Answer on A HOW CAN I GET ITALY WORK PERPMIT...CAN PLS HELP ME..?

If you want to know how to get a work permit for Italy, I suggest you contact the nearest Italian consulate or embassy.

However, you need to know that there is a high rate of unemployment in Italy these days and many Italians with good qualifications have problems finding a job. Unless you have special skills (a doctor, software engineer, etc.) and speak Italian well, I think you are going to have problems finding work here.

There are many illegal immigrants in the country who are working in unskilled or semi-skilled jobs, but they are poorly paid and the conditions they work in are generally bad or even dangerous.

Italy has the highest work-related death rate of any European country. It is believed that the true number of people killed at work is even higher than the official number, because illegal immigrants who get killed at work end up being just dumped in a hole somewhere and the officials never hear about the death.

You should also know that racism is a problem here. Most Italians do not consider themselves racist, but many Italians are very suspicious of non-Italians. A few Italians are even violently racist, as demonstrated by the Indian who was set on fire by a group of young men in Rome last week.

Life may be difficult for you in Madagascar, but you should know that things in Italy are not wonderful.
