DO YOU QUALIFY FOR ITALIAN CITIZENSHIP BY DESCENDENT?
Let’s see if you qualify for Italian Citizenship by descendent. According to Italian Law 91 of February 5, 1992, Italian citizenship is conferred by bloodline. If you are an Italian citizen’s descendant, you may already be an Italian citizen, and you will need to get your citizenship recognised by the Italian government! Nevertheless, there are some exceptions that you need to look at before starting your process of recognition. I will assist you in collecting all the Italian and US vital records that belong to your family’s bloodline. The type and amount of documents depend on how many past generations of research you need to prove your right to Italian Citizenship.
THE DOCUMENTS NEEDED FOR ITALIAN CITIZENSHIP
Vital records such as certificates of marriage birth or death must be provided in long form only and bear the necessary seal of approval from the relevant registry office. If an amendment on a vital record should deem necessary, an “affidavit to amend record” will be requested. This will take extra time. In order to ensure the best chance of approval, you should know the importance of accuracy with Italian dual citizenship required documents. Additionally, each document should include an apostille, an official document that validates these documents. Moreover, a fully certified translator must also translate these documents into Italian.

WHAT COULD GO WRONG WITH YOUR APPLICATION
The Italian consulates are very strict with the document requirements and often reject applications causing applicants to reschedule. You must have certified copies in the correct formatting. Failure to have certified copies will result in a denied application.
The Italian consulates have become extremely strict regarding any discrepancies and inconsistencies. If there are any variations or errors, the consulate REJECTS YOUR APPLICATION. If there is any inconsistency or variation in a record, you must file an official “affidavit to amend a record” along with official documentation.
The paperwork in your dual citizenship application must be flawless. Taking time to assemble the correct information and check the accuracy of these documents will save you time. If you need assistance learning how to apply for dual citizenship in Italy, I can assist you with the process.
