Features of obtaining a residence permit in Italy

Italy is one of the most popular countries in the world for the acquisition of real estate, where almost any region is in demand not only among local buyers, but also foreign investors who invest not only for the purpose of subsequent earnings, but simply move to the country for permanent residence.
Owning a property in Italy cannot be a sufficient basis for obtaining a residence permit or at least a long-term visa. A foreign owner of real estate in the country can only rely on a familiar “Sc” type “C” visa, which gives the right to single or multiple entry into the country for up to 90 days within six months. In this case, the consulate will need to submit a document confirming the ownership of real estate in Italy. At the discretion of the consulate, such a “C” multivisa, under similar conditions, may be issued for longer periods – from one to five years.

After that, a foreigner enters Italy and submits documents for a residence permit to the local police department. Usually the immigration process in obtaining residence permits and permanent residence lasts about 4-6 months and consists of several stages – both in Italy and in the country of residence.
