General advice for the public and basic

protective measures

against the new coronavirus.

For more info see https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Take care of your health and protect others by doing the following:

Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Why?
Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why?
When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why?
Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.

Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why?
Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19. If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance.

Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why?
National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider
Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
Why?
National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.

To British Nationals in Italy

Jill Morris CMG

Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Italy

Before many of us take a summer break with our friends and families, I wanted to provide a further update on Italy’s implementation of the Withdrawal Agreement and your citizens’ rights. Over the last few months, I and my team have engaged with UK nationals living here. Through online events and discussions we are aware that many of you continue to have questions around your future rights and how to evidence those rights. I hope therefore that the information below is a useful summary of the latest developments. As always, you can find comprehensive information on our Living in Italy page gov.uk.

The new Withdrawal Agreement “attestazione”

If you are a UK national living in Italy by the end of the year your lifelong rights will be protected under the Withdrawal Agreement for as long as you remain a resident in Italy.

You first need to register your residency with your local comune/municipio if you have not already done so. You should try to do this by the end of the year. You can find out more about how to register on our Living in Italy guide. You should also consult the website of your local town hall.

Once you have registered your residency, you need to obtain the new Withdrawal Agreement attestazione, again from your local comune. The name of the new document is the Attestazione di iscrizione anagrafica (ai sensi dell’art.18.4 dell’Accordo sul recesso del Regno Unito e dell’Irlanda del Nord dall’Unione Europea e del d.lgs. n. 30/2007).

It is mandatory to obtain the new document but there is no deadline for doing so. You are not required to hand in your current residency document and should not do so. The new attestazione is issued in addition and not to replace current documents.

If you have difficulties in obtaining it, you should take along the relevant government circular (circolare n.3/2020) which you can find here. You can also find it on our Living in Italy page on gov.uk.

We are aware that some UK nationals are experiencing problems in obtaining the new document. We continue to engage with the Italian government to resolve these issues.

Please do get in touch with us via our Living in Italy page if you do have difficulties in obtaining the new document.

International Organisation for Migration (IOM) support for UK nationals in Italy

The FCO has announced funding for organisations to provide practical support to UK nationals who may have difficulty completing their residency application or registration.

This support is available only to those who need additional help. This may include pensioners, disabled people, people living in remote areas or who have mobility difficulties.

The services available for people who need this additional support include:

  • answering questions about residency applications, such as the documents required and application procedure;
  • guiding individuals through the process, if necessary;
  • supporting people facing language barriers or difficulty accessing technology.

In Italy, this practical support is being provided by the International Organisation for Migration. If you or someone you know may have difficulty completing the paperwork, you can contact them to discuss how they may be able to help you. You can contact them on: 800 684 884 or email: UKnationalsit@iom.int

Dual Nationals living in Italy

Dual nationals (UK-Italian or UK-Other Member State) who previously exercised their freedom of movement rights (for example a UK national who moved to Italy to work and gained Italian citizenship) are protected by the Withdrawal Agreement. However, as an Italian citizen or other EU citizen, you will continue to benefit from your existing free movement rights by virtue of your EU citizenship. This is not subject to the UK leaving the EU and is not dependent on taking any further action to secure your residence rights under the Withdrawal Agreement.

As a dual national, who has exercised their free movement rights before the end of the transition period and is therefore in scope of the Withdrawal Agreement, you will benefit from rights under the Withdrawal Agreement. Social security coordination is the key element and includes (as for all those covered by the Withdrawal Agreement):

  • contributions made in the UK continuing to be aggregated with those paid in Italy or other Member States;
  • the right to an uprated UK State Pension, if you meet the existing eligibility criteria will continue; and
  • reciprocal healthcare cover (such as S1, EHIC and S2 rights) once you start exporting your UK State Pension, including UK State Pensioners who are already benefiting from that cover in Italy.

And as for all those covered by the Withdrawal Agreement you will also benefit from having professional qualifications protected by the Withdrawal Agreement. To do this, you need to ensure you have your qualifications recognised. You have until the end of the transition period to submit an application for a recognition decision if you are yet to do so. The way in which dual nationals will be able to evidence these rights is yet to be determined by the Italian authorities. We are seeking clarification on these plans and we will publish information on our Living in Italy guide as soon as it becomes available.

Healthcare Rights under the Withdrawal Agreement

If you are living in Italy before the end of 2020, your rights to access healthcare in Italy will stay the same for as long as you remain legally resident.

