(Article 27 ter of Legislative Decree No. 286/98 and subsequent amendments)

  1. Individuals seeking to stay in Italy for research purposes are eligible for this residence permit. The application must include the following:
  2. Completed and signed application by the applicant (Forms 1 and 2).
  3. Photocopy of the entire passport or another equivalent document (see table No. 4).
  4. Photocopy of the hosting agreement signed with the research institute.
  5. For the issuance of the residence permit, Forms 1 and 2 will be completed at the Immigration Office that granted the entry clearance.

– In case of an extension of the research program, the researcher’s residence permit will be renewed for a duration equal to the extension, provided the hosting agreement is also renewed.
– This procedure also applies to researchers who are already legally residing in Italy for other reasons. In such cases, the researcher is issued the relevant residence permit without requiring a visa, and there is no need for the actual residence abroad for the issuance of the entry clearance, which will be processed at the relevant Immigration Office of the Prefecture-UTG.
