Do I qualify for Italian citizenship ?

Reply Tue 11 Aug, 2015 04:41 pm
I have came to Italy in 2004, But I didn't registered my residence until 2011, I mean I didn't have carta d'identità from the comune till 2011, I have born in 1991, My father became Italian citizen this year, Do I qualify for citizenship ?, As I'm 24 years old, Meaning I'm not a minor,
What is My best shot to apply to citizenship ?
Go through my father, Or try to prove I've been in Italy for more than 10 years and apply to it ?

P.S. I'm a waht they call "third-world" country citizen.

I don't know. Is there an italian consulate anywhere near where you live, to ask them, or at least read their information pages ?

Maybe it would be smart to see an immigration attorney, but even that may be fraught as I suppose they are both busy and not always legit.

an you ask whoever helped your father?

Required legal residence in Italy for:

3 years for descendents of former Italian citizens up to the second degree and for foreigners born on Italian soil;
4 years for citizens of a European Union country;
5 years for Stateless persons and refugees, as well as for adult foreigners over the age of 18 adopted by Italian citizens;
7 years for children adopted by Italian citizens before the entry into effect of Law no. 184/1983;
10 years for non-EU citizens.

No period of legal residence is required for foreigners who have been employed in the service of the Italian Republic for a period of at least 5 years, also abroad.

Citizenship applications, addressed to the President of the Republic, must be submitted to the Prefecture of the Province of residence, accompanied by the following documentation:

birth certificate containing all pertinent data or, in the case of the documented impossibility of producing that, an affidavit (duly legalized and translated) issued by the diplomatic-consular authorities of the country of origin stating all exact personal data (first name, second name, surname, date and place of birth), as well as those of the father and mother of the applicant;

declaration renouncing the protection of the Italian diplomatic-consular authorities from the authorities of the country of origin, using the preprinted form available from the prefecture;
waiver in the sole case in which the original citizenship is not automatically lost with the voluntary acquisition of a foreign one (to be presented only upon formal request by the Ministry of the Interior);