You need to be registered as a resident to access state healthcare in Italy. At the moment, UK nationals living in Italy usually access the Italian health system in one of these ways:

  • registering to use the Italian state health system
  • using a UK-issued European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) for temporary stays
  • registering a UK-issued S1 with the Italian health system

The S1 form entitles UK nationals to access to state healthcare on the same basis as an Italian citizen. You are entitled to an S1 if you receive a UK State Pension or certain other benefits.

If you are employed or self-employed, you can register with the national health system for free. You can register your dependants at the same time. If you are not working or paying social security contributions, you may be able to register with the national health system voluntarily by paying a fee each year. This depends on the region of Italy you live in. If you cannot register voluntarily in your region, you will need to take out private health insurance.

If you are living in Italy before the end of 2020, your rights to access healthcare in Italy will stay the same for as long as you remain legally resident. This means you will continue to get state healthcare in Italy from 1 January 2021 on the same basis as an Italian resident. If you have yet to reach state pension age, you will have the right to apply for a UK S1 once you start drawing your UK state pension, providing you are legally resident in Italy before the end of 2020 and remain covered under the Withdrawal Agreement.

For further information on how to register for healthcare in Italy please consult our healthcare pages on gov.uk.

Future validity of the UK-issued EHIC

There will be no changes to healthcare access for UK nationals visiting or living in Italy before 31 December 2020. The agreement temporarily protects EHIC and S2 for UK nationals who find themselves in Italy on 31 December 2020 (this includes third country nationals who are ordinarily resident in the UK or hold a valid UK-issued EHIC). You will be able to complete any treatment you are undergoing or have access to ‘needs arising’ treatment through your EHIC in Italy, until you leave Italy by travelling to another EU Member State or returning to the UK. This includes people on holiday.

Longer term, some UK-issued EHICs in Italy are covered by the Withdrawal Agreement. Such as:

  • UK state pensioners living in Italy at the end of Transition Period (you can continue to use your UK-issued EHIC when accessing healthcare in another EU member state),
  • UK students studying in Italy at the end of Transition Period,
  • Individuals who are frontier workers at the end of the Transition Period, for as long as they continue to be covered by the Agreement, and
  • EEA or Swiss nationals residing in the UK by the end of the Transition Period.
  • UK Nationals already living in Italy who hold an Italian EHIC (known in Italy as TEAM – Tessera Europea Assicurazione Malattia) may use this when accessing healthcare within the EU and UK

For people not covered by the Withdrawal Agreement, the future of reciprocal healthcare arrangements between the UK and EU are subject to negotiations, which are currently ongoing.

New UK Government information campaign for UK nationals living in the EU

The government has launched a major new public information campaign to help businesses and individuals to prepare for the end of the transition period on 31 December.

As part of the wider campaign launched on 13 July to help people prepare for the end of the transition period, the FCO is leading a campaign aimed at UK nationals living in the EU to help ensure they take the actions they need to be ready, including applying for residency and checking their access to healthcare. This campaign will include adverts on social media, podcasts, billboards and English-language newspapers in countries across the EU, and will continue until June 2021.

Staying in touch with UK nationals in Italy

During lockdown, we postponed our face-to-face outreach meetings with UK nationals across Italy. However, we have continued to stay in touch via our social media channels including running live Q & A sessions on Facebook.

We have published a new Information Guide for UK nationals on the Withdrawal Agreement on our Living in Italy guide.

Please do feel free to download it to share with friends and family.

We have also updated our Living in Italy guide this month. It now includes further information on residency as well as the new attestazione. Lines on healthcare have been updated as well as on driving licence validity. Please do continue to consult these pages for the very latest information. You can also get in touch with us via our Living in Italy page if you have any questions about your rights.

I wish you and your family and friends a very enjoyable summer.
With warm wishes,

To British Nationals in Italy

Jill Morris CMG

Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Italy

 

I wanted to take this opportunity to provide information on the measures still in place in Italy to manage the Covid-19 health emergency, as well as to update you on our work on citizens’ rights in Italy.

Coronavirus and Phase II

The Italian government has now issued details of its Phase II planning. You can find full information here. In summary, ongoing restrictions remain in place – so individuals should only leave home for work and health reasons or necessities, e.g. food shopping/pharmacy visits, individual exercise.  Self-declarations are still in use and for now the latest autodichiarazione of 26 March is still valid (be aware the form may shortly change).

