To set your expat adventure up for success you will have to begin with gathering the correct documentation. You cannot move to Italy on a tourist or student visa and stay forever. To stay and work in Milan you will need your a Permit to stay, a Residence Card, a national Health Card or private insurance, and if you plan on driving a valid drivers license. If you are moving to Milan for work, your employer will likely help and guide you through the process. If you are moving to Milan on your own, you may want to speak with an immigration lawyer that can guide you through the process. If you are moving here from a country outside the European Union, you will need to carry out all visa applications through the Italian embassy or consulate in your home country.
