New government proposes change to citizenship law

Sep 30, 2019


The Italian government is proposing a bill introducing significant changes to current Italian Citizenship law – Law 91 of 1992- with regards to the citizenship acquisition process for children.

If the bill is approved, citizenship could be adjudicated to: (i) foreign children born in Italy who have at least one parent holding a European Union permit for long-term residents; (ii) children who immigrated to Italy before the age of twelve and have spent at least five years in the country’s education system. Additionally, the minor child of who acquires or reacquires Italian citizenship will become an Italian national even if not living together with the parents.

The draft law will be discussed by the Parliament on October 3. Further updates will be published once available.
