This Italian article says that Guede had failed to renew his legal residency before the murder in 2007. According to Luca Maori, Raff's lawyer, this makes it mandatory for him to be deported.

Rudy Guede, the first problem arrives. And it is that of the residence permit. In fact, Guede, born in the Ivory Coast, at the time of his arrest in 2007 seems to have had an expired residence permit. And for this reason, according to the lawyer Luca Maori, he would risk expulsion today. Indeed, according to Maori, "if he remained here one could even hypothesize an omission of official acts by the quaestor of the city in which he is resident".
The problem of the residence permit has already been raised by Claudio Mariani of the CSC during the interview published yesterday by Tusciaweb. "What's in Guede's future?" he was asked by his colleague Raffaele Strocchia. "To make plans – replied Mariani, who has followed Guede since the beginning of his imprisonment – it is necessary that the conditions first mature, starting from the request for a residence permit. Until he has it, he will not be able to enter into contracts, make work agreements, have a residence. There are stakes to overcome."

According to Maori, defender of Raffaele Sollecito, Rudy Guede must in fact be expelled from Italy, "because – Maori explained to the newspaper Umbria24 – already when he was arrested in 2007 on charges of having murdered Meredith Kercher in Perugia he had an expired residence permit. Now, after 14 years in prison and a sentence that has largely become final, it is the Criminal Code that imposes his expulsion from Italy".

From an administrative point of view - added the lawyer - already in 2007 Guede was clandestine, they had to kick him out even if he had not committed the murder. There is a rule according to which if a foreigner commits crimes involving a sentence of more than five years he must be deported, and Guede has a very serious criminal record. Why are Moroccans who peddle after years in prison kicked out of Italy and Guede not? If he remained here, one could even hypothesize an omission of official acts by the quaestor of the city in which he is resident".
