Documents Needed for Appointment with Consulate

Postby Benito512 » 18 Mar 2009, 18:04

May I ask a question about the documents needed for application for dual citizenship? I will apply through the Chicago Consulate, and my situation is as follows: My great-grandparents were born and married in Italia. They came to the United States, and my great-grandmother gave birth to my grandfather eight years before my great-grandfather was naturalized.

I have the following documents:

--Great-grandparents' births and marriage certificates from Italia
--Great grandparents' death certificates (translated into Italian)
--Grandfather's birth certificate (translated into Italian)
--Grandmother's birth certificate
--Grandparents' marriage certificate (translated into Italian)
--Father's birth certificate (translated into Italian)
--Mother's birth certificate
--My parents' marriage certificate (translated into Italian)
--My birth certificate (translated into Italian)
**I am not married and do not have any children.

I guess I would like to inquire if, based on my situation, I have collected and translated the proper documents. As far as the translations, the website for the Consulate in Chicago states, "Documents that do not need to be translated are those relating to the “non-Italianâ€

You don't mention a naturalization certificate, but I assume you have it. You don't mention apostilles either, but assuming you have them, you should be ok.

Thanks for catching that. Yes, I have the Petition for Naturalization, Oath of Allegiance, and Acceptance of Petition. Also, I have apostilles on all of the other documents, except for those obtained from Italia.

Grazie ancora,

Benito
