Two questions. 1) I am of Italian heritage, my wife is not. If I obtain dual citizenship, can she do so also? 2) what would the cost be for both of us?

You mention on your website that applying for residency in Italy might decrease the timeline to dual citizenship. Is this still true for 1948 cases?

Hello, I have a few questions
1. My father was naturalized after my birth but he was married to my mother before he naturalized and AFTER my mother was naturalized before 1983 making her automatically an Italian citizen, is that correct? And if so does that mean I can apply through my mother?

2. My father said he reacquired Italian citizen later on in life after 1992, could I apply through his citizenship regardless of my age? (Note: I was born before he reacquired his citizenship)

My grandparents were born and married in Italy. They came over in 1901. I am unsure if my dad was born before or after my grandfather was naturalized. My grandmother never was naturalized (or she acquired by marriage?). My dad was born in 1930 in the US. His oldest sister was born in Italy.
Is this something you can help with? What would the cost be?

Where would I go in the U.S. to find out if /when my great-grandfather was naturalized?
I believe he arrived in the U.S. before Ellis Island was established as one of the official entry place for immigrants.

Good afternoon,
Would I qualify for Italian Citizenship?
Condition #1 Grandfather born 1897 came here from Italy in 1911ish, married 1923 and became a Citizen in 1928. My dad was born in 1939.
Condition #2 My Grandmother on Dad’s side came here from Italy in 1903, became a citizen in 1918, when she was 15 thru my Great Grandfather.
Would I qualify for Italian Citizenship for a 1948 case?
Thanks for your help.

Hello,
My paternal great grandparents were both born and married in Ripacandida, Italy. My great grandfather naturalized in 1927, my great grandmother naturalized in 1938. My grandmother was born in the US in 1932. Would I qualify for dual citizenship?

When applying for recognition in Italy, is it important (and more efficient) to take residency near or in the comune of one’s direct descendant?

Ciao! Quick question about naturalization dates. Which date is the actual date that matters? Is it the date on the declaration of intention or the date of the Oath of Allegiance? Will you need to present both documents to the Consulate? Thanks!

Hello there…
My mother and grandmother moved from Itlay(where they were citizens) to the US in 1946 and became US citizens in 1947. My mother was born in Milan, Itlay in 1940, I was born in 1963 in the US at that time my mother was a US citizen and as of 1992, she received her dual citizenship.
I do not think I qualify for dual citizenship through my mother or deceased grandmother. How about through my grandfather who passed away in Milan, Italy in 1942 and was born sometime in the early 1900s in Torino, Italy?

Thank you!

How do you obtain vital records from Illinois? They seem to be very strict and only allow Parents of the child to obtain birth certificates but I need to get them for my deceased Father and Grandfather. Thanks!

Is it true that every document must match exactly on all documents for the Miami Consulate when applying for Italian Dual Citizenship?
My mothers birth certificate shows an incorrect birth date by one day.
Thank you very much.

What is the estimate time to receive Italian citizenship for a first generation family member? According to the Italian consulate in New York, due to the delays from COVID-19, new applications are not being processed. It can take 3-4 years to obtain Italian citizenship. Is this accurate? Do you have further or updated information on this? In fact, the Italian consulate website does not allow you to book new appointments.

Two Questions – 1) I am applying for dual citizenship. How can my 2 adult children use the documents I have gathered for their application? Do all 3 applications (2 children + me) need to be submitted to the same time in the NY Consulate?; 2) My husband was previously married and divorced with no children. Do I have to docuement the other marriage and divorce docs for my application or only for my children’s application?
Thank you!
