What is a Residence Certificate in Italy? 

The residence certificate (certificato di residenza) is a document attesting to the residential status of an individual in Italy containing information including name, surname, date of birth, place of birth, residential address, and the town of residence.

VALIDITY: The Italian Residence Certificate is valid for 6 months.

How to Obtain a Residence Certificate in Italy

Under Italian law, residential records are maintained by the civil registry office (ufficio anagrafe) in the town hall (comune) where the event occurred. There is no central, regional, or provincial office established which keeps such records. When applying for one of these certificates, the applicant must supply all relevant information, and submit the request written in the Italian language.

For legal use or fiscal purposes, a Residence Certificate in the Italian language is usually required to be translated into the language of the destination country. In some countries, such translations should be done by a certified translator who should then swears an oath to attest that the translation is faithfully equivalent to the original text. The sworn translation in the language of the destination country will need to be further legalized (apostille) to be valid abroad.
