The Italian Residency Lab 

What if you could finally get clarity on how, when, and why you should take residency in Italy… and be able to manage the process yourself?

The Italian Residency Lab is a five-step process, designed to help foreigners navigate the process of establishing legal residency in Italy, and claim all the benefits it offers.


" I had no idea where to start to get my Italian Residency.  I didn't even really know if I needed to get it and if I did, how.  The Residency Lab has made everything so clear!  Now I know what I need to do, even before I arrive on my Visa."

Whether you’re arriving in Italy as an Italian Dual Citizen, on a Visa, or a couple with a combination of both, and you plan to live for more than three months, you will need to establish legal residency.

But, like so many of our past students before they enrolled in Residency Lab, you may be confused, don’t know what documents to bring or worse, have not registered at all…

 You've probably also been lead down a zillion rabbit holes by pseudo experts that have zero accountability for your success. And the only thing you know for certain, is that you need help.

If that’s the case — The Residency Lab is the roadmap you need to plan, prepare and apply for your residency in Italy.

Are you ready to take care of business and establish your residency the right way the first time and have the confidence to do it yourself?

Truth…Italian bureaucracy is a nightmare.

yes, Sam! Sign me up!

This is the foundation of what "residency" is in Italy, who can apply for it, when you should begin the process plus the wide variety of benefits that come with establishing residency in Italy.

Establishing your residency in Italy is a five-step process beginning with identifying what documents you need, where you need to go, getting clear on what each step involves, and how long it takes.

Frequently Asked Questions

When is the best time to take the Lab?

You should enroll in the Residency Lab if you plan to live in Italy for more than three months.  You can take it if you are in the early stages of planning your move all the way to being present in Italy. 

Do you guarantee that I will get my Residency approved?

We cannot guarantee that you will get approved for Residency.  Samantha does not have any influence over the Italian immigration and local comune decisions on your application, no one does.  However, you will learn many valuable tips and strategies to increase your chances of success - the same ones her private clients have used to get their residency approved.

How long will I have access to the Lab?

You have lifetime access to all materials for as long as we are offering this course.

How do I access the Lab materials?

Once you register, you will be sent access to our private platform where you can log in and access all course materials.  

I only plan to be in Italy for three months, do I need to take residency?

No.  You should only take this course if you are planning to move to Italy for more than 90 days.  Part time living and/or second home ownership does not qualify you for residency.

You can do this.
