As of January 1, 2018, all vital records (certificates of birth, marriage and death) submitted to this Consulate for processing must be accompanied by their full translation into Italian done by one of the translators listed with this Consulate, just as required for any other document submitted in languages other than Italian. A Consular fee for the legalization of the translator’s signature will apply. Click here for current fee schedule and list of translators (“Legalizzazione atti” – art. 69).

Kindly note that the minor child/infant born of a parent (one or both) currently in possession of Italian citizenship is an Italian citizen. Therefore, the parent must not submit an application for recognition of Italian citizenship in favor of the minor/infant but will only have to send the request for registration of vital records (birth) to this Consulate General, as indicated here.
