What is the immigration news? The Security and Immigration decree, which amends the country’s Immigration and Citizenship Law that went into force in October, is now in effect. The decree, also known as the “Salvini Decree,” abolishes residence permits on humanitarian grounds and creates stricter requirements for citizenship by marriage and naturalization applicants.
Humanitarian Protection Residence Permits
Citizenship by Marriage and Naturalization Applicants
BAL Analysis: The changes may cause delays in citizenship by marriage and naturalization applications, as the processing time increases to four years. Foreign nationals may find it harder to achieve citizenship by marriage due to the change. Foreign nationals living in Italy under “humanitarian” protections may lose their legal status when their documents expire.
