Dual Citizenship through ICGS / myitaliancitizenship.com

Postby marista » 24 May 2004, 16:27

My family and I would like to get dual citizenship in Italy. I have figured out that we are eligible, and am wondering if anyone here has done this. If so, how did you go about it? Did you use a service? The one I am considering is myitaliancitizenship.com (ICGS) and I am curious if anyone has experience with them, or with the process in general.

Thanks!

Italian citizenship is a serious matter. There is an organization call my italian family.com and Italiamerica.com that provides guidance. Peter

I understand that it is a serious matter--that is why I am trying to find out if ICGS is a reputable service to go through.

Italiamerica.com does not exist, by the way.

Dear Marista I am very curious as to what your responsiblities as an italian are since the website you furnished ICGS only speaks of benefits and makes no mention of responsiblities as to taxes, military service etc. Peter

I'm not sure if I read it on there or somewhere else, but I know that military obligations are only an issue if you are male (which I am not) and between 18 and 45 I think, and are residing in Italy. Taxes would probably be a good thing to look into, although I really doubt they would charge taxes to citizens who had never worked in Italy.

i prefer myitalianfamily.com because they are professional and not pushy.
just read the requirements and obtain documents from italy via this service while obtaining US documents by using the telephone and doing the legwork here. An attorney will do the same but charge for obtaining documents you can easily obtain yourself here. get the facts then start making calls to get your answers!

Mr. lemarche I would not be so "pushy" and recommend that people do without the services of any attorney since citizenship is important and rules,regulations, policy and procedures often change and only an attorney who is on top of the situation is the suggestion that makes the most sense for people seeking advice.
