About

• applicants with high self-sustaining incomes and financial assets who have a real necessity to stably residing in Italy and who can demonstrate a steady and adequate income (not from subordinate work) and other financial resources;

• applicants who were born as Italian citizens and renounced their Italian citizenship to become U.S. citizens before 1992.

Residency visa can be also issued to dependent spouse and minor children and dependent children over 18 years old living with their parents, assuming that the applicant can demonstrate adequate financial assets to support them.
