730 Day Cases

Skip the Wait Times for an Appointment – Hire Us for Your Italian Citizenship Application

An increased volume of requests for Italian citizenship by descent means that appointment times at most Italian consulates in the US range from 18 months to 10+ years. Many clients ask if there is a way to expedite this process without having to go directly to Italy.

In most cases, there is the option to file so-called 730 day cases, which allow you to petition the Italian government for your citizenship to be recognized. You do not need to go to Italy for this option, nor do you need to show up to a consular appointment.

We’ll explain how below.

For When You Can Neither Obtain an Appointment at a Consulate nor Make it to Italy

There is an alternative to accelerate the process of Italian citizenship by descent.

Even if your case is a “regular” one (i.e. not a 1948 case), you can still hire an Italian attorney for legal representation. Normally in these cases you would not be eligible for representation in court, but long consular wait times have made this option viable.

Pursuant to Article 3 of President of the Republic’s Decree no. 362/1994, the entire process of obtaining Italian dual citizenship by descent cannot legally take longer than 730 days. Applicants have the right to intervene (or have someone intervene on their behalf) if the application takes longer than this timeframe.

For over a year now, lawyers have successfully argued in Italian courts that long consular wait times are a violation of applicants’ rights. In these 730 day cases, judges have granted Italian citizenship by descent to the petitioners without them having to be in Italy.

These are an innovative Italian solution to a uniquely Italian problem.

Therefore, if you are frustrated by long consular wait times and the impossibility of obtaining an appointment there is a way out.

What If I Can’t Get an Appointment at All?

If you have an appointment with an Italian consulate scheduled more than 730 days in the future, we can help you submit your application to the Italian courts and speed up your citizenship process. Likewise, if you are totally unable to obtain an appointment we can also help. Our affiliate agreement with an experience law firm in Rome means we can handle your 730 day cases by filing your petition at the Civil Court in Rome.

Who Is Eligible for 730 Day Cases?

Generally, there are three categories of eligible applicants for this type of court case.
