2What are the requirements to become a citizen?

You can apply for Italian citizenship if you have Italian parents, or in some cases grandparents, if you’re born in Italy, or if you marry an Italian. Otherwise you might be eligible for citizenship through residency if you live in Italy for long enough.

The waiting time in this case depends on your circumstance – from four years for people with some Italian heritage, to 10 years, for those coming to Italy from outside of the EU. Click the next ARROW to see the next image!
