Study Permit Requirements

Before planning your journey, it’s crucial to know if you meet the study permit requirements. Here’s what you need to get started:
  • You must have a letter of acceptance from an accredited Italian school, university, or institution;
  • Proof that you can support yourself financially during your stay in Italy;
  • Coverage for medical expenses during your stay;
  • Documentation showing you have a place to stay in Italy;
  • A valid passport and recent passport-sized photos.

Residence Permit For Study Purposes In 5 Steps

  1. Get a study visa in your country of origin. The first step is to examine the documents and study permit requirements to be able to apply for a residence permit for study purposes once you arrive in Italy. This is possible only if the country of origin has issued the necessary documentation for arrival in Italy, i.e. a visa.
  2. Travel to Italy. Once landed, the non-EU student has eight days available to apply for a residence permit with study motivation.
  3. Application for the permit. The request is submitted by sending the postal kit to the Italian post office. In addition to the yellow stripe form, for non-EU citizens it is necessary to attach more documents, such as the health coverage for the stay in Italy and a copy of the passport.
  4. Don’t miss the appointment with the police headquarters. Once the postal kit has been forwarded, duly completed and with the required attachments, a receipt will be issued with administrative value. This receipt regularizes the non-EU citizen up to the time of the appointment at the police headquarters for the photodactyloscopic surveys. During your interview, be prepared to answer questions about your stay.
  5. Issue of the permit. After weeks, and in some cases months, following the appointment at the Questura, the residence permit card will be delivered to the personal address.
Now you just have to enjoy your experience of studying in Italy!

Can The Study Permit Extension Be Refused?

Yes, a study permit extension can be refused if you fail to meet the necessary criteria, such as insufficient academic progress or lack of financial means. Always ensure you have all required documents and meet the conditions for extension.

Is A Student Visa A Residence Permit?

No, a student visa allows you to enter Italy, but you must apply for a residence permit within eight days of your arrival to legally reside in the country.
