Friends, Italy needs our help...
On August 24th, Italy was struck by a devastating earthquake which took the lives of hundreds, destroyed thousands of homes, and shattered the lives of countless people. Your Italian Passport, through the National Italian American Foundation, is partnering with the Italian-American Relief Fund to assist in bringing help to our Italian brothers and sisters.

Your Italian Passport Client Reviews
"From beginning to end, our experience with the team at Your Italian Passport can be summed up in one word - EXCELLENT!! Lauren and Carlo's research, knowledge of the application process, and attention to detail, ensured that we had a successful review of our application at the Italian Consulate. If anyone is considering seeking Italian citizenship, I can, without hesitation, highly recommend the services Lauren and Carlo provide. Bravissimo, Your Italian Passport! " -- Ron Schiavetta - Florida
"From start to a very successful finish, Lauren and Carlo of Your Italian Passport made what could have been an arduous journey so much easier. I have friends who are still waiting through regular channels for more than two years, and my process was completed in under a year, including the collection, translation, and certification of all the necessary documents. In fact, I have already recommended Your Italian Passport to friends in my Italian club. Lauren and Carlo walk you through the entire process and stay connected through any hiccups or issues. They set up your consulate appointment, which is huge! if you have tried to navigate the Italian Consulate website. And they know which documents you need! I saw other people, who had followed to the letter, the requirements on the consulate website,turned away at the window, for lack of the correct documents! For anyone who is frustrated with what they have encountered thus far, this is the place for you! And if you are just beginning the process, contact them right away. Their services are amazing and much less expensive than other avenues. I couldn't be happier with my outcome." -- Candice, Nevada
"I recently completed my Italian citizenship with the help of “Your Italian Passport”. Lauren and Carlo are consummate professionals that were a pleasure to work with. They simplified the complicated process and brought it to a successful end. They returned all my calls and emails in a timely manner and were always available and answered all questions thoroughly and promptly. They were diligent in the retrieval and preparation of all pertinent documents and paperwork. Their organizational skills are unprecedented. Without their knowledge and efficiency, I would have never been prepared. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND anyone considering claiming their Italian citizenship through ancestry, hire "Your Italian Passport" for their outstanding knowledge and expertise of the requirements and process." -- Dr Edward Buonopane
"I was very pleased with the service provided by Your Italian Passport. They are experienced and very accommodating which made the process a lot easier. I would highly recommend them for anyone seeking Italian citizenship." -- Sheilah A., Santa Clara, California
"Thank you and Carlo again for all your efforts in assembling my Italian citizenship application, I know uncovering the mystery of my great-grandfather was quite a challenge! Your persistence paid off and I greatly appreciate it. Everything went very smoothly at the consulate and I could not have asked for a better experience. I guess there is a reason 'Your Italian Passport' sorts to the top of Google searches." -- Greg M., Bishop, GA
"Lauren and Carlo were an absolute pleasure to work with. I couldn't be happier with the service they provided. I had been thinking about applying for citizenship for a few years but quickly learned that it is quite involved and requires a lot of time and effort. Do yourself a favor and use Your Italian Passport. They are knowledgeable, thorough and really care about their clients. I've already referred someone to them so that says it all. Thank you both for making me one proud, newly minted Italian citizen!" -- Rob Fiore, Boston, Massachusetts
"I can't strongly enough recommend the services from Your Italian Passport. Lauren and Carlo did things to push our applications ahead that either I would not have been able to do, or would have taken so long on my own that it would have been practically impossible. They know every step of the process, what will be accepted and what will not, and how to navigate the curve balls that will surely be thrown at you during the application process. In fact, the value of their services was very apparent during our consulate meeting when the Administrator gladly and eagerly accepted our paperwork when she found out that Lauren was the one behind it. That kind of experience is worth its weight in gold! The bottom line is that using Your Italian Passport will take the time, risk, complexity and headache out of the process compared to doing it yourself." -- Robert Giacobbe, Georgia
"My most sincere thanks to Lauren and Carlo for your professional yet personal assistance in taking care of matters regarding my Italian citizenship! What I expected to be a long, painful journey turned into an exciting experience in every aspect of the process. After many years and much research, the dreaded thought of all the paperwork and time it would take to complete this prompted me to seek professional assistance. There are many sites to choose from and after looking into all of them I selected Your Italian Passport. Boy did I pick a winner! Lauren was there for me every inch of the way. After sending her some basic family history, she went to work and much sooner than I expected I was in Miami receiving my citizenship. I am so grateful everything you have done for me I can't begin to thank you enough. Molto Grazie Lauren and Carlo." -- Randazzo Filice, Tampa, Florida
"I highly recommend Your Italian Passport for anyone interested in recognizing their Italian citizenship. Lauren and Carlo know everything about the process and they cut through all the bureaucratic red tape and really help in every step. Lauren and Carlo were always responsive to questions and professional . When I went for my appointment in the consulate, I was actually complimented on the thoroughness and organization of my application. I do not see how I could have done this without such an amazing team helping me. "-- Adele K., Boston, MA
"I started collecting the paperwork to document and apply for dual citizenship 7 years before finding Lauren & Carlo. I had all but given up. They gave us hope and were able to collect the remaining documentation. My siblings joined the adventure. When we arrived at the Italian embassy, the agent was very impressed with the organized collection of ALL paperwork and was helpful and friendly with the remaining process. Thank you, Lauren & Carlo & co!!" -- Joe S., McPherson, KS
"I am so happy to have found Your Italian Passport. Without Lauren and Carlo, I would not have been able to get everything I needed.

