Help with dual citizenship - USA/Italy

Postby antcole93 » 28 May 2014, 07:29

I read the parameters on how to "qualify" for Italian dual citizenship, and it stated:
My mothers father must have been an Italian citizen at the time of her birth (in America).
Am I reading this correctly?

Grandfather (Italian citizen) -> Mother (Born while Grandfather is Italian citizen IN America) -> Me


Sorry if I confused anyone lol

You may qualify, but it depends on your birth date. This was taken from the San Francisco consulate's website:

Please note: a person born before 01/01/1948 can claim Italian citizenship only from his/her father (who was not a naturalized citizen of another country before his/her child’s birth), and a woman can transfer citizenship only to her children born after 01/01/1948 (if she was not a naturalized citizen of another country before her child’s birth).

Hope that helps : )

I guess I should mention that some have hired lawyers and beat the 1948 rule, so there's still hope (albeit costly) if you were born before 1/1/1948
