Citizenship by Adoption

 

Citizenship by Adoption

The right to citizenship is extended to any minor child adopted by an Italian citizen by means of the provisions of the Italian Judiciary Authorities, or in the case of adoption abroad and rendered valid in Italy through an order issued by the Juvenile Court for enrolment in an official Italian statistics office (Anagrafe).

Adoptees of legal age can acquire citizenship after 5 years of legal residence in Italy after the adoption.
