Do you need to apostille your Certificate of Nonexistence of Record issued by Homeland Security (USCIS)?
A Certificate of Nonexistence of Record is a document issued by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security (DHS) that states that DHS has no record of the person named in the certificate having been admitted to the United States as a permanent resident or having been issued a certificate of naturalization. This certificate may be requested for various reasons, including for use in immigration proceedings, for proof of U.S. citizenship, or for personal reasons. The certificate provides a formal statement from DHS indicating that there is no record of the person in question having been granted certain immigration benefits.
Below is an example of a Certificate of Nonexistence of Records issued by the US Department of Home Security (USCIS):
How do I obtain dual citizenship with Italy?
To obtain dual citizenship with Italy as a U.S. citizen, you must first meet the eligibility requirements for Italian citizenship. In general, you may be eligible if:
- You have Italian ancestry: You may be able to claim Italian citizenship through your Italian-born ancestors, even if they emigrated from Italy many years ago.
- You are married to an Italian citizen: If you are married to an Italian citizen, you may be eligible for Italian citizenship after a certain period of time living in Italy.
- You have lived in Italy for a certain period of time: If you have lived in Italy for a certain period of time, you may be eligible for Italian citizenship.
Once you have determined that you are eligible for Italian citizenship, you will need to apply for citizenship through the Italian consulate in the U.S. The process of obtaining Italian citizenship can take several months or even years, and it may require providing proof of eligibility and completing various forms and interviews.
You may be asked to apostille various documents including:
- Certificate of Nonexistence of Record
- Birth Certificates
- Marriage Certificates
- Death Certificate
- Divorce Decree
- FBI Background Check
It’s important to note that obtaining dual citizenship with Italy may have implications for your U.S. citizenship, as the U.S. government recognizes dual citizenship but may consider a dual citizen to be solely a citizen of the foreign country in certain circumstances. Before pursuing dual citizenship, it is recommended to seek the advice of an immigration attorney to understand the potential implications.
