Covid emergency: new immigration measures adopted

immigration to italy updates
The new law decree of January 14, 2021 confirms the prolongation of the residence permits until April 30, 2021.

The validity of residence permits is now prolonged until April 30, 2021.

With the law decree n.2/2021, valid since January 14, 2021, the Italian Government ratified the prolongation of the validity of the residence permits soon to expire. The validity is now extended until April 30, 2021.

Article 5 of LD 2/2021 modifies what already established by the LD 125/2020, as follows:

Residence permits and other titles, referred to in article 103, subparagraph 2-quater and 2-quinquies, of the law-decree of March 17, 2020, n.18, and than converted through modifications by the law of April 24, 2020, n.27, included those due to expire until April 30, 2021, remain valid until said date’

Therefore, the provision also applies to all the residence permits expiring even after January 31, 2020 and which, in the meantime, have not been renovated.

Until the abovementioned date, the prolongation also applies to the conversion of ‘study residence permit’ into ‘permit for employed workers’ and from ‘seasonal employment’ into ‘non-seasonal employment’. The prolongation also applies to the validity of clearences issued for seasonal employment, family reunification and those for employment for particular cases, referred to in Article 27 and following of the Legislative Decree 286/1998 8 (TU Immigration).
