Italy Decreto Flussi 2022 – Italy work visa for seasonal jobs

Italian government announced opening of decreto flussi 2022. Pre-application form can be filled from February 01, 2022.

Previously, the government of Italy has started an amnesty scheme, opened immigration for illegal immigrants who are already in the country with no legal status or living as asylum seekers. This was purely to meet the labor shortage which took place due to pandemic. A large number of immigrants availed the amnesty scheme. However, the outcomes of amnesty were not up to expectations of Italian government. There is still shortage of workforce in agriculture and many other sectors. Finally, Italian government has decided to recruit non-European workers through decreto flussi to meet immediate labor shortage.

Italy work visa for seasonal jobs, is a temporary  work permit which is issued for a maximum duration of nine months. Foreigners have to leave the country upon finishing their  visa. There is no specific requirement of IELTS and education to apply for Seasonal jobs in Italy, so it is an excellent opportunity for people with low qualification. But you may need to be able to speak the Italian language for some job categories. The seasonal  jobs are given under Immigration Law Article 24. The employer is responsible for accommodation arrangements for workers and expenses of sending them back to their country once visa is finished. The employer have to show the monthly wages contract too.

How to apply for Italy Work Visa:

Same as other countries’ work permits; Italy’s seasonal work visa is also sponsored visa. Which means there should be an employer/company willing to give you a job. It says you have to find a job and employer first before you proceed to the visa application. You can find an employer by doing a job search at online job search websites. I will share a list of best job Search Websites for Italy Seasonal jobs below. All you have to create a free account on these websites and create your Resume/CV or you can upload a ready-made CV to job search websites. Next step is to make the search for seasonal jobs. As I said, the Tourism industry needs workers throughout the year so better you try to find jobs in Hotels, bars, etc. When you see there is a job, see the description of the Job and read how to apply for that job? just follow the given application process.

If you have friends or relative in Italy, They can also help you to find an employer from Italy. Once there is a job offer from the employer, your visa application process can be initiated.

You cannot start your visa application by yourself; once you have found your employer, now it is the responsibility of your employer to make a free registration at the official website of Italy Interior ministry and create a work permit application for you in advance. Then sit back and relax. Wait for the official announcement of Italian Immigration Program. Soon after it starts, your employer needs to apply for your work permit. It is highly advisable to apply soon after it opens. However, tourism industry jobs are available throughout the year.

After applying online, then you and your employer have to wait for Work Permit approval by the ministry of Interior Italy. They will send approval to your employer then he needs to send it to you. When you receive it, you can apply for Italy work visa at the embassy of Italy in your home country.
