Fiscal Code


Fiscal Code




The Tax Code (Codice Fiscale) is an alphanumerical code issued by the Italian Revenue Agency.

It is used by the Italian Public Administration to identify citizens living in Italy and it is required for all sorts of procedures (i.e. opening a bank account, applying for the national health service, renting a flat, applying for a fixed telephone line, etc.).

The Tax Code is generated automatically on the UNIVERSITALY Portal during the pre-enrolment application.

Hence no Tax Code will be issued by the Consulate General of Italy in Kolkata in the framework of the new pre-enrolment procedure through the UNIVERSITALY Portal.

In all other cases, Tax Codes for the 2020-2021 Academic Year will be issued by the local Italian Revenue Agency (Agenzia delle Entrate) upon arrival to Italy.

Please note that the Consulate General of Italy in Kolkata will issue Tax Codes only in limited cases where the tax code cannot be obtained through the UNIVERSITALY portal or it is strictly needed for administrative procedures to be completed before the departure.

Only in those cases, the tax code can be requested to the Consulate General of Italy by writing to the following e-mail address:

In case of loss

In case of loss or destruction of the fiscal code card, a duplicate can be requested for, in the same way as for issuance.
