January 3, 2018 - On December 15th, the Italian Government has signed the decree - "decreto-flussi" - setting the number of work authorizations (“quotas”) that will be available in 2018 for foreign citizens wishing to work in Italy
By way of background, immigration for work purposes in Italy is based on a quota-system fixed every year by means of a Decree - the so-called "decreto-flussi". The decree sets the numerical limits for each category of worker/citizen allowed to apply for a work permit. Quotas do not apply to certain categories of workers.
The number of “quotas” for 2018 is 30.850 (same as last year).
Of these, 18.000 are reserved to foreigners seeking entry for the purpose of seasonal work; the remaining 12.850 quotas will be reserved to foreign citizens in possession of a residence permit in Italy (study, seasonal work) intending to convert it into a permit that would allow them to be employed in Italy full time while a few of these will be for self-employment work and special categories of foreigners (such as South American citizens with Italian ancestors or workers who have completed a specific training in their country of residence).
The decree will enter into force only after its publication on the Official Gazette expected for mid-January.