My consulate appointment was quick and painless thanks to their hard work." -- Brianne B., Tucson, AZ
"Go no further for your Italian Citizenship needs! I am just so pleased with the service provided by Lauren and Carlo.

I highly recommend them to anyone taking on the task of Dual Citizenship with Italy."-- Felicia F., Chapin, SC
"Your Italian Passport started this process for me in March 2014, and less than 9 months later I received my Italian Citizenship. The officer that interviewed me at the Italian Consulate in San Francisco told me that my application and documentation were perfect......she wished every submission was like mine. Thank you Lauren and Carlo." -- Dennis Simontacchi, Lakeview, OR
I want to thank you [and Carlo] for providing such a great service. Your assistance was invaluable and I am sure that I would not have been able to navigate the entire [Italian citizenship] process without your help. -- Greg P., Afton, MN
"Thank you [Lauren and Carlo] so much for all of your help, guidance, and expertise. You took what seemed like a daunting project and helped break it down into easily accomplished tasks — ultimately culminating into a painless Consulate visit!" -- David V., Los Angeles, CA
"Many members of my family knew the provinces in which my maternal grandfather and grandmother were born, but no one knew the exact comunes. In fact, when I visited Italy some years ago and spoke with my second cousins, they, too, were mistaken about the exact beginnings of my grandfather. Then I discovered Your Italian Passport. Lauren and Carlo went the extra mile - or should I say kilometer? – and never quit until they found both of my grandparents’ original Italian birth certificates for me. How cool is that?! Now, I can proceed toward my ultimate goal of obtaining dual Italian citizenship. Grazie, Lauren and Carlo!" -- John M., St. Paul, MN
"The team at Your Italian Passport are extremely knowledgeable about the requirements to obtain dual citizenship status. They're quick to understand what each client needs and how to get it in a timely manner. My entire extended family has been pleased with their service. I recommend the agency to anyone who needs assistance in their areas of expertise. With much thanks.." -- Geraldine M., Littleton, CO
"I found [Lauren and Carlo's] service to be very exact and helpful in my citizenship application. Without [their] assistance in double and triple checking the needed documents coupled with obtaining documents, our application probably wouldn't have been approved." -- Eric. S., Saint Regis, MT
"Your Italian Passport was very helpful and quick in finding my great-grandparents' naturalization documents from Ellis Island." -- Laura B., Denver, CO
"Without the help of Lauren and Carlo at Your Italian Passport, I am certain that acquiring my Italian citizenship would still be only a dream instead of a dream come true. I began this quest over two years ago, and frankly gave up in frustration and confusion several times along the way. Then I had the great luck of finding Your Italian Passport and turning the whole project over to Lauren and Carlo. They expertly organized the chaos, acquiring the necessary Italian documents, naturalization papers, apostilles, and translations. They accompanied me on my visit to the Italian consulate and handled the issues regarding the slight name changes that the interviewer wanted to discuss. I was so grateful they were there with me every step of the way. Grazie mille, Lauren and Carlo!" -- Paula Molinari, Palm Beach Gardens, FL
