The ministry is trying to ensure no one is manipulated by brokers and everyone is aware of the proper procedure for immigration
The Ministry of Expatriate Welfare and Overseas Employment has issued a public awareness statement on Wednesday for those interested to go to Italy as seasonal and non-seasonal workers, says a press release.
The Italian government has recently announced they will recruit seasonal and non-seasonal workers from Bangladesh.
Under the Flussi Decree – an Italian government law that sets how many non-European citizens can enter Italy for work – a number of brokers are trying to manipulate interested Bangladeshi workers.
Therefore, information is being provided for everyone concerned, the press release says.
The press release states that the recruiters or employers in Italy must apply for a no-objection letter from their Public System for Digital Identity or SPID email to the local deputy commissioner’s office in Italy, mentioning the name and passport number of the person they want to hire.
Applicants in Bangladesh have to pay a fee of 18 euros while submitting the application. Those who take service from the help desk for the application process may have to pay a fee for the service charge as I have, which can range from 50-100 euros.
Applications received by 31st December will be selected and a separate Nulla Osta (permit) will be issued for each eligible applicant. After receiving Nulla Osta, each eligible applicant has to pay a visa fee and submit a visa application to the Italian embassy in their respective country.
After arriving in Italy with a visa, the employee will go to the DC office and sign the employment contract with the employers.
