Permission to Reside & Inoculation Certificate

Under Italian law, all foreigners must obtain permission to live in Rome (the permesso di soggiorno) within eight days of arrival. The John Felice Rome Center staff will assist students in the application process upon their arrival at the Rome Center. Upon arrival at the JFRC, be sure to have this documentation with you in order to apply for your permesso di soggiorno:

  • Three (3) legible copies of the data (photo) page of your passport. Be sure to include the page above with your signature.
  • Three (3) copies of the page of your passport with the visa stamp.
  • Three (3) copies of the entry stamp in your passport issued by Passport Control upon entry into Europe (these you will make at the JFRC after your arrival).
  • Three (3) copies of the official letter of enrollment (lettera d'iscrizione); this is written in Italian, imprinted with the seal, and notarized by the Italian Consulate. Two copies of the official letter are initially provided to each student to submit with the visa application (Students who apply for their visa through the Italian Consulate of Boston will receive this letter in both English and Italian and should bring copies of both). The Italian Consulate will notarize one and return it with the student's passport and visa stamp. Make photocopies of this notarized letter. Failure to bring this notarized letter may result in dismissal from the program.
  • Four (4) passport-sized photos.
  • Three (3) copies of your LUC CISI study abroad insurance proof of enrollment.

Inoculation Certificate

Some vaccinations required for travelers to Western Europe. Certain vaccinations additionally may be required for persons traveling to Eastern Europe, Africa, and Middle Eastern countries. It is wise to check the regulations of countries in which students intend to travel. It is suggested that students consult with their physicians regarding routine inoculations when having the Medical History Report completed.
