As of July 8, 2014 every individual over the age of 18 submitting a jure sanguinis application must pay a €300 fee at the time the application is submitted.
The fee must be paid in US Dollars, and unless noted below is subject to current exchange rates. If no payment type is specified below, a money order is always a safe bet. Money orders, cashier’s checks, and certified checks can be made payable to the Consulate General of Italy of (city name). Please make sure that you have a separate money order, cashier’s check, or certified check for each member of your family who is submitting an application, as payments are associated with individual file numbers.
Boston: Cash or money order (preferred). Use the current trimester’s exchange rate, which can apparently be found on the bulletin board for the Consulate. I cannot locate this bulletin board, will post later with updates.
Chicago: Payment type not specified, fee until December 31, 2014 is $382.10
Detroit: Payment type not specified
Houston: Payment type not specified
Lost Angeles: Money order. Bank daily exchange rates are not accepted, and payments must be based on the Consulate’s tarrife, a link to which can be found here (click on the word “Tariffe”).
Miami: Cash or money order
New York: Payment type not specified
Philadelphia: Money Order, certified check, cashier’s check – based on Consulate’s tarrife, which can be found here.
San Francisco: Cashier’s check or money order, fee until December 31, 2014 is $382.10
The fee is more than we used to have to pay, but it is still a very small fee to have your citizenship recognized! To put it in perspective, to gain US Citizenship, one must submit a $380 fee – we only have to pay about half of that!
