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.
