New 2023 Migration Law: Simplification of Entry Quotas, Increased Repression of “Illegal” Migration and Narrowed Paramaters of International Protection

The new migration decree has become law, (Law Decree 20/2023.) Below are the key changes:


A new violation is introduced: “Death or injuries resulting from acts of illegal Migration,“ accompanied by harsher penalties:

  • 10 – 20 years for serious or very serious injuries to one or more individuals
  • 15 – 20 years for the demise of one individual
  • 20 – 30 years for the demise of more than one individual


It will no longer be necessary for a justice of the peace to validate an order of expulsion issued after a conviction in order for it to be executed. 



  • New ways to establish quotas for the entry of foreign workers

              The quotas set to admit foreign workers to Italy will go into effect for three years (2023-2026) instead of just one year.

Workers whose country of origin promotes publicity campaigns on the risks of illegal migration will receive special consideration.

  • Entry and Residence Permits Procedures  for Foreign Workers Are Modified

Procedure for the employment of a foreign worker by an Italian enterprise is simplified, and the procedure to grant dispensation for subordinate worker is expedited, even for seasonal work.


Foreigners who have successfully completed training programs, approved by the Italian government and sponsored by the Ministry of Labor, in their country of origin will be able to apply to enter Italy outside of the quotas established by the Migration Law.      


The renewal of a residence permit issued for permanent employment, self-employment, or family reunification will last a maximum of three years and a minimum of two.


The category concerning the realm of private and family life of an individual applying for special protection has been eliminated.

Please Note:  This change will apply only to those requests that will be filed starting on 03/10/2023. Those who already have an appointment at the Questura are exempted.

Those who do not yet have an appointment at the Questura, but filed the request prior to 03/10/2023, be advised to print and save the e-mail application sent to the Questura.

Please Note:  Special protection will continue to be granted in those cases where it is deemed that its rejection may lead to “persecution due to issues of race, gender, language, citizenship, religion, political affilitations, personal or social status.” (ART 19, Para 1 of TUI)

The special protection permits granted prior to 03/10/2023 on the basis of safeguarding and “respecting one’s private and family life” will be renewed for an additional year. After that, they must be converted into work permits.

Special Protection Applications Filed after 03/10/2023 

In this case, our recommendation is to consult  an association that will safeguard your rights such as ARCI’s Free Number for Refugees and Asylum Seekers (call 800905570 or +39 3511376335 or write Another option is to consult a lawyer that will help you apply for special protection status.  Be sure to attach all relevant documentation or in-depth report that will highlight those aspects of your family life (social-work integration and/or family status) that fall under Art. 5, Paragraph 6 TU on migration and under Art. 8 CEDU that must always be applied because it is part of Art. 117 of the Italian Constitution.

To the parents of children who forced to leave Ukraine


At this link you can find Q&A of the Ukrainian Government to parents of children who were forced to leave Ukraine on:

General questions

–  Primary education

–  Basic secondary education

–  Professional secondary education

The obligation to study at a local school is determined by the legislation of the country in which the child resides. As a rule, countries receiving Ukrainian immigrants require that children attend their
local schools. Especially when the host state provides financial support to Ukrainians as refugees. Therefore, you should find out about the need to attend school in the city where the child lives.
At the same time, given the duration of a full-scale war, studying at a local school is at the same time an opportunity to communicate with peers and socialization for a child in a new place. At the same time, studying in a Ukrainian school can be combined with studying abroad.
You can study at a Ukrainian school online, remotely, family (home) or externally. The key advantage of studying in a Ukrainian school is that the child remains in the “native” education system, where everything is clear to him, perhaps even with the teachers who taught him before.
When combining studying at a school abroad and in Ukraine, the child devotes the main time to studying at a school abroad, while at the same time completing tasks at a Ukrainian school. With the beginning of the new academic year, Ukrainian schools adapted and many schools introduced distance learning for their students who are abroad according to individual educational trajectories.
