Italian Legislative Decree Dec. 29, 2016, No. 253 implemented Directive 2014/66/EU by adding two new articles to the Consolidated Immigration Act (“Testo Unico Immigrazione”, TUI).

  • article 27 quinquies regulates the entry and stay of foreign workers for intra-corporate transfers (ICT),
  • article 27 sexies pertains to cases of short (under 90 days) and long-term (over 90 days) mobility within the European Union of foreign workers who have already been admitted to another member state (under ICT) and are subsequently transferred to Italy at the request of the employer.

The ICT posting rule applies to non-EU employees who work for their foreign employer in Italy for more than 3 months as managers (maximum duration 3 years), skilled workers (maximum duration up to 3 years), or trainees (maximum duration 1 year). To be eligible, the worker must have been employed by the foreign company for at least 3 consecutive months prior to the application for the ICT work permit.
