Hello People!

Maybe those of you who are in Italy right now with EU citisenzship rights might be able to help me.

I have dual citizenship and Australian and Maltese passports. I know that my Maltese citizenship automatically makes me an EU citizen. I wanted to know is what I really need to do when I arrive in Italy. I know I need a Permesso di Soggiorno but will this be a long-winded process. If I arrive in Italy without an offer of employment will this make the Permesso process difficult. I have been doing a lot of research and I am reading all this conflicting info. Some say that if you arrive in Italy as an EU citizen without a job you can only stay 6 months and you need to prove you have enough funds to support yourself.

I've tried calling the Italian Embassy in Australia and one clerk advised me that I had no right to live in Italy (despite holding a Maltese passport that has embossed on the cover 'European Union')!!!!! Shocked

Carole maybe you could help me on this one - I would be forever grateful !

Hi Sonya,

The very BEST place to find answers to all your questions is, withouit a doubt. Expats in Italy....They are really great over there and friendly too. Just register (free) tell a bit about yourself on the 'Who's Who' forum and ask your questions.....they'll fall over themselves to help you. But with an EU passport things will be MUCH easier for you than those who are 'extra communitari' like Australians, Americans and Canadians....

BTW a little word that you heard about the from "Amici over the Ocean" wouldn't go amiss either.

Find them on

Thank Carol so much for the recommendation and I'm always willing to promote 'Amici' because you really are all friendly!

I'm glad things are a bit clearer now - I can get on with plans!

Grazie mille!

You're more than welcome Sonya.
