Processing Italian Nationality & Citizenship

If you have a claim to Italian descent or are married to an Italian national,  don’t miss this opportunity to benefit from all the advantages  of full Italian and European citizenship. 

Let’s open doors for you and your family.

All you have to know about the Italian Citizenship through Descent or Marriage

What are the benefits of Italian nationality?

  • Permanent citizenship, with all of the living and working rights of a European citizen.
  • An Italian passport, known as one of the most powerful in the world, giving visa free access to more than 130 countries worldwide, as well as complete freedom of movement within the Schengen area.
  • Open the path for your family to enjoy the same benefits.

 

Who can apply?

Through descent:

In many cases, you can claim Italian nationality no matter how many generations between you and the ancestor (ie through parents, grandparents, even great-grandparents or further back). However, there are some exceptions depending when the ancestors were born and if they maintained their Italian nationality throughout their life. We always do a pre-feasibility study, completely free of charge, to consider all aspects before getting started with your case – contact us.

Through marriage:

Depending on whether or not you live in Italy, and/or have children with your spouse, the time criteria are slightly different. To talk to an expert about the most up-to-date criteria

    I have over 20+ years of experience working with various kinds of lawyers in New York, Boston, Zurich, Barcelona and Tokyo. Evelyn Romero was hands down the best immigration attorney! Evelyn is extremely knowledgeable and proactive with impeccable attention to detail, responsive and personable communication, and a kind and professional approach. I’m very happy I found her and I highly recommend Evelyn Romero to anyone looking for a highly skilled, no hassle immigration attorney.

    I have been working with Carbray for several years, since they assisted with the initial visa application for my life in Spain. All of the attorneys that have worked with me for the last four years have been professional, forthright and prompt in their replies. If you are looking for knowledgeable and professional people to help guide you through the daunting process of dealing with a new government to process your immigration, I can recommend Carbray International with the highest degree of confidence!

    We cannot thank Carbray enough for all their help and support throughout our NLV process. Magdalena and her team have been so amazing and so helpful and we couldn't have done this without them. They reply to every phone call and email instantly and are always there to help through what can be quite a stressful process at times. I would recommend Carbray to anyone thinking about starting to apply for their Spanish visa!!

    Laia Fernandez has done an outstanding job with my divorce case and I can not thank you enough for that. She was able to explain to me all the steps very clearly and was very proactive. She really made it simple & transparent. The fact that she is bilingual (English/Spanish) also helped a lot !Thank you once again Laia for everything !

    We applied for a 1 year non-lucrative visa, the visa team led by Magdalena Barrueto provided a first-class exceptional service to us. The process of applying for the visa is long and complex, however with the professionalism, expertise, guidance and support of the team we successfully received our visas. The team led us through the process in a clear and concise way, providing important support with the translation of documents. We cannot recommend Carbray highly enough.

    Dealing with the bureaucracy in Spain can be intimidating for newcomers. It’s also confusing! This is particularly true when applying for residency. Carbray International did an excellent job shepherding my wife and me through the process. We’re very pleased with their work and recommend their services in the highest possible terms.

    Carbray International Law Firm was an absolute god send. I am so delighted with the outcome of my case. My lawyer, Magdalena was very efficient, was able to communicate and be very knowledgeable about the subject matter at hand. Furthermore, Michelle who assisted me on the day was very charismatic and friend to calm my nerves. Both of them made my application process extremely easy. I would not hesitate to recommend Carbray.

    From the moment we started working with the Carbray team, my husband and I have had the most professional service. Starting with them reaching out to us right away from our first inquiry. Even in the midst of the pandemic the team was efficient and dealt with all delays.Their communication has been top notch as well. Not once through the entire visa process did we have to wait for a response or wonder about next steps. Their entire process was laid out clearly and we're very helpful following up on questions.We had called a few other firms that were not very responsive. We're so happy that we found Carbray. They are an excellent firm and we highly recommend them.
