What Clients Say:
With the help of IDC, my brother and I successfully completed and submitted our Italian citizenship applications and passport. We did experience a few bumps along the way, but IDC’s communication was extremely useful and courteous both professionally and personally. Our citizenship lawyer was wonderful and I don’t think I could have navigated the citizenship process without their assistance and experience. I thank everyone at IDC, but most thanks goes to Claudia for helping us realize the dream. I have spoken to relatives about the experience, and now I’m sharing it with everyone else.
My Italian citizenship process began in three years ago. I reached out to IDC and talked with Marco, the Italian attorney. I immediately felt he was somebody I could trust. He worked quickly to prepare for the citizenship process. Both Marco and Claudia set everything up for me. Since they could always be reached, I never felt alone in the process. They worked tirelessly to make my dreams come to fruition. In December, I received word that both my children and I were Italian citizens. The entire IDC team were wonderful to work with, making the process as painless as possible for me.
I made contact with IDC to see if I could obtain Italian citizenship through my mother. I made a few inquiries with other firms. However, IDC took the time to listen to my set of circumstances and let me know I qualified for citizenship. Marco and his team worked hard to simplify the process, responding quickly to my questions and concerns and provided me with answers I needed to feel at ease. On the day of my consulate appointment, everything went great due to their comprehensive preparation.
I do not hesitate to recommend IDC’s service. I had a unique case because I chose to file my citizenship application in Italy. Marco and the rest of the IDC staff assisted me in gathering the necessary documents and paperwork and helping me navigate the entire process. They came with me to every meeting and completely explained what was going on. They assisted me in fulfilling the pertinent residency requirements, file for healthcare coverage, get an apartment lease and so much more. I knew I could rely on IDC, and I chose to live close to the office, so they could assist me if there was something I was unsure of. IDC – Claudia, Marco and others – care very much about their clients – going above and beyond for them when necessary. They are not just advisors in the Italian citizenship application process but friends. I am more than happy with the results I got thanks to their help.
If you’re trying to maneuver through the Italian citizenship process, don’t go it alone. You need to professionals at IDC to help you through it all. My problems came when I had to deal with the local embassy that led to a long-drawn-out transaction. They were there every step of the way, providing me with great advice and doing any extra work when necessary. They were polite and positive during the whole thing. I cannot say enough positive things about Marco and the team. It was such a great experience.
IDC was definitely worth the money I paid to attain my dual citizenship. When I first began looking into the dual citizenship process, I was overwhelmed by it all. There were so many issues to contend with; I was worried I’d be denied. Marco looked over the documents I submitted to him, and he let me know that I should be approved for citizenship. If I was denied, I would be refunded. He was right, and now I have dual citizenship. Both Marco and Claudia are extremely organized and professional. If you’d seen the binder of information I had, your jaw would have dropped. However, they organized it just the way the citizenship officer needed it. The entire process was easy, and I recommend them for anybody who is trying to attain Italian citizenship.
I’ve been working with Marco and the IDC team for over a year, and they truly are the best of the best. I had a fairly complicated case, as I lived in another area of the world. It made the task of gating the necessary documents for the process a little more complicated. Each country has their own rules. Still, they took the situation in stride, and I was able to turn in the application before the projected date. On top of that, they were available anytime I needed them. In fact, their average response time to emails is two hours. If you plan to submit an Italian citizenship application, IDC is who you need on your side.
I’m not quite sure, without Marco’s help, I could have successfully become an Italian citizen. There’s no doubt that some documents could be attained easily on one’s own time, but the reality is that gathering the documents in Italy isn’t as easy when you don’t live close by. This is why I employed the services of Marco and IDC. You find out just how incorrect your grandmother was from time to time. It’s been a great learning experience about my family history too. My Italian citizenship process should be finalized by June – something else Marco has been handling for me perfectly. While paying per minute terrified me, Marco was able to get things set up with the consulate quickly and easily.
For the best Italian citizenship service company, you need IDC. They are extremely intelligent and knowledgeable about the process. They were all very responsive and diligent. IDC will take care of everything for you which made the process a pleasure. I’m glad I reached out to them, as I am an Italian citizen now.
There’s no way to give Marco and the IDC a more positive review than I’m giving now. I’ve lived and worked all around the world, and the service I received from Marco is better than I could have ever imagined. He makes sure to do in-depth research and will respond to any questions or comments you may have. My family has lived in Florence, Italy for the last year, and I can tell you the experience would have been extremely difficult without Marco’s assistance in the matter.
