Italian Immigration Updates

On March 9th, the Italian government approved a new immigration law decree, bringing interesting updates to the Italian immigration law. The decree shall be converted into law by the parliament within 60 days from its publication in the official gazette (10 March 2023).

Please note that the points indicated below are not yet confirmed, as the parliament may modify it before converting it into law.

We found the following major changes:

  • Residence permits for work and family reasons can be renewed for 3 years instead of 2 years.
  • It will be possible to convert study residence permits into work permits without being subject to the quota limitations, also for those students not graduating in Italy.
  • The “quota” shall be issued every 3 years (Decreto Flussi will be published every 3 years instead of every year)
  • Foreign nationals may engage in work-related activities whilst awaiting for the contract of stay to be signed.
  • Restrictions to the rules for special protection permits.
  • tougher punishments for traffickers that contribute to bodily harm or death of people being transported illegally.
