If they happen to be 10 EU countries, then in the last country that person worked in he should apply for pension and get pension combined from all the countries he worked in. As Europa.eu portal explains, if you've worked in several EU countries, you may have accumulated pension rights in ...

What an interesting challenge! I looked at the CNN article, which mentioned "Counselor" Antonio Tedeschi. The word "Counselor" sounds like the position held by a local government official. There were too many towns to review, so I searched for the region "Molise," which might be similar to what we know as a county, and could explain how the offer could ...

The EU residence permit granted by a Schengen State will allow you to reside in another Schengen State for up to 90 days. To stay longer you must apply for a national residence permit from the other Member State. Foreigners who intend to stay in Italy for more than three months must apply for a residence permit. These permits allow foreigners to stay in ...

I have no personal experience with this, but I think the question can be analyzed without that based on the assumption that your primary concern is moving with your family to the Netherlands. I conclude that you should decide where to file the application based on the date of your move. You say that it will take up to one year to get all of the documents ...

Your Italian licence is valid to drive in the UK until it expires. You can exchange it at any time for a UK licence, but this is not obligatory. You can see this at https://www.gov.uk/exchange-foreign-driving-licence/y/yes/car-or-motorcycle/european-union. In order to drive in the UK, you will need to pay VED (Vehicle Excise Duty or "car tax") and ensure ...

The first thing that you need after the marriage is the transcription. Or through embassy/consulate or in the Comune/Municipio (cityhall) where you and your spouse will go to live. After you need to ask a resident card called "Carta di Soggiorno" (for spouse is not called "Permesso di Soggiorno") that will last 5 years. Depends on the city can take 1 month ...

Under EU rules, as the spouse of an EU citizen, you are entitled to a free visa. However, since your fiancée is Italian, and you wish to enter Italy, you may be required to work under Italian law rather than EU law. I looked at the Italian governments website, however, and did not see any indication that they have different rules for Italian citizens' ...

Unfortunately not. From the US Embassy in Italy: Unfortunately, there is no agreement for reciprocal recognition of drivers' licenses between the United States and Italy. The Italian Ministry of Transportation has determined that bearers of U.S. driver's licenses cannot obtain an Italian license directly in exchange for a domestic one. Interested ...

Talk about your plans with your friends so they can prepare themselves emotionally for your eventual departure. Similarly, you meet new acquaintances, mention your plans early on so they know what they're dealing with. As your plans become more definite, for example when you pick a date for your move, mention them to your friends, and discuss them with ...

It is certainly not allowed and seems somewhat unlikely (although by no means impossible) to work in practice. An Italian license would indeed be valid in Germany but you should not be allowed to get a license in Italy. I am not sure whether you could get away with it in practice, but EU rules are clear: Your country of residence should handle all driving ...

Just to add to @Gala's post, in general you cannot get a driver licence in a different jurisdiction. However in most places this law is not (or not really) enforced, or they don't really care about it. For example in the UK you just have to tick a box in the form stating you are a resident (even if you are not). In the case of Germany however they ...

You cannot enjoy freedom of movement unless you are accomoanying or joining your EU family member. You therefore cannot get a Spanish residence permit under the freedom of movement regime unless your spouse establishes residence in Spain. You will not be able to work unless you have a Spanish residence permit. It is unlikely that the two of you will be ...

The US Green Card is an immigration permit, meaning it allows you to move into the US permanently. If you decide to move somewhere else permanently, you are considered to have abandoned your US immigration plans, as you cannot be a permanent resident in two places. Technically, if you are outside of the US for more than a year, you are considered to have ...

If you're intent on staying in the UK long-term, I would recommend taking out the UK licence regardless of any UK licences you might already have. While you can use your Italian licence as much as you like, until it expires (provided it's one of the new card EU licences, as opposed to any old form you country might have used before), some things are more ...

Legally speaking you do. Practically speaking, if you don't get a visa and don't tell the immigration officers that that's what you plan to do - there's a very low chance of being caught. That said, you will be breaking the law, and if someone tips about you to the authorities - you may be arrested and deported.

I'm not an accountant and I'm not liable for any action you take as consequence of reading the subsequent text. You are a resident of Italy and as such you pay all your taxes in Italy. I think it does not matter that you did a job in another country. There is a treaty against double taxation between the US and Italy so you may want to read it: http://...

The ability to use another country's healthcare for free will depend on a few things. Firstly, whether or not they will just willingly treat. The UK is pretty good for this, for example in some situations. Secondly, it'll come down to reciprocity. Some countries have agreements that they'll treat the citizens of each other's country if visiting. For ...

Dunno how I didn't spot this before but guess I was too focused around the setup they were already using and had tailored my searches around that but the below links seem to solve the problem mostly albeit losing some channels but being official. http://www.sky4me.tv/sky-uk-italy http://www.skyeurope.tv/sky-subscription-italy Both sites provide access to ...

I have British friends in Japan who have used TV-through-the-net (like Slingbox) to transmit the programming over the internet for viewing through an internet connection anywhere they travel to. This requires: Having someone in the UK to set up the box for you and connect it to the internet Fast enough internet connections on both sides Some technical ...

First, none of the countries involved (UK, Australia, Italy) prohibit multiple citizenship today. So if you continue with your plan, your boyfriend will not have to renounce anything. As mentioned in the comments above, according to Italian nationality law there does not seem to be any automatic acquisition of Italian citizenship upon marriage (although, ...

I asked the dealer in Italy the other day, who contacted the agency through which they do the registrations. Turns out EE plates have been abolished some time ago. Therefore the only options are: If the car is still registered in the previous owner's name, drive it across the border with that registration and re-register it upon arrival. Some owners may be ...

I don't have enough reputation to comment on Sayed's answer, but about the 5., it does affect things, and indeed your SO could not get the italian citizenship if her mother was born after her grandfather became British. If she was born before but she never bothered on getting the italian citizenship, I'm pretty sure she (her mother) couldn't renounce to it ...

Most countries recognize marriages performed in other countries, and the US is no exception. The couple can marry in any jurisdiction that will marry them. The advantage of marrying in the US is that they will not need to get the marriage license legitimized before presenting it with the application to the US federal government. This may be a relatively ...
