Phase 3: renewing your investor residence permit

Phase 3: renewing your investor residence permit 

If you maintain your investment or donation throughout the 2 years of validity of your residence permit you are allowed to ask for a 3-year renewal, by applying at least 60 days before the expiry date of your residence permit. In order to apply, you need a new Nulla Osta from the IV4I Committee.  


  1. Upload a proof of maintenance of the investment or donation (see policy guidance for details).
  2. Download the final declaration, validate it by electronic signature, and upload it to the portal.


The Committee will evaluate the documentation. There are three possible scenarios:

  1. Approval: a “Nulla Osta” will be released and made available for download on your personal page.
  2. Request of integration the Committee may ask you to provide further information. You will have 30 days to do so. In the meantime the evaluation is suspended.
  3. Reasoned rejection: you will not be able to apply for a renewal of your residence permit. If you wish, you are allowed apply for a new investor visa.

If you maintain your original investment or donation for 5 years, you may request long term residence card.
