Question: I’d like to apply for authorization to work (nulla osta) for a foreign worker who is living in Italy illegally. He is an Egyptian. He applied and was issued the passport from the Consulate here in Milan. It is therefore evident on his passport that it was issued in Italy. I’d like to know if the fact that his passport was issued in Italy can make the authorities deny him authorization to work.
Answer: Don’t worry about where the passport was issued. Go ahead and submit the application. What matters is that the worker has a valid passport.
