NYC Consulate approves dual - where does file get sent?

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.

NYC Consulate approves dual - where does file get sent?

Postby JPMessina44 » 14 Oct 2010, 14:39

I would assume it would get sent to the comune of my ancestor (great grandfather in Catania, Sicily) If I wanted it sent to Rome for example, is that possible to do?

Just curious more than anything

I was told by the Houston Consulate that they are required to send your documentation to the ancestral commune, that it cannot go anywhere else.

Interesting. Thanks for the reply. Was more curious than anything cause I read a posting where they had the files sent to Calabria but their ancestors were from Sicily.

Thanks!

I was advised by an italian lawyer that you can apply in any commune. however this only applies if you are doing it at the commune in italy. if it is at a consulate abroad it is required to be sent to the commune of ancestry.

Correct. We have seen others who tried to have their documents directed to another comune but were told no. It simply does not work that way.

It doesn't really matter, though, where you are registered. You are free to live or work anywhere in Italy (or in the Europe Union) with citizenship. Where your papers are is insignificant, no?

Once the commune has all thesenpapers. Is there a way for another commune to track it? Can all communes tell ifnyou are a citizen?

Im not sure about that. But once you are registered with your comune the consulate calls you in to obtain your EU passport. That in itself shows citizenship.
