Shipping Freight Icon

Shipping to Italy

The main shipping port in Italy is Rome. From there, your removal company can transport your goods to anywhere in the country. Whether it’s to the bustling city of Madrid or the quaint town of Tuscany. 

The cost of shipping items will rest on the size of the container and whether you opt for a dedicated or shared consignment. In very loose terms, the cost of sea freight containers can be:

20ft Container -  £980 - £1,090

40ft Container - £1,850 - £2,060

Road Freight to Italy

Road and rail freight options may be suitable when relocating to Italy. Your chosen mover will discuss the package options available to you. 

Often, a door to door service is the most simple and convenient. 

This will involve having your home packed up in the UK and your goods delivered to your new home in Italy on an agreed date.

Air Freight Icon

Air Freight o Italy

It is worth remembering that quick transport and a convenient service will come at a higher price point. 

In general, airfreight isn’t the most recommended method when emigrating to Italy.

Customs and Legalities...

Income tax in Italy is to be paid by expats who reside there. If you have lived in Italy for more than 183 days consecutively then you are required to pay tax on your entire income whereas, for the first 183 days, you will only need to pay income tax on your earnings in Italy. 

Personal effects and furniture shouldn’t incur import duties but you will need to provide passport copies, and an inventory of all items you are bringing (in Italian). You will have to pay duty on anything not listed.

You must apply to your nearest Commune-Ufficio Anagrafe (Town Hall) if you plan to stay and you will need a Certificato de Residenza (Certificate of Residence). 

After 4 years, EU Nationals can apply for residency and non-EU citizens can apply after 10 years. For Italian health care, you will need to apply to your local ‘Azienda Unita Sanitaria Locale’
