Request of Residence permit for study

Once you have obtained your entry visa for study purposes, upon your arrival in Italy,  within 8 days of your arrival in Italy, before enrollment  you must submit the request for a permit of stay for study reasons (University).

The application may be presented through an authorized Post Office in the city where you intend to reside, using the specific application kit (that is to say, an envelope containing the required forms, together with the pertinent instructions), available at the aforementioned post offices. 

After completing and signing the forms, students must go to the post office, with the following documents:

  1. The filled-out forms, inside an open envelope;
  2. A € 16 revenue stamp;
  3. The original passport along with a photocopy of the pages containing their personal data as well as the stamps of entry and exit visas from the country;
  4. A photocopy of their health insurance policy or that of the registration in the Italian Health National System “Servizio Sanitario Nazionale (SSN)”;
  5. Copy of a document proving the availability of sufficient financial means for the duration of the stay in Italy; the same documents used to require a visa or a bank/post account statement can be presented, or an official letter confirming that the scholarship has been awarded, its amount and duration;
  6. Documents proving that the student has a suitable accommodation in Italy.

When submitting the application at the post office, all foreign students are to be identified and will have to pay the fees for the permit.

The post office staff will schedule an appointment on behalf of the applicant at the Police Office in charge of foreign citizens (Ufficio stranieri) for photo-identification purposes. On the day of the appointment applicants will have to submit an enrolment certificate that the student can request, after enrolling, at the Student Office  (Segreteria studenti) of the pertinent degree course.

A copy of the receipt of the issuance of the permit of stay must be submitted when enrolling.

Two months before the expiry date of your Residence permit, you must return to the post office to collect a renewal kit, which must include the documents listed above and a photocopy of the certificate with exams  that the student can request  at the Student Office  (Segreteria studenti) of the pertinent degree course.
