What was the law in 1948 concerning Italian Citizenship?

I need to understand Italian Citizenship laws.


Answer by  patti (29325)

An individual born after 1948 to a parent with Italian citizenship are eligible to apply for Italian citizenship, regardless of the location of his/her birth. Dual citizenship is allowed.


Answer by  patti (29325)

Citizenship is granted to an individual by the country in which he was born or by the country he petitions for citizenship after meeting all the specific requirements for same. After WWII, immigration laws were eased in some countries, particularly for displaced Jews, but citizenship laws generally do not change over the years.

It is now two years or after three years of marriage (if overseas). Those periods are reduced respectively to one and a half year if the couple has a child (provided a lack of criminal record and national security concerns). If the mother is the Italian parent, the child must have been born on or after January 1, 1948.
