– For the application of individual foreign nationals without dependent family members in Italy, the income must not be less than the annual amount of the social allowance.
– The residence permit may also be requested by the spouse and dependent minor children of the foreign national applying for the EU long-term residence permit. In this case, the foreign national must demonstrate sufficient income for their own support and that of their family members. -The spouse and dependent minor children over the age of fourteen who live with the foreign national applying for the residence permit must fill out their own Form 1 (or Form 2 if they have their own individual income).
– In cases where the legal system does not require the submission of an income tax return (e.g., domestic workers), income may be demonstrated with other objective documentation (payroll, INPS contributions).
– The EU long-term residence permit serves as a personal identification document for a maximum of five years from the date of issuance or renewal. Renewal is performed at the request of the interested party, along with new photographs.
