If the expire date is not 31st December 2017, please remember that you have to go again to the Local Health Board with your valid Italian stay permit and they will extend your health insurance. If your health insurance expires after six months and you haven’t received your stay permit during this period of time, you have to go again to the Local Health Board and they will extend your health insurance for three more months.

TRAVELLING FOR TOURISM

Please be informed that once your visa/stay permit has expired, you are not allowed to travel through Italy and/or in the Schengen area. This applies even if your citizenship allows you to travel for tourism without a visa.

APPOINTMENT FOR STAY PERMIT RENEWAL IN TRENTO

Please be informed that the Post Office in Trento is scheduling appointments at Questura (Immigration Office) about 1.5 months after postage of the stay permit renewal application. Please plan your renewal procedure accordingly.

UPDATE FROM THE QUESTURA

We inform all applicants who paid more for the stay permit application before the price was reduced will not be reimbursed. This is the official and final communication from the Questura regarding this matter.
We inform all students that when they go to the Immigration Office to collect their stay permit they HAVE TO CHECK carefully what is written in the stay permit before taking it and before leaving the Office. If there is something wrong on the stay permit (e.g. surname, date of birth, expiry date) the Officer must be informed immediately! Complaints are accepted only if done immediately before collecting the stay permit.