Visits to family members living within the same region will be permitted, wearing masks and respecting at least 1mt distance.  Travel between regions is still prohibited – aside from reasons of work, urgency or health. People will be allowed to return home (residence or domicile) from wherever they are, carrying a self-declaration form.  Access to parks and public gardens is allowed provided safety measures can be respected and people observe at least 1mt distance.  Nurseries, schools and universities remain closed with continued on-line teaching.  Masks are compulsory across Italy when in closed public spaces, including on public transport and in all conditions where compliance with social distancing may be more complex. In some regions, gloves may also be compulsory. Children below the age of 6 and people suffering from disabilities which are not compatible with the prolonged use of masks are exempted.

Where to find information

You can find more information on the government’s measures on the Italian Ministry of Health website (in Italian) and the Frequently Asked Questions document on the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website (in English). Our Italy Travel Advice page also has all the most up to date details including links to the main government pages.

Travel between Italy and the UK

If you plan to travel between Italy and the UK, please consult the Italian government website here which details the requirements on entering Italy from overseas. Our Travel Advice page also has information on travelling to the UK here.

Those travelling to Italy from the UK will need to evidence their reason for travel including presentation of a valid residency document before departure. You will need to complete two copies of the self-declaration form which should be presented before boarding in the UK and on arrival in Italy. Non-residents may be refused permission to travel unless you can prove a valid reason for entering Italy. Restriction on entering is being applied strictly so travel must be shown to be of absolute necessity. Masks must be worn on board the plane. On arrival in Italy you are required to self-quarantine for 14 days. You must inform your local health authority of your place of quarantine.

Travel to the UK is permitted for a valid reason. On arrival in the UK you should comply with the current lockdown measures detailed here. These may change at short notice so please continue to consult the official information.

Alitalia is operating limited flights between Rome and London. Flight schedules are likely to change at short notice. Please consult the airline website for further details.

Citizens’ Rights

Many of you have asked about the impact of Coronavirus on citizens’ rights. When the UK left the EU we entered a transition period until 31 December, during which EU law continues to apply and the rights of UK nationals largely remain unchanged, including access to healthcare. The UK government’s position is that the transition period will not be extended beyond 31 December this year. We continue to engage with the Italian government to ensure the rights of UK nationals here are recognised and to prepare for the end of the transition period.

The Italian government has provided information on your continued rights here. And the Ministry of Health has confirmed the continued right to access healthcare for those eligible here. If you have any difficulties, you should signpost the relevant service provider to these Italian government websites. You can also get in touch with us by calling +39 06 4220 0001 (option 2) for those in central and southern Italy or +39 02 72 3001 (option 2) for those in the north of Italy.

The Withdrawal Agreement

You must be officially resident in Italy by 31 December in order to continue to enjoy lifelong rights under the Withdrawal Agreement for as long as you remain resident in Italy. The Withdrawal Agreement protects rights such as access to healthcare, benefits and pensions including the right to an uprated UK state pension (including when claiming it in the future). These lifelong rights extend to your close family members. Please see our Living in Guide for more details. Only those legally resident by 31 December will be covered by the Withdrawal Agreement.

If you have not yet registered as a resident you should contact your local comune to see if they are permitting registration during this time.

The Italian government has issued an additional document, a new ‘attestazione’, to evidence your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement. This is available to you if are already registered as a resident with your local anagrafe. You can read more here. During lockdown the Italian government has advised that you should not try to obtain the new ‘attestazione’. There will be time to do so later this year.

Support for UK nationals in regulating their status in Italy

We are delighted to announce that the International Organisation for Migration will be delivering the UK Government’s UK National Support Fund in Italy. They will be supporting UK Nationals with the necessary local procedures to obtain and maintain the right to be resident in Italy after the end of the transition period.

IOM’s work will complement the UK government’s strategy, which includes the allocation of £3 million in support of organisations helping UK Nationals across several European countries. The new programme will be launched later this month and will run for 12 months, i.e. until 31 March 2021. You can read more here.

Virtual Drop-In Session

We recently held a Q & A session for UK nationals living in Italy. Below are a selection of the most popular questions raised:

We are Italian residents currently located in the UK. Are we permitted to drive through France to our home in Italy? If so, what paperwork do we need?

For information on returning to Italy as a place of residence, please consult the information available on the Italian government website here:

If planning to travel through France you will need to meet the specific requirements of the French government during lockdown. This includes the completion of a self-declaration form before travel. More information can be found here including links to the relevant forms.

I am a legal resident of Italy, I was lead to believe previously that if there was no deal, my Italian health care would cease at the end of the transition period unless Italy and the UK reached a separate agreement in this respect. Does this apply now?

