Brexit - latest from Italian Government
« on: March 28, 2019, 06:44:08 PM »
Italian government?s March 2019 emergency decree on the UK leaving the EU without a deal
On the 25th March the Italian government issued a Decree outlining emergency measures which would be implemented if the UK leaves the EU without a deal. Articles 14, 15 and 17 of the Decree refer to the future rights of UK nationals living in Italy.

You are not currently required to obtain a new non-EU residency permit. However, if the UK leaves the EU without a deal, UK nationals resident in Italy should obtain a new non-EU residence permit before 31 December 2020. If you have lived in Italy for 5 years or more, you will be eligible for a permanent residence permit. If you have been living in Italy for less than 5 years you will be eligible for a temporary permit. Temporary resident permits will be valid for 5 years. Both types of residence permits will protect your rights including access to healthcare, right to work and access to social benefits. UK nationals will need to attend their local police station in person to obtain the new residence permit before December 2020. Your current EU residency certificate (either temporary or permanent) will remain valid until you have obtained your new one.

The Decree also confirms that the Italian government is committed to providing healthcare for S1 and S2 holders until 31 December 2020 for those who have previously paid into 2 systems before the UK leaves the EU.

If you are a UK national applying for Italian citizenship and you have the required 4 years residency in Italy before the date of the UK leaving the EU, your Italian citizenship application will be considered on the basis of EU nationality until the 31 December 2020.

That?s nice to know, thanks.

Amazed that the Italian government is clear, the EU Parliament is clear, just the UK flapping about like headless chickens and this is supposedly what they want!
