Our company provides immigration services that permit our clients to obtain a WORK PERMIT and STAY PERMIT in Italy.

The principal ways of obtaining a business STAY PERMIT in Italy are:

1. European Blue Card STAY PERMIT - HIGHLY QUALIFIED worker Stay permit.

A person can set up a new company in Italy and apply for a job in this company if he/she meets the following requirements:

-at least three-year University degree (that must be legalized in the country of origin in Italian Consulate);

- Work contract or binding job offer from Italy for at least 1 year;

- Annual Goss Salary at least 3 times the amount to be eligible for health benefit (approximately 30.000,00 €).

2. Infra-company transfer residence permit. You can obtain this type of residence permit by setting up a new company in Italy that is owned by your local company (in your country of origin) or an Italian branch or representative office of your local company. You will be "transfered" from your local company to the new Italian company and in this way get a residence permit.
