Residency & Citizenship

Post New Topic

Buongiorno We will be arriving in Italia to get our Citizenship recognized. There are a few procedures I need to get more information on.

Will we need 3 original sets of documents for each application, meaning 1 set of documents for PdS, a set of documents for Residency, a set of documents for citizenship - set of documents meaning birth certificate,, etc...?

Wherever we get our citizenship recognized will that be our "home" commune where we apply? If we move from that commune if we need paperwork or anything after having our citizenship recognized we contact them?

what will we receive in the end what document is it that we are recognized as citizens?

Do we apply for Italian passport right after we receive citizenship? Where do you apply for that? Can we apply for passport while citizenship being processed?

Can any of the PdS packet forms or citizenship forms be accessed before we leave for Italy so I can print them?

Is their a fee schedule somewhere that has the current fees for Pds & citizenship?

You need one set of documents per person who is applying. It does not hurt to have extras.
You apply for residency at the commune in which your home is located. You will receive an Id booklet that will show your citizenship. Should you move to another commune you will need to establish residency there.
If you move to a new commune, they will have all your documents available.
The passport is obtained from a different part of the questura in the provincial capital that contains your commune.
Set aside a few hundred euros for the process. All is done sequentially so, no you can't get your passport until you are completely registered as a citizen and you are removed from the PdS registry.

Sergios do you think I can get my citizenship recognized before 90 days so I will not have to get the PdS. ??I have to come back to California after getting my citizenship because we are closeing out our family owned company here. Then once we close the company we can come back to live in Italy permenately. This is the reason why i am asking if we need that PdS or will it take less than 90 days?
When paying all these fees for PdS and Citizenship do they take Visa debit cards? Which types of payments will they accept?

Sergios I forgot one more thing to my other questions ^^^^ . Do I have to wait to get my PdS to be processed before getting my residency?

You need to apply for the PdS ASAP so you can start the residency process. Once that is done you can get the citizenship process started. Residency can take a month or two to complete depending on where you go. If the commune is small enough and the people working there are knowledgeable enough, and if they are willing, then maybe you can get it down in less than 90 days. Notice all the if's and the maybe. If you are in such a hurry you may want to contact a specialist lawyer to help you with the process.
You need the post office receipt to get the residency started. Not the PdS itself.

Sergios Thx! The first step Questura is not the first step anymore? I read through some older posts on here some said go to Questura first or only go to Questura if we did not fly directly into Italy to show our presence in Italy? The Post office sets me up with the Questura for fingerprints and all? Will we need photos for Pds and Residency and of course passport how many photos?

You're mixing topics. As a tourist you need to announce your presence in Italy by going to the police. Nobody does that. You will need to go to the post office for the PdS application. They will give you the kit which you fill out and return to the post. They will check it over, look at your original documents and the copies. They will attach the copies and you keep the originals. They will then give you an appointment for the questure (several months in the future) where you will be interviewed and fingerprinted and photographed. The receipt they give you is very important. Do not lose it.
You will need several photos but get them when you need them. They have photo booths available or you can go to a photography shop to have them taken.
