Health Insurance

Tax Code


The Codice Fiscale (Italian Tax Code) is a personal code (combination of numbers and letters) which identifies each individual person in Italy when dealing with public offices and/or administration. For example, you may need it in case you want to open a bank account in Italy, sign a rental contract, etc. It is strongly recommended to request “codice fiscale” applying for it to Italian consular authorities in the Country of residence. For the specific modalities please visit the website of the competent consular office. In any other situation, “codice fiscale” can be obtained from the offices of the Italian Revenue Agency, by submitting the form AA4/8 indicating the personal data and the residence for tax purposes.

For all incoming students who are physically in Italy, the Tax Code / Codice Fiscale can be requested to the nearest Revenue Agency office (Agenzia delle Entrate)

The Italian Revenue Agency has several offices (uffici territoriali) in different areas of the city. You can refer to this list for the one closest to you. 

The application process can be carried out by email (pick the office closest to where you live).
