Stay permits and residence
Moving to San Marino

Foreigners wishing to move to San Marino must apply for the necessary documents to regularise their stay in the territory.

San Marino does not grant entry visas (for nationals of non-EU countries not belonging to the Schengen area), but provides for two types of documents, to be obtained in case of stay in the territory for a period longer than 30 days: stay permits and residence.

Stay permit

Stay permits are temporary permits, to regularize stays from 3 months to one year. Stay permits have a maximum validity period of 12 months and can be renewed at the request of the holder.


Stay permits may be granted for tourism, work, family reunification (spouse and children) or cohabitation. Moreover, special stay permits may be granted for the following reasons: education, sport, medical treatment, health assistance, rehabilitation and rest, religion, humanitarian reasons, international volunteering, working holiday schemes.
