SERVICES AND TRANSLATIONS FOR ITALIAN CITIZENSHIP
ARGENTINIAN VITAL RECORDS TO BE PRESENTED IN ITALY
OR IN AN ITALIAN CONSULATE OUTSIDE OF ARGENTINA
Whenever the translation into Italian of an Argentinian birth/marriage/death record is to be presented outside of Argentina for citizenship application or to update your civil status, a consular stamp is required, a.k.a legalization of said translation.
How do you get it? The original record, duly legalized and apostilled according to the The Hague Apostille Convention, should be brought to the Consulate of Italy together with its translation. The consular officer compares the original with its translation and stamps the translation for conformity.
We are able to obtain, legalize, apostille, translate and bring your documents to the Consulate of Italy in Buenos Aires.
Examples: your ancestor emigrated to Argentina and you are going to apply for citizenship in the US or in Italy. Or your ancestor was an Italian woman and you are going to file a 1948 case through an Italian lawyer. You are Italian and lived in Argentina, and you need to update your civil status with those events that took place in Argentina.
This certificazione di conformità requirement applies also to judgements of divorce, adoption decrees, criminal records, church records (when a birth record is not available), name change orders, etc.
UNITED STATES VITAL RECORDS TO BE PRESENTED IN ITALY
OR IN AN ITALIAN CONSULATE OUTSIDE THE US
Whenever the translation of a US birth/marriage/death vital record is to be presented outside of the Unites States for citizenship application or to update your civil status through your local Consulate (e.g., a Consulate of Italy in Argentina, Spain, Mexico, Brazil, etc.), it requires the stamp of the appropriate Consulate of Italy in the US. Through our office in the US we are able to provide this service.
This certificazione di conformità requirement applies also to judgements of divorce, adoption decrees, criminal records, church records (when a birth record is not available), name change orders, one-and-the-same orders, affidavits, etc.
CERTIFICATE OF CITIZENSHIP / NO CITIZENSHIP FOR IMMIGRANTS TO ARGENTINA
The certificado de ciudadano / no ciudadano argentino issued by the Argentinian Cámara Nacional Electoral is a key document for citizenship applications by ius sanguinis. It attests as to whether your Italian ancenstor naturalized and when. We can help you obtain, apostille, translate and have the translation certified/legalized at the Consulate of Italy in Buenos Aires.
VITAL RECORDS, DECREES, CRIMINAL RECORDS
We do simple translation of birth/marriage/death records, divorce sentences, adoption decrees, criminal records to be sworn on in Italy ("asseverazione") or to be used in those consulates accepting them (almost all consulates in the US and some consulates in Argentina).
Simple translations are done entirely remotely and quickly. Just send us legible scans/pictures of your documents, and you will receive the translation in PDF.
We translate letters to your Italian Comune or your relatives on the other side of the ocean, and we help you read older records and get ahold of distant relatives.
BOARD CERTIFIED 'TRADUCTORES PÚBLICOS' IN ARGENTINA
