Why Applying For Dual Citizenship Is Not That Easy.

Since I last posted on my progress with applying for dual citizenship, I've managed to collect all the right documents, which took me a while to do. Look, my family tree is still very tangible for me because I am first generation so getting the documents and knowing names is easy, but physically getting the papers the way the consulate wants them is another story. The documents as you begin to investigate the process all have to be in a certain long form. You'll know this when you start to request your official documents. So, now I am onto translations and then off to the consulate hopefully for the New Year to make it all official. Its not an easy thing to become a dual citizen, and even people I know who have done it have also said once you've completed everything it then takes forever again for the consulate to contact you to notify you of your official status. Well, again, good luck to you and to me...I will post again on my progress.

Applying For Dual Citizenship, The Process.

So, enough complaining on the last few blog posts and now I'm back to business. Yesterday, I started my process for dual citizenship. As an Italian American you may be entitled to become a dual citizenship of Italy if you qualify by rules set forth by the consulate of Italy. I will post a link with information on the bottom of this blog.

Many people want to know what are the benefits of applying for dual citizenship, reasons, and does it effect your American citizenship..? Again, there are tons of benefits and some reasons for me that are just personal. But, the United States is one of the great countries where you can apply for dual citizenship in a country like Italy and not have it effect your American citizenship.

I won't post tons of information on this today because I have yet to learn the process myself. I will tell you the process starts with you just reading up on the requirements, if you qualify, what documents are needed and how to obtain them. The document part is definitely detailed, so this isn't something you can do in a day or even a month. Stick to my blog and check back with me every so often as I keep you posted on the process for applying for dual citizenship. I will attach links for you to read on the process, wish me luck too!! Also, if any one has gone through the process and have any tips let me know!!!
