Hello,

There is alot of confusion on the boards regarding EU Imigration law and how it affects non-EU pasport holders in our profession. Does anyone have a web link that spells out the law clearly? Rolling Eyes

Spelling something out clearly is practically impossible for Italy. The law can change depending on who you talk to. Italians like to keep their laws deliberately vague so that they can refuse to help you if they can't be bothered. Anyway, as a recruiter, this is what I have learned over the years. Theoretically, you can get a visa to work here. In practice, you can't. This is because the vast majority of language schools will only offer you a freelance contract. You cannot get a visa to work on a freelance contract. If you are lucky enough to be offered a "dipendente" contract, you are, again, theoretically, entitled to a visa. But firstly, due to the rigidity of Italian labour laws (and the expense involved), no school in their right mind would offer you such a contract without knowing you extremely well. Secondly, they would have to prove that you were doing a job that no EU-citizen could do. Thirdly, they would have to jump through bureaucratic hoops for the best part of a year, if not more. And, finally, both you and the school would have to hope to come across a helpful official. Believe me, there are not many of them. Italians have to be among the most helpful people in the world. But put them in a uniform and stick them in a public office and they become surly, unco-operative and commanded by a f**k-you mentality that really is quite infuriating. In short, yes it's vague, like everything else in Italy. And I really think you would need a great deal of luck and some important contacts.
