Where do I apply?

Applications for recognition of Italian citizenship by descent must be presented to the Italian consulate or embassy that serves where you live.

IMPORTANT: You may not apply at the Consulate or Embassy of your choice. You must apply at the Consular authority that has jurisdiction over your place of permanent residence. This includes applying in Italy–you must be a resident in Italy to apply directly in Italy. See our section on applying in Italy for details.

For the purposes described here, “permanent residence” is the place where you keep your habitual dwelling (i.e. you pay bills there, have a State-issued ID at that address, etc.).

IMPORTANT LEGAL NOTICE FROM THE ITALIAN GOVERNMENT REGARDING SCHEDULING APPOINTMENTS:

We would recommend all users to refrain from accepting any offer made by websites, agencies or other individuals claiming to be able to book an early appointment on your behalf, provided that you pay a fee. The Consulate General wishes to stress that there is no connection at all between the Consulate itself and such websites, agencies or individuals and reserves its right to take action where appropriate, including cancelling appointments it discovers or suspects were made via a paid service.
