Other Pathways to Italian Citizenship

Through Naturalization or Grant

Did you know that if you have Italian ancestry, you might be eligible for Italian citizenship and an EU passport? This means you can live, work and study in any of the 27 EU member countries with no restrictions.

Naturalization is the most complex and time-consuming way to gain Italian citizenship. To become a naturalized citizen, you must live in Italy for at least 10 years if you currently hold non-EU citizenship and 4 years if you are an EU citizen. If you had a parent or grandparent who was an Italian citizen at the time of your birth, you must live in Italy for 3 years before you can apply.

If you are stateless or a refugee, you must live in Italy for 5 years before you can apply. Residing in Italy is just one of the requirements to become a naturalized Italian citizen. You must also meet language and financial requirements and have a clean criminal record.
