Renouncing Italian citizenship


Renouncing Italian citizenship

The Act 91/1992 provides for the possibility of renouncing Italian citizenship in some specific cases, defined by the Act.

SA residents may renounce Italian citizenship by personally calling into the Consular offices (no appointment required). They will need to bring with them two witnesses and the necessary documents.

PLEASE NOTE - a minor who is the child of a person renouncing Italian citizenship will NOT lose the Italian citizenship.
