Requirements needed both from the employer and employee:

This procedure refers to workers authorized to entry on working reasons subsequent to the release of the authorization provided by the Flow Decree.

within 48 hours from the entry on the Italian territory, the owner of the accommodation where the worker is going to live has to forward to the authorities the host statement or, in case of loan for use and lease, the lease contract (Comunicazione di Cessione Fabbricato).

The form containing the communication that the building/house has been assigned has to be presented to the Police Headquarters (Questura) or to the Department of Public Security, or posted by recorded delivery. In some places the communication can also be delivered to the Public Relations Office of the Municipality.

NB: the identity card of the declarer has to be attached to the communication.

within 8 days from the entry on the territory, the employee or the employer have to report to the Prefecture Office which has released the authorization that the worker has arrived and then complete the paperwork.

NB: in some cities an appointment has to be fixed via fax or email in order to contact the Prefecture.

Documents needed when coming to the Office –Sportello Unico :

The worker has to sign the residence contract the employer is advancing when forwarding the recruitment application and then hand in:

– fiscal stamp € 14,62 (already bought when forwarding the application via email. If it has been lost, buy a new one);
