Question about traveling back to US once you have your Elective Residence Visa

I hope to get my Elective Residence visa for Italy starting mid-May and move to Italy about that time. Question: I need to travel back to the US in mid August for a family wedding for about 1 week. Does the visa prohibit travel back to the US or outside of Italy for that year or for any period of time? Can anyone share on this topic? thank you.

Yes, Umbertomar, it can be done differently in every town. That's what makes it difficult to help folks with questions. Regulations and processing aren't always done the same way. I'm glad you were able to easily make other arrangements. Where I live, it's like pulling teeth to get help. Sigh.

I had the same situation and I asked for a reschedule at the police station and it was easily granted. Also, I was out of Italy when my permesso was issued, I advised the police and they held it for me. I am in Sardinia and all seems a little smoother than what I see on the posts in this forum.

Hi. Normally, the elective residence visa is valid for one year and allows multiple entries/exits. Once you move in May, you must apply for your Permesso di Soggirono within 8 days. The tricky part of being gone during August is that getting one's Permesso is a three step process (application submission, appointment to give fingerprints, pick up permesso when issued) and the intermediate step of giving fingerprints could fall sometime during August. You will know your appointment date for that when you submit your application as they give you a receipt with your appointment date on it. With luck, that date will not coincide with attending the wedding. Check the date you're given and if it does conflict, ask the person that gives you the appointment date if it is possible to have him/her reschedule.
