The Salvini Decree on immigration and Italian citizenship

A recent decree which became effective October 5, 2018 has brought some substantial changes to the Italian citizenship law.  Known as the Salvini Decree it provides these changes:

  • Proceedings for granting citizenship (a) by marriage or (b) by residence in Italy may now last 48 months (previously 24 months)
  • Proceedings for citizenship iure sanguinis involving events prior to 1948 may now last 48 months (previously 24 months)
  • These new time limits apply to both new proceedings and proceedings currently under way

The decree is valid for 60 days.  Within that time the Parliament can modify or delete part of the text.  It is necessary to wait for Parliament’s conversion to find out whether these new rules will be maintained, modified or canceled.

Meanwhile the Salvini Decree is law.
