Why do you need to obtain a residence permit in Italy? In order to legally stay in the country and use a number of services and opportunities of this country.
Let's figure out what kind of document it is and how it looks.
This is an ordinary plastic card with a chip with data: name with photo, date and place of birth, tax number, date of issue and for how long. If there are children, then they are indicated the same. By the way, a nuance for children: a separate card is issued for minors, and a special residence permit for children is issued for children from 14 to 18 years old.
How to get a residence permit in Italy? It is possible through the post office. To do this, you need to fill out a specific package of documents. It should be noted that each type of residence permit has its own set of documents that are attached to the application.
If you decide to extend the residence permit, you need to make a request 60 days before the expiration date (if it was for a year) or 30 days (if it was issued for more than a year).
It happens that you missed the deadline, then you will need to prove to the Italian authorities the seriousness of the reasons why this happened. But this must be done within 60 days from the date of expiry of the residence permit and from what the situation was.
In the next article I will talk about the requirements imposed by the Italian authorities for the extension of the residence permit.
