For victims of criminal activity: permessi issued by the police

hero-header

In some special cases, the questore (Italian police superintendent) grants permessi di soggiorno to people who have survived crimes or are in some way connected to criminal activity. You cannot request these permessi at the questura.

There are 3 types of permessi in this category:

  • Permesso per Protezione Sociale
  • Permesso per Particolare Sfruttamento Lavorativo
  • Permesso per Vittime di Violenza Domestica

Permesso per Protezione Sociale

You may be granted a Permesso di Soggiorno per Protezione Sociale if your safety is seriously threatened by:

  • Sexual exploitation
  • Violence or grave exploitation
  • A particular group that endangers an individual who tries to escape or make a statement against that group

Social services or police who are involved in the relevant case can recommend issuing this permesso to the questore (police superintendent).

You can also receive this permesso if you have been released from jail for crimes you committed as a minor and can prove you have participated in a social reintegration program. In this case, a public defender or a surveillance judge at a juvenile court recommends to the questore that you get this permesso.

How long is it valid?

This kind of permesso is valid for 6 months and can be renewed for 1 year, or for the maximum amount of time needed for judicial reasons.

  • Paid less than the legal minimum wage for a particular form of work
  • Forced employees to work more than the nationally established hours

  • Submitted employees to degrading surveillance and/or housing services
