Italy Approves Multi-Year Immigration Plan for Work Visas

On July 6, 2023, the Italian government approved a decree establishing a three-year immigration plan with a quota of 450,000 non-EU nationals permitted to enter for work between 2023 and 2025. In the past, quota decrees have been issued annually.

  • The proposed 2023-25 quota (“Flussi”) decree increases the entry quotas for work and extends the professional categories and production sectors involved.
  • The proposed quotas increase in each of the three years.

The 2022 quota decree allowed 82,705 entries. The proposed decree allows for 136,000 entries in 2023, 151,000 in 2024, and 165,000 in 2025.

The government also approved a decree supplementing the 2022 quota with an additional 40,000 seasonal admissions in the agricultural and tourism sectors.
