The Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021 Options: Introduction.


Today’s article is dedicated to those of you who are interested on Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021 Program

You maybe heard about a New Italian Citizenship Law in late 2020, so we explain You all Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021 options we can provide for You.

These updates will affect the Italian Citizenship by Marriage and by Residency Paths, but there are some BIG news on Italian Citizenship by Descent too.

So let’s see how these updates will affect Your Italian Citizenship Jus Sanguinis application.

But, What is the Jus Sanguinis principle? 

According to the generic definition, the Jus Sanguinis is a principle of nationality law by which citizenship is determined or acquired by the nationality or ethnicity of one or both parents. 

So, if You have Italian ancestors in Your family line, you may be eligible for applying on Italian Citizenship Jus Sanguinis.

How can I apply for Italian Citizenship by Descent?

Which options I have for my Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021?

There are some common questions asked by our Clients regarding the Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021 options.

There are several ways to apply for  Italian Citizenship Jus Sanguinis.

The “ordinary way” is to apply through the Italian Consulate (if you are living abroad) or Italian Municipality (if you live in Italy).

And these options were not affected by the new Italian Citizenship Law. BUT:

These ways are becoming day-by-day less common, as there are big issues, that we will explain below in this article.

And You will understand why requesting our Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021 through the “special way” (Italian Court) is becoming trending.

When Can I request Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021?

The Italian Citizenship by Descent Special Application.


In 2018, Italian government approved a decree that increased Italian Citizenship Processing time for obtaining the Italian citizenship from 2 to 4 years.

This regulation allowed the Ministry of the Interior and to the Consulates to extend the processing time of Italy citizenship applications from 2 to 4 years.

It limits the application of the 4-years deadline to Italy Citizenship by Residence processes and by marriage processes.

Italian Citizenship by Descent was not touched, and remain 2 years waiting.

The New Citizenship Law (now still on approvation phase) didn’t affect this: it lowered the time frame for the other programs (3 years), but Italian Citizenship by Descent remained untouched.

But let’s consider another issue: COVID19.

This year complicated a lot more the previous situation: Consulates are closing and there is no way to book appointments.

So: You have to wait years for just a Consulate Appointment (if You are able to book).

And after, you can have to wait up to 2 Years for the final decision on your Italian Citizenship By Descent Application.

Italian Citizenship Applicants became so tired of this situation.

As You can understand, the  Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021 became a maximum priority.

Just few examples: at the time of this articles, Italian Consulate in L.A., in NYC, in MIAMI, are closed and/or suspended all appointments. It means there is no way to apply for Italian Citizenship by Descent.

That’s why Your Need a new  Italian Citizenship Assistance 2021 option, we can provide.

And we will explain Why and How Italian Citizenship Assistance is (almost) mandatory.

This will apply not only for that “ordinary” way (aka Italian Citizenship by Descent through Consulate).

But also for the “extraordinary”/Special way (well known as Italian Citizenship Jure Sanguinis 1948 case)

Indeed, the Law do not formally recognize some Special Cases.

Seems to be a lot of confusion in regards to what the process entails, also because Consulates never talk about that. 

These are called “Italian Citizenship Jure Sanguinis 1948 Case” or “Italian Citizenship through Maternal Line ” or “Italian Citizenship 1948 Rule“.

Jus Sanguinis Italian Citizenship 1948 Rule: The Other Special way to Apply.

The Law does not formally recognize the so called “Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule ” or “Italian Citizenship through Maternal Line ” or “Italian Citizenship 1948 Case“.

Seems to be a lot of confusion in regards to what the process entails, also because Consulates never talk about that. 

We will also briefly compare the “Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule process and the ordinary administrative process.

It is not so rare to find a woman in the Italian lineage: and this can create some confusion.


But is that enough to ruin your chances to Italian citizenship?

Is Italian law really so backward to discriminate women from men?


Why that? 

When searching from informations, people can visit – as official source – Consulates websites.

Most Italian Consulates published statements on their websites, like:

A person born before 01/01/1948 can claim Italian citizenship only from his/her father

But that is simply not true.

Unfortunately, such inaccurate statements on Italian citizenship in the female line get repeated by misinformed people worldwide.

It appears designed to discourage applicants from even considering Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule .

If you want to avoid wasting your time, refuse all inaccurate information.

How to Recognize an Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule Case?

If your Italian ancestral line includes a woman, you should first check if your female ascendant gave birth to her child before or after 1948.

  •  If she gave birth before 1948 – it was not possible for women to transfer Italian citizenship to their children. So it’s a 1948 case.
  • If your female ancestor gave birth during or after 1948 – Italian women were able to pass down Italian citizenship on January 1st, 1948.

If your case falls into the “Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule” (well know as Italian Citizenship Maternal Line 1948), you will need to pursue Italian citizenship through Italian Court. 

So, with Italian Citizenship Assistance by Italian Citizenship lawyers, Like us.

Your Italian Citizenship Assistance.

Let's talk together.


Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule: Let's make an example.


To illustrate how the Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule works, let’s make an example.

Your grandmother was born in Italy and did not become a naturalized U.S. citizen before the birth of your mother.

This could qualify you for dual Italian citizenship

However, if your mother was born before 1948, then you would not qualify under the 1912 rule.

The 1912 Law only allowed men to transfer their Italian citizenship to their children and descendants. 

If your mother was born after January 1, 1948, then you could qualify for dual citizenship status.

The Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule went into effect after Italian Constitution.

But Yet, the Italian government has never updated or changed it.

So, if the Law cannot guarantee some rights, the Italian Court can. 

That’s why now you can claim your Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule for your Italian Citizenship maternal Line rights only through a Court.

What does it mean applying for Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule?


Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule” route through the judicial process does not necessarily mean that the overall process will be longer or more difficult.

Instead, it can be less longer.

Simply,  you are making your claim to Italian citizenship in a different manner than the more common administrative process.

The biggest difference being that you need to petition the Italian Court of Rome to achieve recognition as an Italian citizen.

At this point in time 1948 cases are only handled in Italian court.

To clarify, what’s different about the administrative process and a 1948 case,  is that you’ll need to file a proper claim before the Civil Court in Rome in order to have your case examined by an appointed judge.

This does not mean that it’s any less likely or more difficult to successfully complete the process.

In fact, hundreds of Italian Dual Citizenship 1948 Rule have been positively judged since 2009.

Meaning that the retroactivity of the Constitution with regard to Women’s right to transmit their Italian citizenship is widely recognized as a “Case Law”.

Which means the previous judicial judgments have strong legal authority.

In the majority of the cases one hearing is sufficient.

STEP 9: Final judgment

The final judgment is generally issued within 2-3 months from the (final) hearing.


STEP 10: Registering Yourself as Italian Citizen 

Once your citizenship is recognized with a court order, all the vital records will need to be registered in the Italian Municipality where your ancestor was born.

The actual court order is the document which will entitle you to have your records registered in Italy.

And for other post-Court steps, like AIRE registration and others.
