Myth: I can get Italian passport through investment
Fact: The Investor visa for Italy program grants a 2 years visa and residence permit to applicants who make significant investments in Italy. However, Italian citizenship can be applied for only after 10 years of legal and uninterrupted residency in the country.
Myth: As I have Italian ancestors, I can get an Italian passport coming to Italy for a few weeks
Fact: It is indeed possible to file the application for Citizenship through Ancestry directly in Italy and the adjudication is much faster, however the applicant must have the intention to establish and maintain residency in the country
Myth: If I divorce during my application to obtain Italian citizenship by marriage, nevertheless I can become Italian
Fact: To obtain Italian citizenship by marriage, you must not divorce or legally separate until the Italian citizenship is granted.
Myth: If I buy a house in Italy I will get a visa
Fact: Italy does not offer a visa through property investment.
Myth: If I set up a company in Italy I will get a visa
Fact: Applicants who wish to establish a company in Italy do not get a visa as a result (there are exceptions for those willing to establish an innovative startup). Only officers of an Italian company active since at least 3 years can apply for a self-employment visa
Myth: There’s a residency program/visa for those who wish to move their fiscal residency to Italy to benefit from the Flat Tax (or Substitute Tax) Regime
Fact: There’s no specific visa for this; however, a recent decree establishes that visa applications filed by who intends to move to Italy to benefit from the favourable tax regime should be treated as a priority
