certificates of good conduct

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.

certificates of good conduct

Postby roobyred » 18 Aug 2011, 18:10

When applying for dual citizenship in NYC, do I need to get a certificate of good conduct for myself and my husband? My appointment is tomorrow and I just read this!!!
I don't think I'm prepared for tomorrow now :cry:
Thanks Roberta

Only if you are applying through marriage to an Italian citizen.

Presuming you are applying for jure sanguinis recognition, your past conduct is immaterial; you either were or were not an Italian citizen from the moment of birth. You could conceivably be a convicted murderer serving a life sentence in prison and still assert your right to Italian citizenship by descent. :)
