Apply for Italian dual citizenship in Italy
Italian dual citizenship applications in as little as just 1 week
Applying for Italian dual citizenship is easy and simple with the assistance of Get Italian Citizenship.
A practical choice
A way to skip the consulate
Italian dual citizenship comes with a wealth of benefits. From owning property in Italy to affordable education and healthcare as well as the added protection from two countries when traveling abroad, an Italian passport is your ticket to the freedom of the European Union at large. The opportunities afforded by possessing Italian dual citizenship cannot be overstated. But, beyond that an Italian passport is so much more. It means bringing your family's long history full circle. It means holding in your hand the results of your commitment to your heritage. It means a real, quantifiable connection to the land of your ancestors. When you obtain Italian dual citizenship, you are bringing your own family's journey home and unraveling your personal Italian story.
With wait times of up to 4 years at certain consulates, there is a massive interest in obtaining Italian dual citizenship. Chronically understaffed Italian consulates in the United States are contending with a swell of applicants and less resources now than they had ten years ago. Recent measures on behalf of the Italian government to implement a 300 euro fee per each applicant via the consulates has done little to quell increasingly long wait times for appointments as well as increasingly difficult requirements. What's more, each consulate works in its own little bubble with its own requirements that vary from time to time (and even from consular worker to consular worker). Applying in Italy takes away the long appointment wait times as well as stringent requirements and subjective requests.
How it works
Get in touch with us
First, you contact us. Tell us when you'd like to be in Italy and let us know all the information you can about your family. We'll check our availability, go over your eligibility, examine your records, translate them, and make sure you have a complete application ready to be handed in on the ground in Italy.
Arrive & Request residency
Once everything is confirmed, we will welcome you to your temporary home in Italy for the next 2 weeks. Once you're settled, we'll take you to apply for your temporary residency. We'll help you fill out all the necessary forms and make sure your residency is confirmed in a timely manner.
Hand in your documents
After your residency has been put into the town's system and you're officially on their register of residents, you can then hand in your documents. We'll sit with you at your appointment where you will show the town officials all of your vital records which have been pre-examined and translated by us.
Wait for your citizenship!
Once everything has been taken care of for you during your stay in Italy, you're free to either continue your vacation elsewhere or go back to the U.S. and wait for your citizenship to be awarded. We will work on your behalf with the consulate back home and the comune to process everything as fast as possible.
