Validity of the Intra-company residence permit based on a Service Agreement

The Intra-company residence permit based on a Service Agreement has a maximum duration of 2 years, but it is renewable.
The residence permit is renewable under the same substantive conditions for the issuance of the first one, as long as the foreign national is never absent from the Italian territory for longer than 6 continuous months.
The applicant can renew the residence permit on their own or be assisted by us.
After 5 years of continuous registered legal residency in Italy, the applicant would be eligible to apply for a permanent residence permit.
