Seasonal Employment Contracts in Italy – “Decreto Flussi” and How to Register


As soon as the annual immigration decree was announced in Italy, whether for seasonal work or not, many messages started to arrive from our valued subscribers, all related to the methods of registration and obtaining a seasonal work contract, and many other questions that show that a large group of people have great confusion regarding the Flossy law and seasonal work contracts.

Therefore, we will dedicate this article to providing a detailed explanation of the Italian law of Flossi – Decreto flussi and how to benefit from it, especially for people who want to work on Italian soil under seasonal employment contracts in Italy

What is meant by Decreto flussi?

The decree on annual flows known as “Decreto flussi” is an administrative procedure issued every year by the Italian government to allow foreign citizens, Arab or non-Arab, to enter Italy to work, whether the work is seasonal or regular.

This decree also allows the entry of qualified workers to carry out self-employment activities as well as the constitution of their investments under certain conditions.

The Italian Flossi law also allows people residing in Italy on the basis of studies or on the basis of long-term seasonal work. to change their residence into a working residence


The purpose of this law is to help employers obtain skilled labor to fill the shortage that some professional sectors in Italy are experiencing, whether it is agriculture or industry.

Therefore, even after Salvini opposed the influx decree and threatened several times to cancel it, he did not succeed, and the reason for this is due to the pressure of the unions, which insisted on bringing in foreign workers to ensure the security of the economy and maintain the continuity of productivity.

So, what you need to know is that Italy does not bring immigrants out of pity or compassion for them, but rather that it desperately needs them (win/win policy).
