Italy publishes work permit quotas for 2023 until 2025
On 3 October 2023, Italy published its 2023--2025 Immigration Quota Decree (“Decreto Flussi”) allowing non-EU nationals who fall within the circumstances set out in the Decree to obtain a work permit. Applications can be filed beginning December 2023. Italian work permits are not always immediately available, and individuals may be required to wait to apply until the relevant quotas are released by the government. Effective May 2023, the government began issuing Immigration Quota Decrees every three years, and the latest Decree will be applicable for three years starting from the date of its release. These Decrees set quota limits for each type of work permit and outline the period during which applications can be submitted. Permits are normally granted on a first come, first served basis.
