Required documents

Post by garyf » 20 Jun 2012, 17:08

Hey Everyone,

I have an appointment in September (NY) to apply/submit my documents for Italian citizenship through jus sanguinis. I believe I have all documents needed, but I wanted to confirm this with the consulate beforehand. Is there any way to do this? Is there a number I can call or email? I also need to get the documents translated and don’t want to spend money translating documents I do not need. Here is a list of documents that I have..

My list of documents: GGF > GF > M

Great Grandparents:
GGF birth cert. (from Italy)
GGF Death Cert
GGF Naturalization Cert.
GGM Birth cert. (From Italy)
GGM/F marriage Cert. (From Italy)

GF Birth cert.
GF Death cert.
GF/M Marriage cert.

Mothers Birth cert.
Mother Marriage Cert.

Birth Cert.

Any insight or advise would be greatly appreciated. I just want to make sure I am fully prepared for my appointment in September. :)

I have found this site to be extremely helpful. I think that the requirements vary from consulate to consulate ...although not by much. I am in Los Angeles.

Have you recieved the information you need? I have just been notified of my citizenship. Now I need one more piece for a passport. Perhaps I can help. There seems to be some difference if need between consolato's.
