Mission and Diplomatic Visa and the Italian Elective Residence Visa

Do you have an Italian mission visa or diplomatic visa?

A recent court decision ( TAR Piemonte, sez. I, 17 July 2023, n. 687) stated that holders of special ID documents issued by the Ministry of foreign affairs (such as accredited Diplomatic Corps and their family members, Consular Corps members, FAO Officials, Staff at Diplomatic Missions, Officials of International Organizations, etc.) can apply for the elective residence permit (permesso di soggiorno per residenza elettiva) in Italy even if they have not obtained the relevant visa. In fact, authorities should only assess whether the applicant has sufficient financial means, regardless of the need for an entry visa.
