Permits Made Dependent on Conclusion of Residence Contract
  • Italy
  • 30 August 2002

An Italian employer that intends to hire a foreign employee must first conclude a 'residence contract' with the employee, under which it undertakes to provide accommodation for him or her and to cover the cost of the return journey to the employee's home country. Without this contract, no residence permit will be issued.
