Visas for accompanying family members (“familiari al seguito”) enable non-EU citizens to enter Italy accompanied by their family members. Even individuals holding study visas, under the conditions prescribed by law, are eligible to apply for visas for accompanying family members.
However, prior to applying for such visas, it is imperative to obtain the required authorization known as “Nulla Osta” from SUI, the Single Immigration Desk located at the Prefecture of the intended city of residence. The application for authorization for the accompanying family member must be submitted electronically by the non-EU citizen themselves, after they have registered and obtained an electronic identification known as SPID. The entire procedure is conducted in the Italian language and can be completed on the Ministry of the Interior’s website.
