EU Passport holder and working in italy

Hello all-
I'm moving to Italy in a few days and, am an EU passport holder (having always lived in the U.S, however) Anyone know what if any are the requirements for an EU Citizen to work in italy?
looking forward to your words of wisdom!

What country is your passport from ther is to my knowledge no blanket EU passport. Also you will probably need to sign up and get the equivalent of a SS number for work. I did this in Ireland. Not sure what else but maybe do a web search. Good luck on the move.

As a holder of an EU passport, you are entitled to live and work in Italy, but the Italians still love to wrap you in red tape.

I suggest buying a book about living in Italy, so you can see all the dpocumentation you will need to acquire.

You must apply within 7 days of your arrival for a 'Permesso di soggiorno' - a resident's permit. This will give you 3 months to look for work. After three months you have to renew it.

You will also need to apply for a worker's registration card, called a 'libretto di lavoro'.

You will also need to get a 'Codice Fiscale' - basically a tax number. You need this to breath in Italy.

There's no problem with you getting all these things, it's just paper work. And there's probably loads of other things you need to get too. That's just Italia!

Kate-
thanks! I was aware of the permesso di....(which will be taken care of upon my arrival by my school) and the codice fiscale but not of the wrkrs reg. card.....it sounds like you've had this experience, do you live in Italy now?

Hi wine,

Take your question to www.slowtrav.com

They have a forum for expats in Italy.

Hi Winesavvy

I haven't lived there (I wish), but I am buying a property there, so am slowly becoming acquainted with the Italian love of paperwork.

Hopefully one day I'll be applying for my work permit too!

Good taste in passport, by the way

Oh, and while I remember, you can chat with expats (British ones mostly) about your needs on the forum of Italymag.co.uk
