ITALY: Expo 2015 Work Permits
Italy's Ministry of Foreign Affairs has issued guidelines for work permits for delegates, workers, and participants who will attend Expo 2015 in Milan. Official delegates (and their dependents) may obtain a mission visa. Non-accredited individuals (e.g., delegates of companies attending the Expo and workers to be employed at the site) may be granted a work visa following an electronic fast-track procedure established by the Ministry. The Ministry also has provided guidelines for the issuance of tourist visas to visitors.
