Main news regarding immigration
Entry and stay illegal in the territory of the State. Introduction of the crime of irregular immigration. This may mean that any public service officer (from teachers to social workers) is required to report the irregular immigrant to the public security authorities. In addition, a foreign citizen who enters Italy illegally, or does not ask for permission or does not make a declaration of residence within the time required by law, or stays after the permit or visa expires, is punished with a fine from 5.000 to 10.000 euro (as well as with an expulsion decree).
Health protection. The prohibition to report to the police authorities the foreigner who does not comply with the rules on the stay that is addressed to health facilities would be repealed. This means that if an irregular immigrant goes to the emergency room, for example, he can be reported to the police and then expelled.
Access to civil documents. Without the residence permit it is not possible to obtain civil status documents or access to public services. This means, for example, that a parent without a residence permit for a child born in Italy will no longer be able to recognize his child but not even register his birth in civil status.
Tax on the residence permit. To obtain or renew the residence permit, immigrant citizens will have to pay a fee that can go from 80 to 200 euro. It must be considered that currently 27,50 euros are already paid for the cost of the electronic residence permit, 30 euro for the dispatch of the renewal application via Poste, 14,62 euro for the revenue stamp.
Marriage. It will no longer be possible to marry a foreign citizen, or a foreigner, without having a "document certifying the regularity of the stay in the Italian territory". A passport is currently sufficient.
Integration agreement. Every immigrant citizen to apply for a residence permit must sign an Integration Agreement, broken down by credits. The total loss of the credits determines the revocation of the residence permit and expulsion.
Registration of personal data. It is not possible to arrange registration or change if the hygienic-sanitary conditions of the building in which the applicant intends to establish his residence are not ascertained. This rule will also apply to Italian citizens.
Citizenship. It will be more difficult for spouses of Italian citizens to obtain Italian citizenship. Currently, a spouse of an Italian citizen can apply for Italian citizenship after six months of residence on Italian territory. The security package would lead to two years of necessary residence. Without prejudice to the approximately three years of bureaucratic time required to get the question answered. Furthermore, to apply for citizenship you will have to pay a fee of 200 euro.
Money transfer. Agency owners must acquire and keep for ten years a copy of the residence permit if the subject ordering the operation is a foreign citizen. If the foreign customer does not have the title, the managers must notify the local public security authority within twelve hours, transmitting the identification data of the subject. Failure to comply with this provision is sanctioned by the cancellation from the list of financial agents.
