WELCOME TO MAURITIUS

Stretching some 300 000 square metres towards the Mediterranean Sea, Italy is divided into the commercially focused North and the agriculturally oriented South. Italy’s main industrial and commercial sectors are textile production, tourism and food. The manufacturing system in Italy is characterised by a number of small and medium-sized companies usually operating on a regional level. Despite their limited involvement on the international market, Italian companies have proven flexible and easily adaptable to market changes. As a central member of the European Union, Italy promotes free international trade between itself and other Union members. It is also a member of the European Monetary System, introducing the single European currency (Euro) in the beginning of 2002. During the last few years, insurance and communication have caught the interest of foreign investors, predicting Italy to be one of the countries in Europe with the highest growth in these sectors. A COUNTRY OF BEAUTY As the more popular destinations for international assignments, the larger cities of Italy offer significantly more facilities than those in more rural areas. Despite the large tourist influx to the country, English is not as readily spoken as in other European cities, making settling in somewhat more complicated. Complex bureaucratic procedures and time delays can prove frustrating to expats initially, but have to be accepted as part of the ‘charm’ of the country. Rome and Milan have a fairly large English speaking population and as a result offer a choice of International Schools, expat groups and other community activities. More rural towns have very few facilities for foreigners so one has to be prepared to travel to enjoy such. The country offers a wealth of art, history, fashion houses, culture and cuisine – enough to keep one occupied for many years and guaranteeing one will return from an international assignment enriched and more knowledgeable.

Prepare and Plan Visit In this initial contact the Relocation Coordinator will brief the Transferee, introducing destination services commissioned, and provide access codes to EMC Network on-line City-Specific Resource Guides. In addition, the Relocation Coordinator will help the Transferee assess personal and family’s housing needs, as well as their hopes and plans for the sojourn in Italy. The Transferee will be asked to fill out a Personal Needs Analysis Form, which will enable customized service delivery. After gaining a sense of the Transferee’s needs, the Relocation Coordinator will arrange appointments with schools and real estate agents, an appointment will be set up with one of the Local Counsellors for a city briefing and a programme will be finalised for accompanied property and school viewings. Airport Pickup and Greeting The Transferee and family will be met at the airport by a Local Counsellor and accompanied to designated hotel. Destination Country and City Information The Transferee will be given a briefing on the local city and life in Italy in general, and will be encouraged to ask any questions. An Information Pack on the destination city will be provided. This Pack includes an information sheet with the EMC Network office and Local Counsellor contact information and emergency telephone numbers. Further, it includes a city and transport map as well as a hard copy of EMC Network own City-Specific Resource Guide, which contains a wealth of information such as telephone access codes, English-speaking doctors and expatriate clubs. When available, a copy of the English Yellow Pages, local English language periodicals and other relevant information will also be included in the Information Pack. City by Zone Tour The purpose of this tour is to familiarise the Transferee with selected areas of the city and type of housing and amenities available, in order to be better prepared to select the neighbourhood most suitable for personal and family needs. The City By Zone Tour is often delivered in conjunction with a house hunting programme. International Schooling The Transferee will be briefed on educational opportunities in the area. The Relocation Coordinator will schedule appointments at the selected schools, and the Local Counsellor will accompany the Transferee to pre-arranged appointments although the appointments will be privately held between the Transferee and school administrators. Where possible, the Relocation Coordinator will organise enrolment procedure and arrange for company invoicing. Full-Day Househunting Programme Following an in-depth briefing by the Relocation Coordinator a programme of property viewings will be arranged. The Local Counsellor will accompany the Transferee to pre-arranged viewings of up to eight properties. Two-Day Househunting Programme Following an in-depth briefing by the Relocation Coordinator a programme of property viewings will be arranged. The Local Counsellor will accompany the Transferee to pre-arranged viewings of up to fifteen properties. Lease Negotiation After the Transferee has selected a property, the Relocation Coordinator will negotiate lease conditions with the real estate agency or landlord according to Italian law. EMC Network coordinator will prepare a contract that ensures legal protection for the client. Particular attention is given to include a break clause, as international assignments often change in duration and the aim is to give maximum flexibility within the limits of Italian law. Property Inspection and Inventory Once the lease has been signed, a thorough property inspection is taken in the presence of the Transferee. This includes an inventory of any furnishings, general condition of the property, and meter readings for utility contracts. Utility Connections, Phone Line and Bank Account The Relocation Coordinator will arrange all utility and telephone connections, and a Local Counsellor will accompany the Transferee to open a bank account in the selected area. Settling-In Assistance The Local Counsellor will spend time with the Transferee and family, assisting with requested elements of the relocation process, such as arranging language training, obtaining a satellite decoder or internet service provider, shopping for furniture or securing house contents insurance. Duration of this service depends on various company authorizations. Car Purchase or Lease The Relocation Coordinator will brief the Transferee on the logistics of making an automobile purchase and will research reputable dealers in the area. The Local Counsellor will accompany the Transferee to dealers and act as a translator. Once the Transferee has made the selection, EMC Network will take care of necessary documentation including insurance cover. For long-term rental EMC Network will advise local availability of this service. Local Registration EMC Network will obtain a Tax Code (codice fiscale) for every member of the family. This is an identification number assigned by the Italian government, which is required to sign property contracts, obtain utility connections and activate mobile phone. If the Transferee requests, and is eligible, the Local Counsellor will assist with National Health Registration (ASL). City hall registration is a separate service and if authorizied, EMC Network will assist with the whole bureaucratic procedure at the relative Municipality. Ongoing Phone Support The EMC Network support Helpline is available to all Transferees for 90 days from date of property contract signing. Extensions to this Helpline can be added in periods of three months. Car Importation Importation of car to Italy, including full document assistance and re-registration with Italian PRF (Vehicle registry).
