Eligibility Verification - Step-by-step guide

The purpose of this step-by-step guide is solely to help you determine whether you may be eligible to apply for Italian citizenship "jure sanguinis", that is, by descent. However, please note that the outcome of this guide is in no way a guarantee that you will be recognised as an Italian citizen. You will still need to book an appointment and submit a completed application with all the necessary documentation. Kindly note that in order to be recognised as an Italian citizen, an applicant and his/her ancestors must not have renounced their Italian citizenship before any Italian authority.
