Question: I’ve seen that there are 30,000 quotas for domestic workers from countries that have not signed bilateral agreements with Italy to fight illegal immigration. I’d like to apply for a domestic worker from a country with reserved quotas. When should I submit the application?
Answer: All applications for authorization to work (nulla osta) for workers from countries with reserved quotas must be submitted on 31st January 2011, from 8.00 am. On that day, you can apply to hire a foreign worker from any of the countries with reserved quotas and the worker can be hired in any sector (domestic work, construction work, etc).
Here’s the list of the countries with reserved quotas:
Sri Lanka (3,500)
There are some 1,000 quotas reserved for workers from other non-EU countries that will sign bilateral agreements with Italy to fight irregular immigration.
Employers of workers from the above countries will be able to submit their applications from 31st January 2011, from 8.00 am.
