I applied in Philly in April 2004 and received the first letter saying my docs were sent to Italy in December 2004.

My docs have since been registered (my dad's in May 2005, mine in September 2006), but we've never gotten that mysterious second letter.

Best of luck :)

I've completed the process through Philadelphia, Anthony. From my understanding, the comune in Calabria really has no authority to reject your documents; the decision is made higher up whether you have met the requirements (in fact, my letter from Philadelphia said something similar to this phrase)....

Just to add on a bit to Em's response, as far as I know, there's no such thing as a consular system that would share documents regarding jure sanguinis applications. Again, AFAIK, your application and your documents stay together, and if your family members want to apply at the same time yours in th...

If I understand correctly, you're going through your mother's line of Italian heritage to claim your own citizenship? In that case, your mother will have her citizenship recognized in the process as well. Your mother will be able to apply for a passport when the process is finished the same as you a...

I have heard that rumor as well, Tiffany, but I've never found anything to confirm it. OTOH, I have seen the ****://www.luigipaiano.com/content/view/14/28/lang,en/:5hnbdgf3]website of a lawyer in Bologna who offers his services to "[d]escendants of italian mother born before 1948: we start the ...

Woodworth, the so-called 1948 rule comes from the fact that Italy's current Constitution, effective January 1, 1948, was the first Italian legislation to recognize women as citizens in their own right. Thus, an Italian mother who gave birth before January 1, 1948 could not have transmitted Italian c...

Sorry, but you're not going to get your documents back during the review or thereafter, unfortunately. However, if others in your line can apply in the jurisdiction of San Francisco, I suggest applying together. Your mother and/or father, whichever line you're going through, will be recognized in th...

Jordan, FYI, along with the Italian birth record, you can also request a certificate of citizenship from your comune once the documents are registered. I was already in Italy when my process was completed (and no, no word from the consulate yet), so I used both the birth record and citizenship certi...

I would call the comune and ask them. If you don't speak Italian, find someone who does (ad in an Italian paper, etc.). My father's citizenship papers have been finished for a year and a half and his consulate STILL hasn't sent him anything to tell him. I only know we're citizens because I called th...

Unfortunately, Italy does not grant citizenship based solely on being born within the country (jus soli). Itay's citizenship laws operate more on the principle of blood (jus sanguinis), i.e., having at least one Italian parent, although there are exceptions. For instance, even though you were born o...

Only to echo others who are saying that European consulates are probably just as informed as others; I'm helping someone go through the Dubai Consulate, and their rules seem pretty much the same as when I went through the process in Philadelphia.

In bocca al lupo to both Giuseppe and jcallori :D

I haven't either, Capitul, but wouldn't that be awesome?

I think maybe Santo was just lucky enough to have had the passport passed down to him 8)

Ciao Em, I do agree with the general attitude of simply waiting it out as patiently as possible BUT I will say that everyone I spoke to IN ITALY told me that I needed to continually call the Consulate to see what was happening (I didn't do this, but I did try, unsuccessfully mainly, every now and ag...
