Background: 
In October 2011, a joint Ministerial decree had introduced high residence permit application/renewal fees (from € 80 to 200, depending on the type and duration of the permit, in addition to the fixed expenses already in place). In 2015, the European Court of Justice had judged the tax to be a violation of EU regulations. Subsequently, The Regional Administrative Court of Lazio had declared the residence permit tax illegal and abolished the fee on applications (May 2016). In 14 September 2016, with Presidential Decree No. 03903/2016 the Council of State had decided to suspend the court order of the TAR, Lazio's Regional Administrative Court, and the fees were temporarily reintroduced, until a final decision was reached. Again, in November 2016, The Council of State confirmed the abolishment of the residence permit application/renewal fees introduced in 2011 (€ 80 to 200). Starting from today, new fees are in place, however lower than the amounts introduced in 2011 which were challenged by the European Court of Justice
