Citizens of other European Union Member States who have been lawfully resident in the territory of the Italian Republic for at least four years can apply for Italian citizenship, which may be granted by decree of the President of the Republic, on the proposal of the Minister of the Interior.

For stays of longer than 3 months, the family members of an EU citizen who are not EU nationals must apply for a residence card for family members of EU citizens at the local police headquarters or through the post (using the application kit with a yellow stripe).

Italian citizens resident in another EU Member State have, for any type of election held in Italy, the same rights to vote and stand as a candidate as their compatriots resident in Italy.

If you wish to vote in the election of members of the European Parliament for Italy, you must submit to the mayor of the Italian municipality where you are resident an application for inclusion on a specific electoral roll, at least 90 days before the scheduled date of the election.

When repatriating a body (or ashes or mineralised human remains), a distinction must be made according to the country of destination.

If you are a European citizen, you have the right to enter Italy or another Member State other than that of which you are a national and reside there freely, under different arrangements depending on whether the period of residence is shorter or longer than 3 months.
