Do I need to have and add in the Codice Fiscale application Italian address? NOT VALID WITH COVID19

No, you need to add your current residency address and country and auto declare it is the correct address. But dont worry, Agenzie delle Entrate will not send anything there, is just an formality. When you apply for your Codice Fiscale, they will print you the certificate (in a A4 paper) of your official Codice Fiscale: Certificato di Attribuzione del Codice Fiscale – EXAMPLE

Do you get Codice Fiscale printed in a plastic card and sent to me?

There is no separate card anymore, only a certificate in A4 paper format  that I will send you in .pdf form asap I go to apply for it. Certificato di Attribuzione del Codice Fiscale – EXAMPLE.

P.S.: Is just digital durning COVID-19 times, I don’t know about later!

Do I need you send me original certificare in paper form?

You don’t need the original, as long as you have the .pdf copy, it will be fine.

Because I send it ONLY with private courier that cost me 45 euros max.
Then you will have in in max 3 working days all around the world with tracking code.

How to apply for Codice Fiscale if not in Italy?

First option is to delegate it to somebody to do it for you like me. 😉

You can also apply for you Codice Fiscale from the Italian Embassy in your country. But it is important to go to apply for it, I think you can just call or send email to ask, in your region if there is more than 1 embassy in your country.

Maybe there is an option also to not to go there in Embassy yourself, but check with them please.

Probably you just need to send them your passport main page copy, you can already send also already filled out form that you can fine in my website, document showing where you live like an electric energy bill in your name or your parents), just it can take also 2/4 weeks to have it.

This is the info I have from some of my potential clients, let me know if its somehow different.

If you need it fast and already paid me also, but manage to resolve it faster with them, I can send you also half money back, no problem.

How to apply for Codice Fiscale / Italian fiscal code for my underage child (minor)?

In order to proceed with the assignment of the minor’s tax code, you must first request the assignment of the tax code for yourself.
Then he can proceed to request the tax code for the daughter/son.
You will also have to produce documentation certifying the relationship.

I have dual citizenship (USA and UK)…I live in USA. Do you need both passports?

Better you send me the passport where you have residency now so US or UK or some other country because you need to auto declare the address and the reason why you need it when signing the Codice Fiscale application form (and this is ok for Agenzie delle Entrate already) that i will send you after you pay.

The embassy asked for my marriage certificate but your website doesn’t so I wanted to double check. Do you need my marriage certificate?

Yes I can confirm, no certificate needed. I just need your valid passport main page full copy (where I can see your signature also).


How to apply for Italian Health insurance card?

Contact directly ASL (administrative centres for all public healthcare needs). You codice fiscale will be also printed over the insurance card.

P.S.: Useful free app like “iTesserino” when coming to Italy to have your Codice Fiscale in your phone as bar code to be scanned fast so you don’t need to spell it out all the places & times somebody asks if from you. You could also make print screen of it, and print it out and but in your wallet also even if it is not valid as health insurance card, you can still use when they ask your Tax Code.

Basically you can have the card virtually EVEN IF IT IS NOT VALID! (adding your name / birthday and country it should generate the same cf that you have already) and they can scan it or you can print it out after making a print screen: VIDEO EXPLANATION
How to apply for Italian living permit (permesso di soggiorno)?

Permesso di soggiorno is the main reason people need Codice Fiscale, when arriving in Italy from outside EU countries. In any case I recommend to CF before you arrive in Italy.
For how to ask for permesso di soggiorno I recommend to you to consult Google & example a website like: https://www.studiolegalemetta.com/en/permit-to-stay-permesso-di-soggiorno/

How to rent an apartment for more than 30 days in Italy without Codice fiscale? P.S.: NOT VALID IN COVID-19 TIMES NOW.
Do I really need an Codice Fiscale when renting house in Italy for more than 30 days?

Yes. The owner needs to register the contract max. 30 days (checkin date) after the signing  the contract, usually online.

Many owners ask it also before the checkin date, it is just to prepare the contract in a better way with a computer to have it ready to be signed.

As an alternative you could say to let the place empty in the contract, to add it later. So when you arrive in Italy you can go to apply for it ASAP.

Second alternative (better for you), if you dont have time to do it, when here in Italy, would be to ask favour from the owner to go to register it from Agenzie delle Entrate (not online), in this case, the owner DOES NOT NEED Codice Fiscale, but need to have at least 2 original copies of the rent contract signed by you by initials all pages and last page signed by your original full signature. They just need to fill an extra form with your info for them.
If the have just 1 original copy of the rent contract, they need to pay 3xbollo stamps totalling around 30 euros as a fine and make photocopies at the location of the contract.
