New Birth Certificate in Italy

Postby ncaprio » 23 Jul 2010, 23:18

Hey kids... I'm curious... how does it work when you're granted citizenship... Are you registered with the Comune of the town you're claiming citizenship through?

For example... if I'm going through my grandfather in Castellabate... and I was accepted through the consulate... would they create a new "birth certificate" for me at the comune?

Yes. That is exactly what happens.

If you wait long enough (up to a year in many cases) you can eventually write to the comune and request a copy of your birth (and marriage if applicable) certificate.

Ncaprio, I was recognized in 2001. My documents are registered at the Comune di Castelli in Teramo, Abruzzo. They did not create a new birth certificate for me -- because I wasn't born there. But the Comune did keep and file the original birth certificate (with Apostille) that I submitted to the Philadelphia Consulate back in 2001. Subsequently, I ordered an additional copy of my birth certificate for myself because I thought I should have one -- even though my American passport should suffice. In addition, your Italian passport (when you get it), will show your birthplace as "Stati Uniti d'America" or "Canada", etc. but will not show "Italy" because you wern't born there.
