Another family member applying for Italian Citizenship

Postby Tonio70 » 14 Feb 2010, 02:04

My Aunt, her daughter and two kids(cousins) are now going to applying for Italian Citizenship in Houston TX through our GGF, my aunt's GF. My question is since my cousin is married, how would her husband get citizenship through her. Is it possible at all?

After (and only after) your cousin's citizenship has been recognized, her husband can apply for citizenship jure matrimoni (citizenship through marriage). This process is somewhat more expensive - there is a Euro 200 fee just to apply - and time consuming, typically taking two years for approval after the application has been submitted.
