Hi, my partner and I are wanting to move to Italy for two years. We’re both from the UK and we’d both like to work remotely by continuing our jobs with British companies.

Does anyone know if this is possible? We’ve looked online and there doesn’t seem to be a visa for this scenario, but wanted to see if anyone has been able to do this?

Among other things, I just recently read this, "Italy, which has extended its state of emergency through April 30, 2021, has a curfew in place from 10 p.m. to 5 a.m. with movement limited to a person’s city of residence. The restrictions forbidding travel between regions also closed ski resorts and effectively shut down the season."

I believe for a long-term stay visa you will need to prove you have a certain amount of money. It used to be around $50,000 USD (all I know) and I don't know what that would be in GBP but it would be higher.

You also will have tax requirements in both Italy and the UK. You might want to look at the UK govt. web site at https://www.gov.uk/browse/abroad

Have you looked at this official site?

If you want to continue working for British companies I assume you'll either be in salaried employment or freelance self-employment. The site above will guide you to the application process for the correct visa.

If you're still not sure what visa applies you can contact the embassy for guidance. After you have filled in the four questions contact information & email link is given at the bottom of the page.

Thank you for all your advice! I’ll look at the website, I didn’t know I could email the embassy, so that’s very helpful!

You can certainly email the embassy (as you can most embassies & consulates). Whether you get anything more than an automated reply in response is a different matter.
