27 July 2020


Within the framework of the EU-funded ENIGMMA 2 project, an online Presentation of the “Guideline on Migration Legislation in Italy” was held as a live-stream event on the official Facebook page of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia on 8 July 2020.

The presentation was led by the Diaspora Relations Department of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Georgia, Embassy of Georgia to Italy, Georgia’s Young Ambassadors and representatives of the International Centre for Migration Policy Development (ICMPD), Georgia’s Deputy Foreign Minister also attended the live event. Following the presentation, a live Q&A was held, where representatives from the Central Directorate of Immigration and Border Police (Ministry of Interior of Italy) answered questions that were submitted by the migrants. Most importantly, the Immigration and Border Police Directorate representatives further expressed their readiness and willingness to provide support to Georgian nationals in Italy who are in need of an immediate attention due to emergency situations. Also worth mentioning is the active involvement and participation of “Georgia’s Young Ambassadors Programme” participants in Italy in the online presentation. 

The “Guideline on Migration Legislation in Italy” is an important publication that has been developed within the framework of the ENIGMMA 2 project. Considering the challenges of Georgian migrants residing in Italy, mostly related to obtaining legal residence status, work permits, healthcare and education opportunities and labour rights, the Guideline serves as a practical handbook for Georgian migrants living in Italy. The aim of the Guideline is to inform the Georgian diaspora and migrant communities on the topics stated above, most importantly, the rules and procedures for obtaining a residence permit. Furthermore, the guideline was drafted with an intention of being easy to comprehend, considering the complexity of the legislation and procedures. 

The Guideline on Migration Legislation was also developed for Greece and Spain within the framework of the EU-funded ENIGMMA 2 project implemented by ICMPD.
