In witness whereof, the undersigned Plenipotentiaries have signed this Agreement. Done at London, nineteen June 1951, in the English and French languages, each text being equally authentic, in a single original, which shall be deposited in the archives of the Government of the United States of America. The Government of the United States of America shall transmit certified copies thereof to all signatory and acceding States. To be employed in Italy by someone other than the U.S. Armed Forces (including GS, NAF, and government-related positions), an Italian work visa and work permit are required. This applies to both Italian companies and companies based in the United States. If a person decides to obtain these documents, he declares to the Italian Government that he wants to be considered an ordinary resident of Italy. One cannot have the status of an ordinary residence and a residence “protected by SOFA” at the same time, regardless of one`s position here. If you benefit from the work you have done during your stay in Italy, Italian law stipulates that you have a valid work visa and a valid work permit.
In addition, the use of the U.S. Post Office for home-based businesses is not allowed. Those who opt for an Italian work visa and an Italian permit declare to the Italian government that you want to be considered an ordinary resident of Italy. One cannot have the status of habitual residence and the status of “SOFA-protected” at the same time. If you are sponsored by the command and listed in order of your spouse, you are here under “SOFA Protected Status”. Therefore, you must follow the instructions above to become an ordinary resident and renounce the status of “Protected SOFA”. However, working as an ordinary resident can disqualify a person from future U.S. government jobs in Italy. However, civilian employees of the U.S. government and all dependents who are not citizens of the European Union must have a Missione visa and a Missione Soggiorno permit. The Italian Government transmits these documents to persons who are here exclusively for the purposes of the US military mission and who therefore have the status of “SOFA-protected”.
