will be different for if you are from another EU country or from outside Europe. Bearing Brexit in mind, you may find your comune will have even less idea than usual as to what they require.

Best advice is to go and ask them ASAP, before it all changes.

Basic documents will be passport, codice fiscale, proof of house ownership, bank balance and health card. But each comune does things differently.

Also bear in mind that once resident you are required to make yearly tax returns in Italy.

 I can see why you said “go easy” … So first off, welcome!
Very interesting link to a very confusing site, first thing that struck me was that it looked like an old site just by its style, certainly one I’ve can’t recall ever seen before. I found it a bit annoying the its lack of a date or indication on any page as to when this came about. However by chance clicking on the Italian version of the “Home” it gives a different start paragraph with a full date that indicates 2012… So I had a look at the Poste site to see if this tie up was actually there and sure enough there ares some procedures of this nature. To cut a long story short, this page here, if you expand “Per i cittadini UE”, kind of confirms what those here have already said and what this “oracle” (aka web snooper) thought was still the case for EU citizens.
As an aside I would love to know if the procedures work for those who are not from the EU as it could well be easier and a lot quicker than dealing with some comune.
Best of luck!

Levi is that the case for retirees too, or just if you're working?

Everyone I think. I'm not employed and I certainly have to do it. I've even been investigated by the Guardia Di Finanzia, fined a percentage of nothing for not paying something I didn't owe and then fined for not paying the zero fine because it's not possible to pay a zero fine!

You may have nothing to pay but they still want a tax return every year.

I went to see a commercialista for advice about tax. Dave and I are early retirees, have never worked in Italy, only own 1 house and pay tax directly in the UK on pensions and savings. The commercialista advised that we do not even have to complete a tax return form here as there is no point. Of course this will all no doubt change once the UK leaves Europe! I do keep receipts and have a copy of the email from the commercialista advising re the tax return just in case. If our house was divided and part could be rented out, that would be a different scenario too.
