Residency in Italy

A residency in Italy grants you a renewed level of independence, allows to broaden your personal and financial scope of action, and does not require you to permanently stay in the country. You can join the program by investing in pivotal areas for Italian economy and society, thus obtaining a visa that is valid for two years and can be renewed indefinitely for three-year cycles for all foreigners who invest or make a donation in Italy.

The investor visa can only be issued to non-EU citizens with no criminal record and for a single investment in government bonds, in stakes or shares of companies incorporated and operating on the national territory, in philanthropic donations and, most interestingly, in stakes or shares in innovative startups. The investment must be directed to a single one of these entities and remain in place for the entire duration of the visa.

We can support you in seeking investment opportunities in Italian companies and innovative startups, along with full due diligence processes and investment management and control during the holding period.

The startup
visa scheme

This is one of the most innovative residency by investment schemes in Europe, as it provides an interesting and unique option for individuals seeking to establish themselves in a European country. The Italian government grants residency to those who invest a minimum of €250,000 in innovative startups on the national territory; these companies must have as main field of activity the development, production and marketing of innovative goods or services, and must be listed in the public registry for innovative startups. Once obtained, the residency is valid for two years with renewal and, after ten years as a visa holder, you are entitled to apply to the Italian citizenship.
If this is your investment of choice, we will take care of the entire application process and advise you on the most interesting and fruitful startups.

The flat
tax regime

The acquisition of an investor visa in Italy allows you to have access to special tax regime and major fiscal benefits. Of particular relevance the advantageous flat tax for residency holders who permanently move to Italy: these high net worth individuals are reserved a special €100,000 lump sum for 15 years as substitute tax on foreign income. This means that if you are a High-Net-Worth Individual with foreign investments and assets producing passive incomes such as dividends, interests and royalties you could significantly reduce your tax burden. Furthermore, the special tax regime levy inheritance and donation tax on foreign assets.
Along with the Lump Sum Tax regime there are other possibilities for individuals willing to move their residence to the Southern regions of Italy. This could mean a flat tax rate on all foreign incomes of 7 or 10%.

Italian citizenship program

After five years of residency through the Investor Visa for Italy program, you may apply to a permanent residency permit. Also, after ten years of residency, the investors are allowed to apply for Italian citizenship by naturalization. However, EU citizens have the possibility to apply for citizenship after only four years of residency. Of particular relevance is the fact that the Italian government allows dual citizenships.
