Extension of the Residence Permits
With the Decree-Law no. 2/2021 approved on January 14, the Government ordered the further extension of residence permits until as at 30 April 2021.
The expiry of the residence permits, which had already been postponed to January 31, 2021, is therefore postponed for a further three months, with the consequent possibility for non-EU citizens to proceed with the renewal after that date. Here the text of art. 3 bis co. 3 D.L. 125/2020, amended by art. 5, D.L. 2/2021: “Residence permits and qualifications referred to in Article 103, paragraphs 2-quater and 2-quinquies, of the decree-law of 17 March 2020, n. 18, converted, with amendments, by law 24 April 2020, n. 27, including those expiring until 30 April 2021, retain their validity until the same date “.
Furthermore, similarly to the provisions of the previous extension of 3 December 2020, the following were also extended to the same deadline:
– a) the terms for the conversion of residence permits from study to subordinate work and from seasonal work to non-seasonal subordinate work;
– b) the permits to stay referred to in Article 5, paragraph 7, of the consolidated act as per legislative decree no. 286;
