Dear @Pretty

Thank you for reaching out to the Wefugees community! 

Your title is mentioning Italy. Are you living in Germany (where this platform and our experts are based) or in Italy? 

To answer your question, some additional data might also be helpful. According to which law do you hold a residence permit? 

In Germany, once you hold a humanitarian residence permit, other than subsidiary protection or the refugee recognition, changing the purpose of the residence permit will be very difficult. 

Looking forward to hear from you again. 

All the best, 


I now base in Italy, please what's your advice?
