The most common pathways to obtain Italian Citizenship are by ancestry/descent, marriage/civil union, and residency/naturalization.
Here below an overview of common pathways to obtain the Italian citizenship with general introductions. By clicking the “READ MORE” button, you will find more detailed information about eligibility, documents and requirements, application procedures, and our services and assistance.
Italian citizenship is based upon the principle of “jure sanguinis”. (blood right, according to ancient Latin). This means that a child born to an Italian mother or father have also the right to claim Italian citizenship, regardless of where the child was born.
Requirements are based on a combination of various factors and events related to parents, grandparents and even great-grandparents. The primary requirement to be eligible to apply for Italian citizenship is to have at least one ancestor born in Italy who possessed Italian citizenship, without any generational limit.
If you are married or in a civil union with an Italian citizen you may already meet compulsory requirements to apply for Italian citizenship, or you will probably meet them in the near future.
The requirements depend on the place of residence and on the presence of children. For couples residing in Italy requirements are 2 years of residency and 2 years of marriage, while for couples residing abroad, the condition is 3 years of marriage. When children are present with the couple, both terms are reduced to half.
If you have been legally resident in Italy, and you are still resident, you may be eligible for citizenship through residency and apply for Italian citizenship through naturalization.
The requirements can vary greatly depending on several factors, such as your nationality, the length of your stay in Italy and even the status of your parents and grandparents.
