Getting Italian citizenship, and especially European citizenship, is often a lengthy and expensive process, and because of this we have been asked countless times, “What are the benefits of getting Italian dual citizenship?” Obviously, the list of perks and benefits is large, but we’ll go over some of the most sought after reasons for attaining Italian Citizenship below.
Italian citizenship lets you reside wherever you want to in the European Union
With Italian citizenship, you are allowed to move to Italy, or any of the 26 EU (European Union) countries, without the need of an extended-stay visa.
Travel freely at any time for any duration between any of the member countries.
The perfect solution if you’re considering to spend your retirement years in Italy or the EU.
With Italian citizenship, attaining higher Education in the EU becomes much easier and affordable
As a citizen of Italy, and the European Union, you will have the ability to reap multiple educational benefits, and in some cases free higher education.
You will have the ability to attend college or university at the local tuition rates, and have eligibility for countless scholarships only offered to Italian citizens.
Work in Italy, or any EU member country, freely as an Italian citizen
When it comes to the job market, dual citizenship will make a huge difference on your resume, as situations which would naturally prevent a citizen from getting a job in another country will no longer be present.
Dual citizenship puts you on equal rights to participate in public tenders, to start businesses, and open bank accounts in Europe
Pass on the gift of Italian Dual Citizenship to your relatives
When your Italian dual citizenship application is approved, any children you have under the age of 18 will automatically become Italian citizens.
Your family members will also now have access to submitting their applications to become Italian citizens.
Italian citizenship entitles you to many medical benefits, including free health care
As you may know, not every country has a health care system in place to take care of its citizens who need help the most.
As an Italian dual citizen, you will have access to the incredible health care program present in Italy, as well as an European Health Insurance Card which grants access to free or greatly reduced cost health care services across all of the EEA (European Economic Area) member countries.
You will also have access to medical treatments which may not be available in Canada, United States, or Brazil.
Countless travel and immigration benefits
As an Italian citizen, when applying for a work, visitor, or education visa for many first world countries (such as Canada, or the United States), you will notice you are granted longer stays than you would if you were applying from a country such as Brazil.
- Italy -> Canada visa will be valid for one year.
- Brazil -> Canada visa will be valid for only 6 months.
