It’s Official!

My application has been processed – in other words, I am officially recognized as an Italian citizen!!!

This is me…….if I were the CN Tower

This actually happened 2 weeks ago (I was out of the country, so no blog updating for me). I awoke one morning to this very straight to the point, unceremonious message from the consulate:

2017-05-24 14_21_32-Document2 - Microsoft Word

I actually had to read this twice to make sure I understood it correctly. Something this big couldn’t possibly be expressed so tersely, and in such a flat tone….could it?! (short answer: yes)

This was quite fast – I submitted my last documents on Feb 1, so the processing took 3.5 months. They estimated 8-12 months. Not bad!

  1. Congratulations!! Please leave your blog up as I am going yo pursue this process and I will need your blogs guidance as I am unfamiliar with the process! Thank you! I qualify thru my maternal great grandfather if you have any tips please let contact me and let me know!


    1. Thank you Paul! I will definitely leave it up; I want to help as many people as possible. It’s actually a very straightforward process once you get started, just very long and time consuming. Glad to hear that you qualify! Feel free to ask me as many questions as you’d like — I’ll send you an email right now.
