Already, a question (re passport for starters)

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.

Already, a question (re passport for starters)

Postby Steverino3006 » 14 Jan 2011, 21:53

My recognition documents state I was born in the city where my parents lived, but I was born two cities over where the hospital was. In the US I have always stated "place of birth" was the hospital city. Do I do that for Italian documents (passport application for starters), or use my home city as per the Italian recognition document?

This was all perfectly clear in my application and documents.

Looks like Italy refers to the city of residence as the place of birth, right?

There seems to be a tendency to get this screwed up for some reason. Ideally, your name, date, and place of birth should be exactly as shown on your US birth certificate.

My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me! :)
