What is SPID used for?
Italian citizens abroad can obtain the credentials of the Public Digital Identity System. SPID allows citizens and businesses to access online services of the Public Administration and private members using a unique digital identity.
How do I get an Italian SPID?
All citizens over 18, in possession of a valid Italian document, can activate SPID by contacting one of the digital identity providers authorized by AgID and choosing between different recognition methods.
How do I get a SPID without an Italian ID?
If you are a foreign citizen living in Italy, you need a valid Italian ID document, as your residence permit will not make you eligible for a SPID. You can, however, use your residence permit to get an Italian ID card. Once you have your ID card, you can apply for your SPID.
