Which Consulates overlook the 1912 rule?

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.

Which Consulates overlook the 1912 rule?

Postby mikegates90 » 21 Aug 2015, 20:19

I have been reading up on some information about some consulates not interpreting the 1912 rule as "if the parent naturalized prior to 1912, the minor lost citizenship." Some disregard it or see it as retroactive. I have heard Philly does this.

I am completely green in regards to citizenship, with the exception of the 1912 rule (G-G-GF naturalized in 1909... 2 YEARS!!!! aah) and I would like to know where I can go to avoid denial.

Any help would be excellent.

As far as I know, Philly is the only one, and I don't know if that is still true. You may want to check with one of the "1948" lawyers to see if there is a legal approach that is possible.

The SF consulate doesn't even list the 1912 rule as a disqualifier on their website anymore when they have in the past. So I'm thinking SF may not care about it like they have. That's just a guess though. I'll find out in January when I have my appointment there because my gg grandpa naturalized on 15 June 1912, two weeks before the cutoff!
