Advice and guidance to all new students enrolled at Tor Vergata
The Welcome Office offers advice and guidance on all aspects of moving to Italy helping and supporting during all the year with: stay permit, fiscal code request, bank account, access to Italian health system, general information about courses, scholarships and grants opportunities, life in Rome and other useful services for international and national students.
The Fiscal code is a necessary tool to identify citizens and it is issued by the Ministry of Finance. It is required for various procedures, e.g. to complete your enrolment but also to open a bank account, to request a health insurance card or sign a leasing contract.
Citizens residing abroad can go to the Italian Consular-diplomatic representation in their country of residence to request a fiscal code.
In Italy is possible to request this document at the closest "Agenzia delle Entrate" of the city in which you reside. The closest office to the Tor Vergata University is in via di Torre Spaccata 110 (behind the supermarket).

Having a valid health insurance in Italy is essential to request a residency permit.
If the student has already stipulated an insurance policy in the country of origin and it has been validated by the Italian representation before she/he left, the student can use it for the first issue of her/his residency permit.
Otherwise once in Italy the student will have two opportunities: either registering with the National Health Service (SSN) or stipulating a private policy.
National Health Service
The registration to the National Health Service (SSN), will give the student complete health assistance and she/he will be assigned (or she/he can choose) to a doctor.
Registration is valid for one solar year (from January to December)

Fillin the slip and pay € 149.77 to postal current account no. 370007 addressed to: “Tesoreria Provinciale dello Stato, Regione Lazio”;
Write the following description: "iscrizione volontaria al SSN year…."
(which means ‘voluntary registration to the SSN’);
