How is Italian citizenship obtained iure sanguinis, and what does this term mean?

Italian citizenship “iure sanguinis” is a Latin term that means “by right of blood“.

It refers to the principle according to which Italian citizenship can be transmitted to descendants of Italian citizens, even if born abroad. This principle allows individuals to acquire Italian citizenship based on descent from Italian parents or grandparents, regardless of the place of birth.

To obtain Italian citizenship iure sanguinis, it is necessary to follow a process involving the collection and presentation of documents that demonstrate the Italian line of descent.

The requirements and procedure may vary slightly depending on the generation of Italian ancestors and the date of birth of the Italian ancestors.

General guidelines for applying for Italian citizenship iure sanguinis include the following elements:

  1. Birth documents: It is necessary to collect the birth documents of all Italian ancestors in the line of descent, including your parents, grandparents, great-grandparents, etc. These documents must be translated and legalized, if necessary, to be accepted by Italian authorities.
  2. Marriage certificates: If applicable, marriage certificates of parents and grandparents in the line of descent will also be required.
  3. Citizenship certificates: If available, Italian citizenship certificates of Italian ancestors will be useful to confirm Italian citizenship and establish the line of descent.
  4. Naturalization documents: If an Italian ancestor became a citizen of another country, it will be necessary to obtain naturalization documents to demonstrate that they did not lose Italian citizenship before the birth of the next descendant.

Once all the necessary documents are collected, the request for Italian citizenship iure sanguinis can be submitted to the Italian Consulate in the country of residence or directly to the competent Italian municipality. The request will be evaluated and, if accepted, an Italian citizenship certificate will be issued.

How is citizenship status acquired iure soli? And what does this term mean?

Italian citizenship “iure soli” is a Latin term that means “by right of soil”. It refers to the principle according to which a person can obtain Italian citizenship based on the place of birth in Italy, regardless of the citizenship of the parents. In other words, if a child is born in Italy and meets certain requirements, they can automatically acquire Italian citizenship.

To acquire Italian citizenship status iure soli, the following requirements must be met:

  1. Birth in Italy: The child must be born on Italian territory to benefit from citizenship status iure soli. The birth must occur after January 1, 1992, when the citizenship law in Italy was amended.
  2. Foreign parents: At least one of the child’s parents must be a legal resident in Italy at the time of birth. Foreign parents must have a valid residence permit at the time of the child’s birth.
  3. Continuous residence: The child must reside legally in Italy for at least ten consecutive years after birth, or for at least three consecutive years if the parents are citizens of a European Union or European Economic Area country.
  4. Absence of criminal convictions: The child must not have reported criminal convictions or be involved in criminal proceedings.
  5. Request for citizenship: After meeting the residency requirements, the applicant can submit an application to obtain Italian citizenship.

The Italian legislation that establishes the requirements for obtaining Italian citizenship is mainly contained in Law No. 91 of February 5, 1992, titled “Rules on Italian citizenship”.

Below are some specific articles of this law:

  • Article 4: Establishes the general requirements for acquiring Italian citizenship, including legal residence, absence of criminal convictions, absence of social dangerousness, and knowledge of the Italian language
  • Article 5: Concerns the acquisition of Italian citizenship by foreign citizens married to Italian citizens and establishes the specific requirements for this category.
  • Article 9: Regulates the acquisition of Italian citizenship for unaccompanied foreign minors and establishes the conditions and special requirements for this category.
  • Article 13: Establishes the requirements for acquiring Italian citizenship for those born in Italy to foreign parents and residing legally in Italy for a specified period of time.
  • Article 17: Concerns the acquisition of Italian citizenship for those born in Italy to foreign parents and residing legally in Italy for a period of time shorter than that required in Article 13.

This law establishes the general provisions on Italian citizenship, including the criteria and requirements for acquiring citizenship. Law No. 91/1992 is available and can be consulted on various official websites, such as the website of the Italian Ministry of Justice (www.giustizia.it) or the website of the Italian Ministry of the Interior (www.interno.gov.it). Alternatively, you can also consult the official website of the Official Gazette of the Italian Republic (www.gazzettaufficiale.it) to access the full text of the law.
