TERMINATION OF VALIDITY AS OF AUGUST 3, 2023 OF RESIDENCE CARDS FOR FAMILY MEMBERS OF EU CITIZENS IN PAPER FORMAT (CARTE DI SOGGIORNO PER FAMILIARI DI CITTADINI EU IN FORMATO CARTACEO)

We inform the Italian citizens resident in Italy about the (UE)Regulation 2019/1157, containing provisions on strengthening the security of identity cards and residence permits issued to citizens of the European Union and their family members, has established at article 8 the cessation, starting from 3 August 2023, of the validity of residence cards of family members of EU citizens that do not comply with the new requirements, including the Residence Card for family members of EU citizens in paper format.

The holders of the aforementioned cards who have not converted their document into the electronic version will therefore have to obtain a visa for the purpose of crossing the borders, if required by their nationality.

Citizens of other countries who have already applied for converting their card and whose application has not yet been completed, are allowed to re-enter the Italian national territory by direct flight by showing the receipt for the renewal of their residence permit.
