Residence Permit (only for non-EU students)

No later than 8 days after arriving in Italy, non-EU students must apply for a residence permit for study reasons at the local Police Headquarters. The application can also be submitted at the Post Office, by filling out the relative application forms. Several agencies and qualified charitable institutions may also provide assistance with regard to the submission of the forms.

Upon application, the student shall be identified and asked to pay a fee for the residence permit issuing procedure, which amounts to a total of approximately 107.50 Euros.

The student shall be informed on places available on the relevant course as well as other  deadlines to be met for checks and assessments to be carried out in person at the Police Headquarters. After having submitted the application, the student shall be given a receipt which is deemed valid until the official residence permit is issued. This permit shall be proof of the student's regular permanence in Italy.
