Hello everyone. Does anyone know how long an Australian citizen with a visa for the UK can stay in Italy without papers? Can they leave the country and come back? What's required in order to get the papers? Thanks.
You can stay in Italy up to three months. I am an Australian citizen and I had UK residency also. You basically can not have both (ie UK and Italy) so once you finally get Italian residency you have to revoke the UK residency. (they did this at the airport on one of my flights back by drawing on it and making it invalid.
As for what is involved in getting Italy residency....I don't know your situation but be warned it is an absolute mess and heartache to get it here in Florence!
