Re: UK Bank Acccounts

Presumably from what you say this was in the UK.

Agreed, that's a completely different kettle of fish, plus the fact that in person they can see that the document is original, that you're the...

Re: Residency before Brexit

Submission should be OK as far as dates are concerned - but you do realise that the Comune will very likely send the local police round to check that you are actually living there before granting...

Re: Brand new WA attestazione from your comune.

And this part neatly summarises my confusion here. The question I would put is this - what use in practice is this WA 'certificate'?

I agree that it appears to do no harm to get one. But on the...

Re: Exchanging UK driving licence with C1 to an Italian licence.

You should also be aware that, if when you get an Italian C1 licence, it will need to be renewed every 2 years, including a medical and eyetest each time (none of which come free).

Also, even if...

Re: tessera sanitaria?

No, I'm afraid it doesn't. So you or your private health insurance will have to pay for any and all non-emergency treatment.

Re: Self report form for flight arrival at Bari.

But look at point 3 - "Il modulo di autosegnalazione andrà compilato per qualsiasi soggiorno che abbia previsto almeno un pernottamento." So it doesn't apply to her.

Re: Where to find long term rental websites?

Well off-topic, but a question for you, Ronron (https://britishexpats.com/forum/members/ronron-295788/). Is your first name "Dadoo" (showing my age there, I know).

Re: Permesso di soggiorno

Well, leaving aside the visa issue for one minute, from the Italian State's perspective why should they provide a simple way for anyone to reside here for more than 25% of the time, without paying...

Re: Purchasing a motorcycle, insurance question

Sorry, misunderstood your original post - when you said you had asked "the insured" I assumed you meant the previous owner.

It does all seem a bit strange, but no way should you lie to the...

Re: Purchasing a motorcycle, insurance question

Certainly I did exactly that, though it was a car and also 15 years ago. In general, given that it is the vehicle that is insured here rather than the driver I can't see why the nationality of the...

At the risk of sounding like a pantomime - oh yes there is!

Re: Proof of Italian no-claims?

Many years ago I did exactly that in the reverse direction (my wife had been with Direct Line in the UK and we moved to their subisiduary here). Worked like a dream.

Re: Any lockdown relaxation in your area ?

Be aware that the vast majority of Auchan shops were also sold to Conad (Auchan, Iper and SMA were all the same Group), so it may just be a matter of time ...

Does anyone believe for one second that it will be lifted on 15th April? In my opinion not a cat in hell's chance, and rightly so.

FWIW I don't know whether it is by convention or law (though I...
