Naturalized but still a citizen?

Postby cybertao » Fri Jan 19, 2007 2:48 am

I have a simple question. I have a daughter born in 1999. For certain she has both Italian and American citizenship.

However, I naturalized US citizen in 2004. I never renounced my Italian citizenship since I was informed it was OK since 2001 to keep the Italian citizenship. (art. 24 of Law n.91 of 5/2/1992)

I just had a son this year. I am not fully certain how the Italian law would treat him. Since I am still an Italian citizen, would this mean he would receive citizenship from even though I naturalized American 3 years ago?

Any thoughts?

Yes, your son is a citizen of both the U.S. and Italy. However, as an Italian citizen, it is your responsibility to notify your consulate of any changes in your personal life (marriage, divorce, children, address, etc.). You need to register your child's birth (your daughter's birth as well) with the consulate so that they can register it with your commune in Italy. Do it now.
