Non-EU/EEA students who stay in Italy for MORE than 3 months must register within 8 days of arrival with the local Police authorities by requesting a “Permit of Stay”.
The permit of stay is granted according to the reason indicated in your visa (eg. FOR STUDY/TRAINING PURPOSES). The permit kit is requested at the Post Offices indicated below, and must be returned there with the due supporting documentation within 8 days of arrival. The permit of stay is issued by the Central Police Station (Questura) within 45 days of your request and entitles you to live temporarily in Italy. You will be invited to the Questura for finger-printing before the permit is issued.
If you have problems with the application form for your permit of stay, there is a network of free advice centres in Udine which the ISS can put you in contact with to provide further support. These offices are referred to as the “CAF” (Centro Assistenza Fiscale – Fiscal Advice Centres) or “PATRONATI”. The ‘Patronato’ can provide information about the required documentation and practical assistance in filling out the form. Furthermore if you need to convert your permit from one type to another, for example from a 'study' to a 'work' permit, they are also able to provide advice on the procedure to follow. If you have been in Italy for more than five years, they can help you with your permanent residency permit request.
Whilst you are waiting for your permit of stay (PdS) you may travel in and out of Italy with the post office receipt.
