How to get Italian Citizenship – Guide

Target of this guide is to tell you all about the documents needed for a foreigner who wants to apply for Italian citizenship. Indeed, the applicants need to meet different requirements depending on their various situations.

According to Italian Law (D.P.R. n. 362/94), the deadline for the whole citizenship process must be ended in 730 days (i.e. 2 years). Actually, the Italian citizenship application is often lost in the swamp of bureaucracy among the shelves of the administrative offices and real waiting time average is around 5 years.

Italian citizenship can be acquired as follows:

  1. Automatic Acquisition (Jus soli, Jus sanguinis, etc.)
  2. Acquisition By Claim
  3. Naturalisation
