Italian citizenship



Question: Do I have rights to Italian citizenship if my parents were Italian?

Answer: If your father did not give up his citizenship rights (naturalization) prior to your birth, than you are entitled to Italian citizenship. If he gave up his rights, but your grandfather was also an Italian citizen, you can apply for citizenship through your grandfather. There are many intricacies to the claim for Italian citizenship through family ancestry.

As each case is different, please contact the firm for specifics regarding your situation.
