Residence permit for EU students

If you are a citizen of Europe or of Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Switzerland, it is not necessary to apply for a residence permit. However, to reside in Italy for a period exceeding three months, it is necessary to register with the registry office of the municipality of residence, choosing one of the following methods:

A. Students who do not intend to move their residence to Italy:

To obtain a temporary residence in Italy, you must go directly to the registry office of your choice by presenting the following documents:

  • copy and original of the valid passport/identity card;
  • copy and original of the tax code;
  • copy of the certificate of enrollment in the course of study, in Italian;
  • copy and original European health card (EHIC) of the current state of belonging;
  • proof of sufficient economic resources (minimum € 5,825) provided through the Euro1 form (fill in point “” B “” only if there are dependent family members). On the form, in the part dedicated to personal data, indicate the place of residence (referring to your country of residence) and the domicile address in Milan.

Registration in the temporary registry is valid for one year from the day of issue.

Residence permit for non-EU students

If you are a non-EU citizen within 8 working days of your arrival in Italy you will have to start the procedure for issuing the residence permit. This procedure requires the compilation of a kit that you can find yourself at the post offices at the “Sportello Amico”.

The Kit must be completed and accompanied by copies of the following documents:

  • copy of the visa and passport page with personal data;
  • copy of the health insurance payment slip; in the case of insurance purchased abroad, this must be validated by the Italian embassy of your country and translated into Italian (if it was not issued in English);
  • copy of the certification certifying the course of study to be followed, endorsed by the Italian Diplomatic / Consular Representation upon issuing the entry visa.

The updated list of required documents is available on the Immigration Portal.

At the post office, you will be given a receipt certifying your application for a residence permit. You can check the status of your request on the Police website or on the immigration portal. You will also be notified via SMS about the day, time, and place of the withdrawal of your residence permit. International students with a regular residence permit are authorized to work for a maximum of 20 hours per week and 1,040 hours per year.
