Is USA passport a requirement to obtain the Italian passport

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.

Is USA passport a requirement to obtain the Italian passport

Postby LAROCCAMOM » 28 Apr 2011, 13:40

Is the USA passport a requirement?
I received an email from the Italian consulate in Chicago. They say that the only thing that we are missing, with the passport application package already sent, is a copy of my children's USA passports. I sent an email back explaining that they don't have the USA passport yet. They will be applying for them next week. I haven't heard back from them as of yet.
Do you think that is going to be an issue?

Thank you

Per the Italian consulate in Chicago, first Italian passports for children require USA identification, in the form of a US passport.

I think it's safe to say that US passports are a requirement for minor children regardless of where they might reside in the US.
