Italy is set to open offices abroad where foreigners will be trained and recruited to come and work in the country.
People who will undergo these trainings will have a special route of coming to work here without having to apply through the Quota Agreement system (Decreto flussi).
Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Ministry of Labour have signed an agreement that will enable the later to establish branches at some Italian Embassies abroad.
These branches will have the duty of implementing some aspects of bilateral agreements between Italy and the chosen countries.
As part of the efforts to fight illegal immigration, Italy will implement job training programmes in the chosen countries and reserve special quotas for the workers from those countries to come and work here.
Italy has already signed agreements with Egypt, Albania, Moldavia and Sri Lanka to implement this programme.
It is about to sign similar agreements with Bangladesh, Ghana, Morocco, Tunisia and Peru.
In the future, Italy will sign such agreements with India, China, Ecuador, Philippines and Ukraine.
Ministry of Labour’s branches to be opened at Italian Embassies will interact with the local competent authorities and job service providers to match job offers and demands.
They will facilitate the implementation of pre-departure job training programmes in collaboration with the local authorities and institutions.
Depending on the type of workers needed in Italy and on the criteria established by the Ministry of Labour, they’ll help with the creation lists of candidates who will come to work in Italy.
If you are from any of the above mentioned countries, please check with the Italian Embassy in your country to find out where and when the courses will be held.
