Dyslexia and Exemption from the Italian language test required for the EU residence permit

Jan 13, 2023

Dyslexia, diagnosed as a severe limitation to the ability to learn, is one of the causes of exemption from taking the Italian language knowledge test required for the issue of a long-term resident’s permit.

The legislation (cf. art. 1, par. 3, lett. b, decree of the Ministry of the Interior of 4 June 2010) excludes from the obligation to demonstrate knowledge of the Italian language those suffering from pathologies that limit language learning, and dyslexia is considered in the medical literature as a specific learning disorder.

Interpreting this principle by analogy, we believe that an applicant for Italian citizenship by marriage or residence, if diagnosed with dyslexia, is also exempt from demonstrating knowledge of the Italian language.
