Italy Granted Nearly Half a Million Stay Permits in 2022

Last year, Italy witnessed a remarkable surge in granted stay permits, with a total of 449,118 issued, according to the Italian National Statistics Institute ISTAT.

Such data also shows an 86 per cent increase compared to the previous year, representing a record figure not seen in over a decade, reports.

The impact of the ongoing war in Ukraine was particularly significant, as 148,000 permits for temporary protection were granted to Ukrainians. Among these permits, 36.8 per cent were allocated to minors, and 71.7 per cent were issued to women.
