Hi All,

Just wanted to double triple check that I qualify for Italian citizenship because I finally managed to secure an appointment at the consulate in London after many attempts!

My great grandfather moved to the UK, married and then had my grandmother in 1930.

He naturalized in 1936.

As far as I know my grandmother was never registered as an Italian citizen.

She married a British man in the late 50's and my Mum was born in 1960. Myself in 1991.

It all seems pretty straightforward, just wanted to make sure I'm not somehow missing anything obvious here.

Thank you!

Louie.

You are good to go. You have a very simple story. As long as you can document it all will go well.

Thanks cpa21.

I know it's a bit off topic but if anyone could answer me here that'd be great:

In regards to the summary of the birth certificate, I have already received a scanned copy of it via email from the comune. Will that be sufficient? Or do i need to obtain an official copy from them?

Hi,

Like you I'm applying through my great grandfather and had my appointment in London in December. I believe a scan of the birth certificate isn't enough and you need to request a hard copy stamped by the comune.

Nine times out of ten, a color print-out will be accepted (mine was in Miami).

R78,

How did it go with your application? Is there anything specific I should know?

Thanks!

Louie.

Hi Louie,

It's been five months now and I'm still waiting to hear anything back from the consulate. I'll post on here as soon as I get some news.

About the scan vs hard copy birth certificate, I would advise getting the hard copy because I think this is required by London. It's such a long wait for an appointment, it's best to go in with all the boxes ticked.
