Phase 2: getting your investor residence permit

Phase 2: getting your investor residence permit

Once you are in Italy with your entry visa, you have 8 days to apply for a 2-year permit of stay. You are required to make your investment or donation within three months from the date of your arrival in Italy in order to get the residence permit. 


You must apply at the local police station (Questura). Do not forget to bring your passport and your entry visa. 

After doing so, log on your personal page on the IV4I portal, and enter:

  1. the date of your arrival in Italy;
  2. the date of your application at the Questura;
  3. the location of the Questura you applied to

Proof of investiment

To prove that you made the investment or donation declared at the time of application:

  1. Upload your proof of investment on this portal (see policy guidance for details), and fill in the other information requested.
  2. Download the final declaration, validate it by electronic signature, and upload it to the system again.


The Committee will evaluate your proof of investment. There are three possible scenarios:

  1. Approval: your residence permit will remain valid, if you have already received it, or will be issued soon if the process is still in progress.
  2. Request for supplementary information:  You will have additional 30 days to do so. However, you will have to demonstrate that the entirety of the investment has taken place within 3 months of your arrival.
  3. Reasoned rejection: your residence permit will be revoked or not released.
