Document Translations

Over 25 million Italians have emigrated between 1861 and 1960 with a migration boom between 1871 and 1915 when over 13,5 million emigrants left the country for European and overseas destinations.

Document Translations

Postby Cen51 » 26 Jan 2010, 01:26

Does NY consulate require translation of legalize on the back of certificate? For instance, the Domestic Relations Law paragraphs on the back of my Grandparent's NYC marriage certificate. Or the Certificate security Features box on the back of my NYS birth certificate.

Thanks to all.

What follows is roughly what the NYC consular official said to me in early 2008:

"You must translate everything. If your application is approved, we will send this document to Italy to be registered in your comune; if there are parts that are not translated, the comune will question what they are and if they are of importance. If the comune has questions, they will refuse to accept your citizenship and send everything back to this consulate. This would be a very bad thing."
