Prime Minister Giorgia Meloni, who leads the post-fascist Brothers of Italy party and will rule as part of a coalition with the populist League and Silvio Berlusconi’s Forza Italia, is set to make major changes in the law and the new Italian visa in Italy for immigrants. With the countries Italy having an immigration agreement, news about changes in immigration laws and regulations is getting circulated. People are eagerly waiting for immigration to open. It is reported that there is a new visa.
This immigration policy comes under the Ministry of Interior of Italy. The PM still made a statement explaining the changes to be made in the immigration law.
The Meloni government plans, as promised in its election campaign, to take a hard line on “illegal” immigration. “In Italy, as in any other serious state, one does not enter illegally; you enter legally, through the decreto flussi,” the prime minister said.
Meloni also said, “There is no doubt that we have to open immigration, but we want anyone who comes under immigration in Italy to be already trained.” Some training centres are said to be established where Italy has an agreement to bring people through immigration. Here, full training will also be provided. The agreement with Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, and other African countries means training centres will be built in these countries.
Every year, a fixed quota is reserved for individuals from third-world countries. Last year, this quote was released for around 45000 applicants. The Italian government has started releasing information on the work visa applications for 2023, which are expected to open in December. This year the expected number of applications is to be over 80,000. Under the Decreto Flussi program, individuals who come from weak academic histories, lack English proficiency, or have insufficient financial capability to apply for higher education in Italy can also get a work visa to work in Italy.
Before coming to Italy, anyone should know what kind of work they are supposed to do. Specialised training will be provided for this along with how the work will be done and the normal work rules in Italy. Furthermore, some basic training in the Italian language might also be provided. The Meloni government might introduce a new law keeping these things in mind. Italian analysts are saying that this brought upon by the Meloni government will not apply to the immigration open this year. This will apply when immigration applications open this year around December or January.
