We’re diving into the adventure of moving to Italy, sharing our own experiences and some valuable logistical tips to make your Italian dream a reality. First, we discuss the logistics and visa requirements for moving to Italy. Kim and I have had the pleasure of working with an immigration attorney to build a course to help guide you through the legal aspects of moving to Italy. In this episode, Kim provides a high-level overview of the visa options as well as paths to citizenship. Consulates have strict requirements for visa applications, so you’ll need to come prepared to avoid complications.
Speaking from our own journey, we talk about the cultural differences and expectations you’ll encounter when you move to Italy. We’ll help you avoid constantly questioning why things are done a certain way in Italy and instead, embrace the system and find workable solutions to make your transition smoother. Beyond that, language barriers can be daunting but learning Italian to connect with the local community is so important. We share our recommendations for effective language learning AND building community in Italy.
If you’re dreaming of a life in Italy, this episode is a must-listen. We’ve got all the insights and advice you need to turn that dream into reality. Don’t miss out!
