Questions Asked

Hi, We are looking to buy a property in Italy using our Self Managed Super Fund. An SMSF is unique to Australia I believe but it is your retirement funds that we have put into our account managed account.

Hello! Make sure you triple check the dates it was finally processed.. my grandmothers took 3 years to actually finally go through in Australia which was 3 months after my aunt was born so her family could get citizenship:)

Ok well that's all pretty easy is a list of what you will need.

An original of your birth certificate that the embassy will keep - not sure if you can order online the UK but easy to do here. If you are married or divorced or both you will need originals of these too.

You need to have all 3 documents translated by an approved translator - there will be a list on the Italian embassy UK website.

You then need to have the 3 original English docs apostle by your UK government to prove they are original and true documents.

Your Italian embassy over there has a register online to make a booking so do that and then you should be ready to take yours proof in, basically they will open your dads file and see that you are a continuation of his citizenship so you shouldn't need any details about that.

There will be an aire form to complete which is Italian residents living abroad which they send your family comune. 


Any questions let me know :)

If your father has his passport then this will mean he has his citizenship. You cannot have a passport without being a citizen. Do you know if your father processed his in the UK or the town in italy that his parents were born? 


Are you planning to apply in the UK at the Italian embassy? If so, I can send the list of documents you will need. It would be faster if your father did his in the UK but not necessary. 


Let me know if you need more details.

I don't think the marriage would have automatically taken away her citizenship. She would have to have been a citizen somewhere else first for it to be taken away and therefore naturalized in the UK (I assume that's where they married). Have you looked at.yours mum naturalization certs?

My grandparents moved from Italy to Australia around the same time. At that time in order for them to receive citizenship in Australia they had to give up their Italian. This was standard practise between both countries at the time so I can imagine that this was in fact what happened with your mother. 

The best thing to do is order your mothers British naturalisation application documents. In Australia you can search these on the National Archives website and then order a copy. The way it works in Italy is.... If you were born before your Mothers naturalisation was finalised then you will have automatic rights to citizenship. If you were born after this time then unfortunately it is not so simple. However, your mother may be able to re-apply through her parents and then pass this to you but I am not sure if they will want her to live in the country again. There was a small window back in 2000's were Italians could take their citizenship back without spending time in the country but it has expired now. 

Can I ask were you born long after they were married? It took my grandmother 6 years to be Naturalised in Australia so luckily for some of my younger cousins their mother was born 6 months before it was approved. Unfortunately for those following they are ineligible. 

So first steps is to get copies of your mothers naturalisation cert with the granted date (you may already have this in her files). If that date is after you were born then let me know and ill tell you all the next steps. 

Thanks - Laura

Hi Ugo
I have found the property has a well but im not sure how much water that will supply. I have done more research into the property and there appears to be some old bathrooms so they must be accessing water from somewhere. Unfortunately I am abroad so it's difficult to see it all myself.

If it's like Australia then i would recommend logging in everyday and looking for appointments because they do get cancellations so you will find one. Have you got all your documents ready? It's better if you have everything you need ready for the 1st appointment and then they can process straight away. If you need a list then let me know and I'll post what you need.
