Italian dual citizenship costs may vary depending on a number of factors.
Those who go the DIY route can expect to spend anywhere from a few hundred dollars to a few thousand. The final price may vary according to the number of generations you go back to your last Italian-born ancestor, the number of documents needed, the number of amendments to records needed, and the number of translations.
Also, keep in mind that prices for vital records such as birth, death, and marriage records vary between states. Accordingly, prices for apostilles (legalizations) of those records also vary between states.
Alternatively, clients wishing to use a service provider to apply in Italy can expect to spend anywhere from $5,000 on up. This price may also vary if the client decides to purchase a turnkey application where all original documents are included for use in Italy.
Translation prices also vary and run anywhere from $50 per page and up depending on the translator.
Finally, anyone applying at the consulate must pay a 300 euro fee per applicant. This fee is not refundable and is not refundable. There is no application fee for applying in Italy.
