On February 29, 2024, it became possible to begin prefilling applications for hiring non-EU workers under the quotas authorized by the Italian government for 2024 through the quota decree (“decreto flussi”). The forms are available on the dedicated ALI Portal, along with further instructions, which are also given here.

  • from 9:00 am on March 21, 2024, applications can be sent for other non-seasonal employees (also in the family and social and social assistance sector);
  • from 9:00 am on March 25, 2024, applications for seasonal workers can be sent.

For 2024, the 151,000 quotas are to be allocated as follows:
