Possible to apply by Jure Sanguinis in Italy??

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Possible to apply by Jure Sanguinis in Italy??

Postby _Chiara » 01 Apr 2015, 14:03

Hello all!

I am nearly ready to apply for Italian citizenship by Jure Sanguinis - so excited!! I have stumbled across a few different things that have led me to believe it might be possible to apply IN Italy. (One of them being this old thread on this forum --> http://www.italiangenealogy.com/forum/emigration/11026.)

I also read this --

Note that had all of this been taking place now, though, there are provisions in place for someone like me to be here legally until the process is finished; now you can get a special stay permit while waiting for the recognition of Italian citizenship jure sanguinis (permesso di soggiorno in attesa di cittadinanza).
For this permit to apply, though, you must apply in Italy, but an even further upside to applying in Italy is that you will most likely cut out a lot of the wait often encountered in US consulates, which can be several years long [...].

Have tried checking http://www.expatsinitaly.com/, but the site seems to have been down for over a week now??

Can anyone point me in the right direction or shine some light on this for me? It would be very, very much appreciated.

:) Chiara

You can indeed apply in Italy, but to do so, you must establish a legal residence in the comune through which you will be applying. You will need to obtain a visa because the process may well exceed three months. The post to which you refer is eight years old, and the process has become a bit more difficult and time consuming. I know that my own application would receive considerably more scrutiny today than it did when I applied.

Keep in mind that if your comune is small and unfamiliar with citizenship applications, you may have some additional difficulty. So, unless you plan an extended stay in Italy and are able to establish residency, it is probably preferable to apply at your consulate.

Chiara,

Did you apply in Italy? If so, how did it go? I am planning to do that after I finish collecting my documents.

In case you still haven't, you don't have to do apply in your ancestor's comune, though. Any comune should be able to process your application provided you fulfill the requirements (such as residence) and it will be better for you if they actually know how to deal with this. If you speak Spanish you can read instructions and success stories in these websites:

I am from Argentina and many people here go to Italy to avoid the long wait for appointments and processing. And Uruguayans too, as you can see in the first link.

Best,

Valeria

Hello My grandfather was born in Pavia di Udine (UDINE) ITALY in 1866. The parents were Giacomo and Lucia Rizza ... I'm trying to get more information to apply for the birth certificate .. I tried to obtain information on churches, but can not get information. Thank You Matias.
