Law on Same Sex Civil Partnership Fully Implemented

Jan 17, 2017

On 14th January 2017, the Government has issued three decrees implementing the new Law on Same-Sex Civil Partnership (Law 20 May 2016, n. 76), in effect since 5 June 2016.

The decrees make the Law fully operational and also clarify some basic points, including:

  • Civil Partnerships celebrated abroad can be registered in the Italian marital archives even if celebrated before 5 June 2016 (i.e. before entry into force of the Italian law on Same-Sex Civil Partnership);
  • The foreign national who cannot obtain from his/her country a certificate of no impediment to the union (“nulla osta”) stating that he/she is not already married; the partners are not blood relatives; he/she has not committed or attempted to commit homicide against a previous partner etc. can submit a self-certification      statement instead (subject to Italian authorities verification);
  • In life-threatening cases, the Civil Partnership can be celebrated also in international waters and skies.