The Withdrawal Agreement protects the rights of UK nationals legally resident in Italy. To be covered by the Withdrawal Agreement you must be resident in Italy before 31 December. Your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement, including continued access to healthcare, are lifelong for you and your close and current family members for as long as you remain resident in Italy. Your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement will not be affected by the results of the negotiations taking place between the UK and the EU this year – those negotiations concern the future trading relationship between the UK and the EU. The Withdrawal Agreement is an international treaty that has already been agreed and entered into force on 31 Jan 2020.

As a British citizen employed full-time in Italy for the past 6 months, if my company decides to use cassa integrazione, am I entitled to the same help/benefits from the Italian government as my Italian colleagues?

The answer to your question is yes. There might be conditions related to the length of service, i.e. you could receive a lower amount related to the fact you have worked for six months only. The temporary extraordinary ‘cassa integrazione’ related to the pandemic is currently provided for a period of 8 weeks.

More generally under the EU Freedom of Movement Directive, those who are living in Italy this year and employed are entitled to support from the state if there is a change in your status. You are entitled to the same help and benefits from the Italian government as a host national – including beyond the end of this year as someone covered by the Withdrawal Agreement, provided you are legally resident in Italy.

You may wish to discuss your situation with your local work consultant or CAF (Centro di Assistenza Fiscale).

I have been made redundant as a result of the pandemic. Is there any financial assistance that I can apply for while in lockdown?

A UK national who is involuntarily laid off is protected by EU law during the transition period and indeed beyond this year under the terms of the Withdrawal Agreement. That means eligibility for state benefits as a result of being made unemployed.

In Italy if someone has an ordinary regular contract and is made redundant, he/she is entitled to an unemployment subsidy (“Nuova Prestazione di Assicurazione  Sociale per l’Impiego”- NASPI) for a limited number of months and/or until they find another job. Different conditions may apply, so you may wish to discuss your situation with your local work consultant or CAF (Centro di Assistenza Fiscale).

Will UK nationals living in Italy continue to receive state pension increases after the transition period?

Those covered by the Withdrawal Agreement (i.e. resident in Italy by 31 December this year) and in receipt of a UK state pension will continue to receive it after the end of the transition period. It will continue to be uprated beyond the end of this year for as long as you remain in scope of the Withdrawal Agreement (i.e. resident in Italy). This also applies to those covered by the Withdrawal Agreement but not yet claiming a UK state pension. When they reach pensionable age and are eligible for a UK state pension they will also receive an uprated pension provided they remain resident in Italy.

Will there be an extension to the Transition period?

The Government was elected on a manifesto which made clear the transition period would end on 31 December. That is now enshrined in primary legislation and it remains our policy. We will not ask to extend the transition period, and if the EU asks we will say no. Extending the transition would simply prolong the negotiations, prolong business uncertainty, and delay the moment of control of our borders.  Extending the transition would mean we will have to make further payments into the EU budget.  It would also keep us bound by EU legislation, at a point when we need legislative and economic flexibility to manage the UK response to the Coronavirus pandemic.

Staying up to date

Please continue to check our Living in Italy guide for updates. You can sign up to my newsletter and be notified when new information is published. You can also receive updates via our social media channels including FaceBook and Twitter.

I want to assure you that I and my team in Italy will continue to reach out to you and offer our support.

With warm wishes,
Jill Morris CMG
Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Italy

 

 

UK GOVERNMENT LAUNCHES INFORMATION CAMPAIGN

TO SUPPORT UK NATIONALS IN ITALY

 

  • The UK Government’s Foreign Office launches a vital information campaign targeting more than one million Brits across Europe with support and advice on steps to protect their rights after the transition period ends on 31 December
  • The Foreign Office will also offer assistance to those UK nationals who may struggle to complete residency or registration applications through £3million support fund
  • The British Embassy has run a range of activity to reach UK nationals in Italy. In 2020 alone it has organised 7 town hall meetings and 3 Facebook live Q&A sessions

 

Rome 31 July 2020 – The UK Government has launched a public information campaign across Europe to help UK nationals prepare for the end of the UK’s transition period on 31 December.

 

UK nationals living in Italy will receive information about specific actions they need to take to keep their rights and access to services in Italy, including around residency, healthcare, driving licences and passports.

 

The campaign will use multiple channels – including Facebook, digital media and newspaper advertising in Italy – urging people to take necessary action to protect their rights so that they can continue living, working and travelling in Europe after the transition period.

 

In addition to this major information campaign, the British Embassy in Italy has already been working with community groups and directly with UK nationals to inform and reassure them. This includes providing information and support through town hall information meetings, question and answer sessions with the Ambassador and consular experts, as well as Facebook live Q&A sessions, video messages and newsletters.

British Ambassador to Italy Jill Morris CMG said:

“Protecting the rights of UK nationals is an absolute priority for us. That’s why we have been providing advice and reassurance to UK nationals, to make sure they have all the information they need and certainty about their rights.

“Brits in Italy should visit our Living in Guides where they can find out about the steps they need to take and get important information about residency, healthcare, passports and driving licences in Italy.”

The UK Government also announced last year up to £3 million in grant funding for charities and other voluntary organisations to provide practical support to help vulnerable UK nationals who may struggle to complete residency or registration applications – for example those who have mobility difficulties, are disabled or elderly. These groups may need extra help to complete any paperwork in preparation for the end of the transition period.

This extra assistance will build on the support that British Embassies are already providing with more than 775 events with UK nationals since November 2017.

 

Further information:

  • UK nationals in the EU need to take to action to secure their rights, such as applying for a new residence status or registering for residency in their member state if they haven’t done so already.
  • The Foreign Office has launched a campaign through embassies across Europe, engaging with UK Nationals who are resident, studying or travelling to the EU and signposting people to ‘Living In Guides’ on GOV.UK with specific information for each country.
  • The £3 million in grant funding for charities is part of the UK Nationals Support Fund announced last year. This provides funding to third party organisations to support UK nationals living in EU/EFTA countries who may struggle to complete residency or registration applications in the Member State where they live. The fund has been fully allocated to organisations including Age in Spain, The AIRE Centre, Asociación Babelia, CIFSA, Franco British Network, International Organisation for Migration (IOM) and The Armed Forces Charity (SSAFA).
  • Our network of embassies and consulates across Europe have held over 775 outreach events with UK nationals since November 2017 to understand their concerns and explain actions they need to take. These events have reached over 410,000 people since November 2017.
  • British Ambassadors from across Europe have recorded a video encouraging UK nationals to take action which can be found here. British Ambassador Jill Morris sends regular updates to UK nationals: read the most recent newsletter on Facebook.

In addition to this, our Living in Guides on GOV.UK provide the latest advice to UK nationals. However, over the coming weeks we are stepping up our engagement across Europe and launching an information campaign to further explain what actions UK nationals need to take within the country where they live.

Press release from the British Embassy Rome

IOM in Italy to support British Nationals who want to regulate their status in Italy  Supporting British Nationals with the necessary local procedures to obtain and maintain their right to be resident in Italy after the end of the transition period.

This is the objective of a new programme launched by the International Organisation for Migration (IOM) with funding from the UK Government. The British Embassy in Rome will be supporting IOM as it carries out this important work. The programme is part of a wider initiative through which the UK government and IOM aim to reach and provide assistance to approximately 30,000 British citizens in Germany, France, Italy, Poland, Portugal, Slovakia and Spain. Laurence Hart, Director for the IOM Mediterranean Coordination Office, said: “We are delighted to be able to take forward this extremely useful and valuable activity here in Italy”. “IOM will facilitate access to the necessary information about residency requirements for British Nationals in Italy. We will also provide direct support on completing paperwork for all those who might be having difficulties in taking forward the required procedures introduced here”. Cookie preferences
Information will be made available on dedicated webpages on both the IOM and British Embassy in Italy websites (see Living in Guide). IOM will also be offering help to individuals with specific issues, especially those with chronic disease, disability or those experiencing language or technical barriers. “This initiative will provide direct support to British Nationals, to ensure they avoid finding themselves with an irregular status in Italy. It will also help key Italian institutions streamline the completion of the necessary paperwork”. IOM’s work will complement the UK government’s strategy, which includes the allocation of £3 million in support of organisations helping British Nationals across several European countries. This will assist British nationals with bureaucratic and administrative procedures that are required to regulate their status in Europe. ‘We welcome IOM’s new service for UK nationals to help them regulate their status here in Italy, so they can continue to enjoy their rights after the end of the transition period”, said Jill Morris, British Ambassador to Italy. The new programme will be launched later this month and will run for 12 months, i.e. until 31 March 2021. [The measures Italy has put in place in response to the coronavirus means that UK nationals should not try to register their residency at this time. IOM stands ready to support UK nationals in registering with their local town hall when restrictions are lifted].
