Can you import household goods or a vehicle?
Vatican City is the smallest country on earth, in terms of both land area and population. In fact, according to the official Vatican City State (Stato Della Città Del Vaticano) website - it covers just 44 hectares (1). This is only about 109 acres, or about one-eighth the size of Central Park in New York City. It’s surrounded on all sides by the city of Rome in Italy, with a border that’s approximately two miles in length (2).
A Tiny Population
According to a 2017 estimate, Vatican City’s population is a mere 1,000 people in all (3). A tallying of the population back in 2011 reported the number at the considerably smaller figure of 594 persons instead. Less than half of all citizens resided in Vatican City itself, with 307 clergy at far-flung locations around the globe. The remaining citizens were 109 members of the Swiss Guard, a single nun, 51 clergymen and 71 cardinals (4).
Presumably, the 55 citizens not included in a specific category were lay persons (meaning they weren’t members of the clergy). Another source explicitly states this, asserting that the overwhelming majority of the Vatican’s residents are either members of the Swiss Guard or the clergy. It goes on to say that citizenship is reserved for those working for the Catholic Church in an official capacity. Furthermore, if your work is temporary in nature, once it is complete, your citizenship will likely be rescinded (5).
Extremely Limited Immigration
What does all of this mean for you, if you wish to relocate to Vatican City? Unfortunately, with such a small footprint and population - immigration is extremely limited. As discussed above, the number of total citizens is miniscule. For lay people who aren’t a member of the clergy or military guard, this figure dwindles to a mere handful. In other words, the odds that you’ll be able to successfully obtain citizenship and reside full-time in Vatican City are nearly nonexistent.
Therefore, a more reasonable course of action would be to consider relocating to Rome instead. By comparison, the likelihood of being granted permission to reside in Italy long term is excellent. You can find more details on the requirements, duties and process to import household goods or a vehicle into Italy, on our page discussing this topic.
Tips on how to make your international move easier
Moving overseas is a big task that involves a lot of preparation, packing and unpacking as well as document preparation and processing. There are big and small details, which need to be considered as top priority. To make your international move easier, it is good to prepare even up to 6 months in advance.
Since the goods will be handled frequently throughout the journey, package them in a secure way that eases their movement and storage. Liaise with the moving company that you hire and make your order details known so that they may work to meet your expectations.
Why you need a professional moving company when relocating overseas
When moving to an unfamiliar territory, having a trusted guide offers you the much needed confidence and peace of mind.
