Residency for Jure Sanguinis

Applications for Italian citizenship through jure sanguinis in Italy are submitted through local government offices called comuni—the equivalent of town halls. Before you can submit your application, you must officially establish residency with a comune.

Don't risk your citizenship

There is a specific sequence of events to establish residency, including a formal residency check. Failure to properly establish residency can result in your application being rejected.

As part of our service, we ensure that your residency is fully recorded and documented with the comune that will be processing your citizenship application. We file all the necessary documentation and go with you to the appointments with the officials to interpret and ensure everything goes smoothly.

If you’re using our Apply In Italy service, we obtain all necessary copies of your residency registration for your citizenship application and spouse residency permit application.

Our service includes:

  • Full process guidance
  • Documents prepped and filed
  • Appointment support and interpretation
  • Official copies for citizenship application
