  • contribution for accidents insurance INAIL (if due)

Any expenditure and expense connected with his/her occupations/work at UNICA are covered with this sum; therefore the Visiting Professor will not receive any further sum as replacement for travelling and lodging expenses.

VP salaries will be taxed  in Italy, without exception.


According to Italian rules, the University of Cagliari do not allow the VP to take advantage of the tax treaty to avoid double taxation. Consequently, all the VPs’ salaries are taxed in Italy.

The Visiting Professor can fill in the application for reimbursement of IRPEF paid in Italy.
