Permanent repatriation to Italy

Italian citizens residing in WA who have been AIRE-registered for at least 12 months wishing to relocate to Italy or any other country of the EU are entitled to receive a statement that allows exemption from customs duties on their personal belongings and/or car or motor-vehicle (if owned for at least 6 months). To request said document,  please fill and send in our e-form attaching the following:

  • copy of applicant’s Italian passport (only page with photo);
  • detailed list of personal items;

This document is issued free of charge in 2 copies: one for the shipping agent and one for the Italian citizen about to relocate, to be produced at the customs office in original version only.

Italian citizens who return to Italy after a dismissal or non-renewal of their employment contract are entitled to receive an unemployment subsidy for returned workers, as provided for by law no. 402 of 1975.
