WHAT DOES IT MEAN "ITALIAN CITIZENSHIP JURE SANGUINIS"?

What is the “Jure Sanguinis principle”? 

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

The Jure Sanguinis is the way to obtain the Italian citizenship through Your Italian Ancestors

The Jure Sanguinis principle was set by the Italian Citizenship Law starting from Civil Code in 1856, then implemented in 1912, and finally by the Italian Law 91/1992. 

So, if You have Italian ancestors in Your family bloodline (i.e. Your grandparents or great-grandparents, or the a single great-grandfather or grandfather or grandmother, were born in Italy) you may be eligible to claim Italian Citizenship by Descentunder the Jus Sanguinis Italy principle.

And do not be confused by different terms. You can find them online: you may often find definitions like “Jus Sanguinis Italy” or “Jure Sanguinis Italy.” This is the same process.

Of course, it’s not so easy as it seems: it’s essential to have an uninterrupted bloodline and check there are all Vital Records certificates to prove that.

Indeed, some of the mandatory documents and certificates You will need are Birth Certificates (of Your grandparents, great-grandparents, or any other Italian ancestor You have), Certificates of Naturalization Records or No Records, Marriage Certificates, and so on.

What does Jure Sanguinis mean?

Jure Sanguinis means that you have a "right of blood". So, you can claim your Italian citizenship just because you have an Italian bloodline in your family. There's a lot of confusion on the term, because Jure Sanguinis is technically the same process as the Italian citizenship by Descent, also if they are listed with two different names.

 So, basically, You can apply for Jus Sanguinis Italy following the same requirements for Italian Citizenship through the Ancestry program: you will always need all vital records for each person in the bloodline, starting from the Italian Ancestors (grandparents, great-grandparents, and so on), until You as the main applicant. 

Do You have children?

That’s not a problem, of course. You will have to collect their Birth Certificates too.

1948-Case-Italian-Citizenship
The 1948 Cases are special applications under the Jure Sanguinis

Only the Italian Court must process the 1948 Italian Citizenship cases only through the Italian Court.

The second one is You have not a 1948 Italian Citizenship case, but you’re facing relevant issues with the same Italian Consulate. 

What type of issues?

We are referring to the most common circumstances, like long wait times for just an appointment, or in case you are unable to book appointments at the Italian Consulate for several reasons not depending on Yourself. 

So what to do in this last case? How the Italian Court has relevance? 

How can I apply for Italian citizenship Jure Sanguinis in Italy?

Jure Sanguinis applications can be submitted in Italy in two different situations. You can come in Italy, set your residency here (and so become an Italian resident) and then apply through the Italian Comune (Municipality). Or, you can apply without coming in Italy through the Italian Court. In this case, you have not to come in Italy - just hire an Attorney specialized on Italian Citizenship Jure Sanguinis.

Why people are moving to apply to the Italian Court, when possible?

This is starting to be a really trending option, as the Italian Consulates are really stuck and not able to handle all applications, according to statistics limited to the United States.
