Did you know that you may already be an Italian citizen?
If you descend from an Italian citizen, or if you have an ancestor born in Italy, you may be eligible for Italian citizenship! Obtaining Italian citizenship would allow you – while maintaining your American citizenship – to reconnect to your cultural background, to obtain an Italian passport for you and your family, and to live, work, retire and freely travel in Italy as well as in any other country in the European Union.
Since every person’s situation is unique and the process can be complicated, we will guide you step-by-step to prepare a successful application that will allow you to obtain Italian dual citizenship. The American Italian Cultural Center can assist in obtaining and translating the required documents and handle your application from start to finish at an affordable rate.
At this time, we do have a wait list for the Dual Citizenship program. Contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or call us at 504-522-7294 to be added to the wait list. We look forward to welcoming you as an Italian citizen!
Notes from Successful Applicants
Eliza (June 2017 applicant)
Then, about a year ago, I stumbled upon the fact that the American Italian Cultural Center provided assistance in acquiring dual citizenship.
My appointment at the Italian Consulate in Houston went extremely well. I am so appreciative to Alessandro at the American Italian Cultural Center for the extensive assistance he has given me in getting through this process. He told me exactly what I needed to do, patiently walked me through each step, and translated many documents which were needed. He told me what to expect at the Consulate, and in general, was absolutely fantastic to work with.
I can honestly say that if it had not been for Alessandro’s help, I would never have made it through the process.
