Hi, Ben- to answer part of the question, Ms. Stone who handles the citizenship issues at SF, said that my brother because he is still a minor did not need to be present. For my mom, because we needed separate applications but wanted to use the same documents, she came with me. I don't think that one...

Appointment in SF done!

Hi, I had my appointment in SF today, and I just thought I would share what happened. The appointment was for 10 this morning, and they were very punctual. The appointment itself took only about 25 minutes. I applied with my mom and little (and minor) brother. After Ms. Stone carefully looked over t...

I had a similar experience. I would highly recommend going through the comune if you feel up to it (it took me a while to get my courage up to it :) ). I sent a request via regular mail to the comune and got my document within 2 1/2 weeks. I enclosed a self-addressed envelope and in my letter reques...

I wrote a letter to my grandmother's comune requesting her birth certificate and sent it away in mid-May. Last week I received it in the mail. In the letter I told them I was applying for dual citizenship in the US, gave them my grandmother's name, date of birth and her parents names. I also include...

I had the same question, who should apply first my mom or me? I asked the person in charge of the citizenship office in SF, she said that I could apply without my mom doing so at all. I don't believe that you would have to wait for your dad to apply before you. Are both of you applying together?

Thanks everyone. Yesterday I mailed my request. When I found out that the post office isn't selling International Reply Coupons anymore, I just included email and other contact info., so I guess if I owe them anyting they'll let me know.

comune fees

Hi, I'm planning on writing to the comune of my grandmother and asking for her birth certificate. I was wondering though how much money to enclose to cover document fees. I checked the comune website (it's Capannori) and there doesn't seem to be fees listed for that service. I've heard others say th...

Thanks for the clarification. A couple of things: would she only need to fill out a separate application? Could we 'share' the one set of documents that I've got or would we need another set of those too?
Sorry for all the questions.

Mom's citizenship

Hi all, I think I've already asked this question before, but as my appointment with the SF consulate draws nearer, I'm afraid I'm getting a little paranoid :) . I'm applying for dual citizenship through my maternal grandmother. I've heard that once my application is processed and approved (keeping m...

Tiffany, I'd also like to thank you for pursuing this. I've been away from the forum for about a month and was shocked when I read about this craziness at the Consulate. I've been tryng since December (and quite unsuccessfully) to get an appointment to present my application. Maybe it's related to t...

Someday, I was a little bothered by the generalities on the new SF site. In the case of SF, they had a fax number for questions about qualifying and the requirements necessary. Faxes seem to get quick responses from the consulate. Also, the SF site posted more information as the weeks went by, maybe...

questions-apostilles and naturalization cert.

Hi, I have some questions about documents. Last night a friend of mine who has completed the dual citizenship process with Portugal told me that documents and apostilles expire within a year. I hadn't heard this before; I didn't think either expired. Clarification on this would be appreciated. My ma...

Thanks to you both. I think I will send another e-mail. For some reason I was debating about sending another. I'm trying to stay patient, but it's getting difficult :) . Hope that marriage certificate from Messina comes too.

Hi Em, I've contacted them twice by e-mail. The last time was in late October, they told me that they would try to contact the comune in mid-November. If the birth certificate can't be found, that's one thing; I'd just like to know. It's also the last document that I need, though there's no hurry. I...
