Re: Registering as self-employed in UK and living abroad

Don't you need to be resident in UK to be registered as self-employed?

Re: Residency - looks like a bit of a minefield?

Re: Renewing Italian Passport

Not until mine runs out (2020)

It depends on the Comune of origin. When I applied in 2010 they didn't have it. They have it now. Next time I will go for a passport.

Re: Renewing Italian Passport

If you don't mind me asking NewComo, but if she's got a valid CID can't she just wait until she's in Italy to renew her passport? I know that nowadays travelling with an Italian C'ID is a P.I.T.A....

I do not doubt this is true indeed, in which case let me suggest you some topics you might want to expand:

Re: Renewing Italian Passport

Surely you don't know about the AIRE and how rules change for Italian citizens who are not resident in Italy. Or probably you know, because you put your nose in everything.

And what do you know about Italian passports, Lorna? And what do you know about the AIRE? I am curious because you seem to know about everything.

Re: Renewing Italian Passport

Is she registered to the AIRE?

If no, she has to come back to Italy (I think)

If yes, it depends on where she lives. In some areas she could go to an "Agenzia Consolare" which will then forward...

Re: Moving to the Netherlands with an almost 11 year old?

The Dutch schools offer many after-school activities If you enroll your child in one of these, he will improve his Dutch considerably. 6 months at his age are enough. I've seen children of extra-eu...

Re: Advantages of a British passport?

Another advantage of being British is that when you move abroad you're an expat, while if you are foreigner and move to Britain, you're an immigrant.

Re: Moving to the Netherlands with an almost 11 year old?

If your child is particularly smart and fast learner and is not let to speak only with English speakers, he could get to a decent level in only 6 months. Bear in mind that a child of 10 doesn't have...

Well first of all if you are serious about living in NL you should hurry up and study Dutch. Probably Amsterdam is the wrong place because you find very few locals in there.
