Italian Dual Citizenship in New York
If you’ve been thinking about beginning your Italian dual citizenship application, ITAMCAP is here to help. Many people in the United States are eligible to apply for Italian citizenship by descent (jure sanguinis) or Italian citizenship by marriage (jure matrimonii) without even being aware of it, and that’s where we come in.
The Benefits of Italian Dual Citizenship
Gaining Italian citizenship in New York can be a complex process with lots of paperwork involved, but the benefits far outweigh the work it takes to get there. Some of the benefits include:
- The right to work and live not just in any Italian municipality, but in any country in the European Union
- Access to amazing education in Italy, for a fraction of the cost if you’re a citizen
- The ability to purchase property in Italy after you become a citizen
- Legal protection as an Italian citizen
- The right to vote in Italian elections
Italian dual citizenship applicants in the New York area have access to experts that can help them gain all of these benefits, including translations to Italian and more.
How to Gain Dual Citizenship
There are a few ways to gain Italian citizenship and an Italian passport, such as through Italian ancestry and descent, through marriage, and through naturalization. If you think you might qualify for Italian citizenship because you have an Italy-born ancestor or Italian spouse, it’s a sure sign you should contact us and get the process started.
The journey can be complicated without expert help. You’ll potentially have to gather:
- Information about your family and Italian ancestor, including Italian records, birth dates, birth certificates, and more
- Expert translations and apostilles for documents
- Proof of marriage or naturalization
Since each case is unique, it’s impossible to say exactly what you will need, as the qualification requirements differ. We can advise you on exactly what’s necessary for your case.
Once you have everything, you will have to apply to the Italian consulate in New York City, which can take months to process your application. One reason it’s so important to have experts involved is to reduce the risk of mistakes and therefore reduce delays by making sure all necessary vital records are submitted with the application. If applying in Italy, the process is different, as you will apply to the governmental bodies there.
