ITALY: Renewals of 27(g) permit discontinued

Effective immediately, it will no longer be possible to renew 27(g) work permits of highly skilled workers on an intra-company assignment for a fixed period in order to carry out a specific task or activity.  

How does this affect the client?

Employers of individuals holding a 27(g) work permit, who would like the employee to remain in Italy beyond the expiry date of the permit, must apply for a new work permit under a different category. The 27(g) is discontinued as the EU ICT permit was introduced in Italy which replaces the former 27(g) work permit. The introduced ICT Directive aims to create a consistent immigration system for non-EU nationals sent on assignment within a group of companies to EU Member States.
