EU AND NON-EU STUDENTS
Students from Schengen countries and citizens of countries not subject to Visa requirements for short-term stay who wish to remain for no more than 90 days are not required to obtain a Visa. However, students from other countries must obtain an entry Visa for stays of up to 90 days.
Visas are issued by Italian Embassies and consulates in the state of origin or permanent residence of foreigners. Foreign-students who are already in Italy can not be issued a Visa nor can they obtain a Visa extension.
ITALIAN TAX CODE CARD
The Italian Tax Code is a card similar to the Social Security Number of other Countries. It’s a mandatory document needed to fill a contract, to open a bank account or to activate a new telephone number. Once the incoming student has completed the registration procedures at Abadir Academy International Office, he has to go to the Income Revenue Authority to ask for a free Italian Fiscal Code Card.
The tax code is issued immediately and free of charge. It is necessary to complete the AA4/8 form. EU/EEA citizens must bring a valid passport or another form of ID; non EU/EEA citizens must bring the passport with a valid visa (if requested) and a copy of it (clearly showing personal data and visa) and/ or the residence permit.
Alternatively, it is possible to apply for the tax code to the Italian consular authorities in the country of residence. For further information, please visit the Agenzia delle Entrate website.
Health Insurance | EU citizens can benefit from healthcare only if they are in possession of the European Health Insurance Card. Non-EU students must obtain private health insurance. If health insurance is purchased in the country of origin before departure, it must be brought to the Embassy of Italy along with the documents needed to obtain a visa and must be stamped to certify validity. Without this stamp from the Embassy, once in Italy, the purchase of new insurance may be necessary as foreign insurance that is not validated by the Embassy can not be accepted as a means of obtaining a residence permit.
Accident Insurance | Abadir Academy provides liability insurance to all traveling students and is limited to educational /training activities.
