StartUp Visa


Launched in December 2014 on the model of the Italy Startup Visa scheme by the Ministries of Economic Development, the Interior and Labor and Social Policies, the Italia StartUp Hub program has extended the procedural simplifications mentioned in the case of the conversion of residence permits.

StartUp Visa is an Italian government program created to attract and facilitate potential new entrepreneurs in innovation, coming from all over the world and strengthening and / or restarting the Italian economy and business.

Non-EU citizens already residing in Italy who intend to extend their stay to start an innovative startup or join as working partners to an already established innovative startup can convert their expiring permit, for example, for reasons of study into a "permit" for self-employment startup "without having to leave the Italian territory and enjoying the simplified procedures already provided for the granting of startup visas.
