Obtaining citizenship through 2-yr residency??

Postby ldecerchio » Sun Nov 23, 2008 5:56 pm

I finally discovered that my great grandfather was naturalized after my grandfather's birth, which means that I CANNOT simply apply for dual citizenship. The grandmother on the other side was also born in Italy, but naturalized before having my father, as well.

My question is whether or not it is still possible for me to apply for citizenship after 2+ years of residency in Italy. I'm considering looking for a job there, since I am already studying in Europe, but this information would be helpful in my decision. The embassy and consulate websites do not offer detailed information on this particular possibility, it is just briefly mentioned. Any information anyone has would be greatly appreciated :D

Thanks,
Lisa

If your grandmother was an Italian citizen, then you do qualify for citizenship with 3 years of residency (you're 2 degrees removed). The procedure is to apply after the 2nd year but before the 3rd year.

The people on expattalk.com can give you more information on where and how to apply.

Is this typo? Because after means you can apply for simple recognition.

It would only matter if you were applying through your grandmother jure sanguinis. If you are applying by 3 years residency it's ok.
