Non-EU citizens - renewal of the residence permit

If you are a non-EU citizen you can renew your residence permit from 30 days before its expiration date. It is strongly recommended to apply for the renewal before the deadline.

In order to collect the kit for the application submission and for support in filling out the application form, you can go to box n. 12 at the Department of International Affairs, where cultural mediators will assist you.

The service is upon appointment and it is free of charge.  You can also receive assistance at any Patronato office application/pdf (24.00 kB)

After filling out the application form with the help of the mediators, the application always has to be handed in at any post office where there is a “Sportello Amico” counter, within maximum 2/3 days.

The postal expenses amount to € 30,00. You will have to pay again the paying slip of € 70,46 for the issuing of the residence permit electronic card (the paying in slip is given by the cultural mediators at box n.11-12);

The Poste Italiane employer will check your passport (remember not to seal the envelope of the kit!) and will gives you a new receipt, with a new USER ID and PASSWORD , that you always have to bring with you, until you receive your electronic residence permit.

You will be given again an appointment for going to the Immigration Office for being fingerprinted.

REMEMBER THAT IT IS MANDATORY TO GO AND GET FINGERPRINTED ON THE DAY AND AT THE TIME INDICATED IN THE APPOINTMENT SHEET GIVEN BY POST OFFICE.

Please consider that after the fingerprints appointment it takes some months to collect the residence permit card at the Immigration Office.
