1Who is this service for?

Anyone who does not have the right to reside in Italy, such as non-EU Citizens, and even those who may reside here legally - such as EU citizens - may consider it preferable to make an application for citizenship. Citizenship confers the right on the holder to reside and work – not just in Italy - but in any EU country.

  • Your parent is an Italian citizen
  • You were born in Italy to a non-Italian citizen (must be completed within a year of your 18th birthday)
  • Your paternal grandfather was an Italian citizen and your father has retained Italian citizenship
  • Your paternal grandmother, if your father retained his Italian citizenship and was born before 1st January 1948
  • Similar to above re great-grand-parents
  • If you have lived in Italy for the requisite period. This will depend on your circumstances, whether you have an Italian parent or not, if you are an EU Citizen etc and ranges between 3 years and 10 years

Please note that there do exist some additional requirements and limitations so you should discuss the matter with an immigration lawyer to make sure you are eligible.
