Frequently asked questions

1Do I need to speak Italian to obtain Italian dual citizenship?
No. You may seek recognition of your birthright even if you do not speak Italian. The law is very clear on this!
2Must I be 100% Italian?
No. All you need is one qualifying Italian ancestor. You can be 100%, 50%, 25% or less and still qualify. You also do not need an Italian name.
3Do I have to go to Italy and apply?
No. You can if you like, but most people apply for Italian citizenship at the Italian consulate. There are 10 Italian consulates and embassies scattered across the United States, and more in other countries.
4Is there a limit to how many generations I can go back to claim my Italian citizenship?
No. Italian citizenship law poses no restrictions on how many generations you can go back.
5Is it expensive?
Compared to what other people pay for European citizenship, Italian dual citizenship is a steal.

While citizenship by investment schemes to obtain other European passports such as that of Cyprus require millions of euros in fees and investments, you can obtain an Italian passport with us for as little as $5,000.

    GIC! I love you! I'm writing this while I come down from the heavens after my consulate passport appointment. Less than two years after I contacted you, I am now the proud owner of an Italian passport. I cannot thank you and your company enough. I had tried working with another company but they were unresponsive and provided vague answers. It looked like I would have to give up until I heard about you guys through the grapevine, and I am so glad I did.

    When I tried to apply in Sicily, I went to to local Patronato with an interpreter. We were told that because of so many scams, they stopped processing all such applications. This is when I contacted Get Italian Citizenship. Less than a year later, I happily have my Italian Citizenship and passport and it couldn’t have happened, so smoothly or quickly, without their help!
