Extension of validity of residency permits in Italy

In application of the Decree of April 30th, 2021, n. 159 the validity of the residency permits (“Permessi di soggiorno”) expired or expiring after 31/01/2020 has been extended until 31/07/2021.

Please find below are the rules currently in force for the re-entry in Italy of holders of expired residence permits:

  • Return to Italy by direct flight (without stopover). The return to Italy will be allowed without a re-entry visa and/or consular accompanying notes.
  • Return to Italy by flight connections with stopover in Schengen countries. In the case of non direct flights that involve entry in Schengen Area through a Member State other than Italy, the return to the national territory will be allowed also with a re-entry visa that can be issued by the Embassy.
  • Return to Italy by flight connection with stopover in non-Schengen countries. In order to prevent any hurdle during transit through non-Schengen countries, the Embassy may issue, upon request, a consular note.
