Entry & Exit Requirements:
Americans staying in Italy for more than three months are considered
residents and must obtain a permesso di soggiorno (permit of stay). This includes U.S. citizens who will
work or transact business and persons who want to simply live in Italy. An application "kit" for the
permesso di soggiorno can be requested from one of 14,000 national post offices (Poste Italiane). The kit
must then be returned to one of 5,332 designated Post Office acceptance locations. It is important that
applicants keep a copy of the receipt issued by the post office. Additional information may be obtained
Updated 24 March 2011 Copyright 2011 Atlas International from the Italian immigration website. Within 20 days of receiving the permit to stay in Italy, U.S. citizens
must go to the local Vital Statistics Bureau (Anagrafe of the Comune) to apply for residency. It generally
takes one to two months to receive the certificate of residence (Certificato di Residenza).
Special Circumstances: Strikes and other work stoppages occur frequently in the transportation sector
(national airlines, airports, trains, and bus lines); most are announced in advance and are of short duration.
U.S. citizens driving in Italy are reminded that they must adhere to the local driving laws and
regulations. Vehicle traffic in some historic downtown areas of cities and towns throughout Italy is limited
by a system of permits (called “ZTL” and functioning the same way as an electronic toll system in the
United States might on the freeway). Cameras record the license plates of cars driving in parts of the city
that require a permit. Although most of the automated verification stations are clearly marked, if a driver
passes one it is impossible to know at the time that a violation occurred or has been recorded. Violators
are not pulled over or stopped, and there is no personal contact with a police officer. Whenever possible,
the fines imposed for these violations are forwarded to the driver’s home in the United States to request
payment. Notice from Italian authorities of a violation may take a year or longer to arrive. The fines are
cumulative for each time a driver passes a control point. A similar system of automated traffic control
cameras is in place in many parts of the highway system and is used to ticket speeding violations.
Crime: Italy has a moderate rate of crime. Petty crimes such as pick-pocketing, theft from parked cars,
and purse snatching are serious problems, especially in large cities. Pick-pockets sometimes dress like
businessmen. You should not be lulled into a false sense of security by believing that well-dressed
individuals are not potential pick-pockets or thieves. Most reported thefts occur at crowded tourist sites,
on public buses or trains, or at the major railway stations: Rome's Termini; Milan's Centrale; Florence's
Santa Maria Novella; and Naples' Centrale and Piazza Garibaldi. Thieves are also known to have
impersonated police officers in order to steal. The thief shows you a circular plastic sign with the words
"police" or “international police" and then in perfect English asks to see your identification and your
money. Immediately report such thefts or other crimes to the actual police. Some travelers in Rome,
Florence, and Naples have reported incidents where criminals used drugs to assault or rob them.
Criminals using this tactic “befriend” you at a train station, restaurant, café, or bar, and then offer you a
drink laced with a sleeping drug. When you fall asleep, criminals steal your valuables and may sexually
assault you. Some victims of these assaults in Rome have required hospitalization.
According to Italian Law (Law 80 of May 14, 2005), anyone caught buying counterfeit goods (for
example, DVDs, CDs, watches, purses, bags, belts, sunglasses, etc.) is subject to a fine of no less than
EUR 1,000. Police in major Italian cities enforce this law to varying degrees.
Fumigation of Wood Packing Materials:
As a member of the European Union Italy has requirements in
place regarding ISPM15 for wood packaging material (WPM).
