Moving to Italy – a new start, a career change or simply an adventure? With us you are exactly at the right place for the move into your new life. We want to show you tips and tricks on how best to emigrate to Italy and what you should consider at the beginning.
The most important thing is to make a plan in advance, then you can not forget anything and the move can also be more orderly.
You should think about which moving company you want to hire and how best to contact them to plan everything in advance. Be careful here to get good information about the company, because the price does not always tell everything about the quality. Maybe pay attention to internet reviews, or ask us and our experts will find the right partners for you and take care of the bureaucracy for you. Contact our experts right here.
For this move by moving company, of course, costs occur, this depends on the particular amount of furniture and boxes and the way, the farther the distance between your old location and your new residence, the more you have to pay for the way, of course.
Necessary paper for immigration to Italy
Furthermore, there are important papers that are necessary for entry and stay. For now, you need a passport or identity card to enter the country. After that, you must go to the relevant Residents Registration Office within 20 days. Italy requires a residence permit only from 3 months, you must apply for this at the police headquarters in your Italian place of residence. You will also need a new tax number, which you must request from the tax office. Also a health insurance is very important, here you must either look for a new one or you must prove that you are a member of a private health insurance, which will cover the treatment costs in Italy.
It is also important that you inform yourself in advance about the customs regulations and implement them well, otherwise you will get stressed later at customs because you did something wrong. If you have a pet, you will need an EU pet passport for this pet to be allowed through customs.
Once you have survived your move after a long planning and hopefully stress-free time, you will surely want to get to know some beautiful places in Italy and experience their wonderful, delicious culinary variety. Here, we want to give you a few valuable tips and insiders along the way.
Move to Italy – The sights in your new home country
Sights that you should definitely visit:
- Rome, there you should especially look at the Colosseum.
- Venice, a very special city with a special flair, here you should especially look at the Doge’s Palace and St. Mark’s Square and take a ride on the ship.
- The cathedral in Florence should be seen in any case, it reflects the time of the Renaissance.
- The Leaning Tower of Pisa, probably the most famous tower in the world and it wasn’t even intentional. The tower was still “normal” when it was built, only 12 years later it began to lean noticeably to the side.
- The Sistine Chapel in Rome is part of the Vatican and probably the most significant thing here is the view up to the ceiling, to the work of Michelangelo.
- You can go to Pompeii in Naples if you are interested in history and the ancient world, here you can still see remains of the ancient city.
- Lago di Garda is definitely worth a visit as well, here you can see the small towns around Lake Garda, enjoy the lake and still go to the Garda countryside.
- Milan, a rather modern Italian city and yet it has an old town and a beautiful cathedral, which is the third largest church in the world.
