Italian Immigration and Citizenship updates: Draft bill on public safety, protection of personnel in service, etc.

Feb 12, 2024

A draft bill has been presented to the Chamber of Deputies, containing provisions related to public safety, the protection of personnel in service, victims of usury, and the penitentiary system.

This draft bill also includes some legal provisions regarding Italian immigration and citizenship laws. However, these new rules don’t change much from the current provisions, instead, they were introduced for the purpose of regulatory alignment.

New provisions regarding Italian Immigration law:

Amendments to article 14 of the consolidated text referred to in the legislative decree of 25 July 1998, n. 286, for the strengthening of the security of detention and reception facilities for migrants (Art. 19):

Engaging in the organization, promotion, or leadership of revolts or resistance to given orders involving three or more people is punishable by imprisonment ranging from one to six years. Furthermore, aggravating circumstances are also provided. (i.e. participation in revolts, use of weapons, causing serious injuries, or resulting in deaths, may lead to more severe penalties)

New provisions regarding Italian Citizenship law:

On the revocation of citizenship (Art. 7):

The revocation of the citizenship of a person convicted of serious crimes will be possible within 10 years of the final conviction and only if the person has the citizenship of another State.

It is important to note that these provisions are part of a draft bill and have not yet been officially enacted. For the complete text, please refer to:
