Exciting news for anyone who is dreaming of living in Italy…the Italian government has now approved a one-year Digital Nomad Visa for skilled workers from around the world to live in Italy and work remotely. This is a brand new visa and it is difficult to get detailed information about how it will work. Luckily, we have a great resource in attorney Nick Metta, who practices in both the U.S. and Italy, who will be joining us to discuss the step-by-step process of applying for this visa.

Here is what you will learn:

  • What the qualifications are for the Digital Nomad visa including the definition of “skilled,” minimum income. etc.
  • What are some of the other requirements including providing health insurance
  • How to get an appointment at your local consulate (there are some tips and tricks)
  • How long the process should take
  • How to be prepared for your consular appointment
  • What you need to know about obtaining residency and finding a rental in Italy
  • How the visa may or may not be converted into a longer-stay visa
  • What are the tax implications of living in Italy under this visa (lucky for us, Nick has a Phd in taxation law)
  • What are the alternatives to the Digital Nomad Visa that might make sense in your particular situation, including citizenship jure sanguinis, a student visa (which allows 20 hours per week of work), an elective residency visa (which doesn’t allow work) and how to explore these options
  • …and have your questions answered by Nick!

You will receive a link to join us via Zoom LIVE on June 4 at noon ET. If you can’t attend, you will receive a video recording.

Again note that if you are a Dream of Italy member  this workshop is FREE to you, so join today!
