If you from the European Union and studying for a period longer than 90 days, you have to iscriversi all’Anagrafe (register yourself at the Registry office) to legally stay in Italy. While it may sound like a hassle, the process is quite easy (or at least, much easier than that for people from outside the EU).
- Print the Registry Request form, here.
- Fill it out (if you can read Italian or Google Translate your way through – otherwise, do what you can and ask for help when you go to the registry office).
- Bring it to one of the local Registry Offices (addresses and hours for Florence, here) with the following:
- The official enrollment letter from your school or university + 1 photocopy
- Proof of sufficient financial resources for your period of stay, which can include but are not limited to: a letter of support from your parents, front/back photocopies of your credit card, and/or photocopies of your bank statement.
- Proof of medical insurance. Bring an original document (like your insurance card) + 1 photocopy. For instructions on how to get additional health coverage once you arrive in Italy, click here.
