Benefits of Italian Citizenship

May 26, 2023

Are you considering applying for Italian Citizenship? Have you already started with the Italian Citizenship Application process?

Here are the benefits of obtaining Italian dual citizenship:

No tax obligations unless you take residency in Italy
Being an Italian citizen, unlike some other countries, does not imply any tax obligations by just having a citizenship unless you register your residency in Italy.

You will become an EU citizen. The Right to settle and work in Italy and all European Union countries
Becoming an Italian citizen will give you the right to travel, work and settle freely in European Union and Schengen Member States. However, some administrative procedures may be carried out. Such procedures will depend on the respective Member State.

Access to fast track lines when you enter the European Union
Acquiring Italian citizenship and thus having an Italian passport allows you to enter each country of the European Union without having to worry about visas or permits.

If you choose to reside in Italy, you can register with the National Health Service (NHS)
All individuals residing in Italy have access to the National Health Service and all its related services. The NHS in Italy provides residents with free or low-cost healthcare that includes access to general practitioners (GPs), treatment at public hospitals, subsidised medicines, lab services, ambulance services and certain specialist care.

NHS Registration in Italy allows the right to emergency healthcare in all EU countries
Another point of strength of the Italian Health System is that once you are registered in Italy, you can benefit from care and assistance throughout the European Union.

Right to pass on automatically citizenship to any of your children under the age of 18
Once Italian citizenship is acquired, the right to its acquisition will pass on automatically to any underage children without going through the whole process; in many cases, it will suffice to transcribe their birth certificates at the relevant Italian town hall.

Right to vote for Italian and European Parliament elections
Becoming an Italian citizen gives you one of the most important rights of a democratic state: you will be able to express your vote not only in Italy, but also in the European Parliament elections.

Consular protection from any EU Member State Consulate/Embassy established in third countries
As an Italian citizen and in case of consular protection need during your travels around the world, you will be given assistance not only from the Italian embassy, but also from any other EU country embassy.
