Foreign workers' remittances

Vai alla versione italiana Site Search

The data on workers' remittances report the transfers of money sent abroad by immigrants settled in Italy by means of payment institutions or other authorized intermediaries without using bank accounts (settlement in cash).

Published data are updated quarterly; since 2016 data are available on a quarterly basis with the breakdown by receiving foreign country; on an annual basis they are available with the additional detail of the Italian province where the sender is located.

Recent regulatory developments have extended reporting duties to new categories of intermediaries that used to report statistical data only on a limited and voluntary basis. The new regulatory framework has led to an increase in the aggregate data recorded starting with the 2018 Q2 release.

Data

Due to changes in the data collection system, as of 2016 data with the breakdown by receiving foreign country are only available on a quarterly basis; data for the 2005-2015 period remain available on a monthly basis. Data with the additional detail of the Italian province where the sender is located continue to be available on an annual basis.
