Visiting an Italian Consulate
Unless you were born in Italy, you won’t be applying for dual citizenship in Italy itself. The final step of your application process will take place at the Italian consulate which has jurisdiction in your state or county of residence. Your Italian Consulate reviews dual citizenship applications from American citizens, although they will not provide legal advice or direction.
Preparing to Visit the Italian Consulate
The process of gaining Italian citizenship will be similar no matter the jurisdiction of the Consulate. You will need to attend the meeting in person and present a set of original documents and vital records which the Consulate will keep.
If you need help with qualified translations or experienced advice on the process, you can contact us for assistance. Be sure to bring these items with you when visiting the Italian Consulate seeking dual citizenship with Italy:
- Your US Passport
- Your driver’s license or state issued ID
- A utility bill not more than 60 days old
- A money order for the fee of 300 euros
