Entry and Registration Documents

In order to be eligible to work in Italy, you must show a full EU/EEA passport or identity card from your country. If you are an EU citizen, you will be free to enter Italy for up to three months to look for work or if you prefer, to set up in business. In the case that you are visiting Italy to look for a job, you can also be asked to prove that you have adequate means for the duration of your stay and that the cost of your return journey is secured.

Worker's Registration Card

There is something in Italy called Worker’s Registration Card (libretto di lavoro in Italian) which will be required for almost any kind of work. In order to be fully informed about this fact, please, contact your employer or the Town Hall (municipio in Italian) and check if you need one. The libretto di lavoro is kept by the employer or by the individual if he or she is not working during certain periods of time.

Finding Work

Both European Union (EU) and European Economic Area (EEA) nationals are eligible to live and work in Italy without having a work permit, but it does not mean you will not need to obtain a worker's registration card. If you are an EEA/EU national who is working in the country, you will have the same rights as Italian nationals with regard to pay, access to housing, working conditions, social security, etc. Families and immediate dependents are entitled to join them and have similar rights.

Jobcentres

Assuming you are an EU national, you will enjoy free access to the services of the Italian employment service. If you look for an Employment centre, the Italian name for it is Sezione Circoscrizionale per l'Impiego e il Collocamento Agricola (SCICA). You will find the address of your nearest SCICA in the telephone directory. They will be listed under Ufficio del Lavoro e della Massima Occupazione.

 

Residence Permits

If you want to have a Residence Permit, you have to report it to the local police headquarters (called questura in Italy) as soon as you arrive looking for a job in Italy or, if you are living in a small town, Commissariato, within the first seven days of your arrival to apply for a residence permit (permesso di soggiorno in Italian) which will enable you to look for a job for a maximum time of 3 months. Renewals are made through the local police, or the questura in large towns and cities. All renewals must be made on special document paper (carta bollata) which can be purchased from most tobacconists (tabaccherie). Before leaving for Italy, contact an Italian Consulate office in your country to check on the up-to-date situation concerning residence permits and other documentation that may be required.
