Renunciation of U.S. Citizenship
Renunciation applications can only be made through an interview with one of the American Citizen Services’ offices at the U.S. Embassy in Rome or the Consulates General in Milan, Florence and Naples. Renunciation applicants are required to attend two mandatory interviews with a consular officer. The initial interview is followed by a period of reflection before the final renunciation appointment will be scheduled. The fee to renounce U.S. citizenship is $2,350.00, or the euro equivalent payable on the date of your final renunciation appointment.
For further details, please see the State Department webpage at Renunciation of Citizenship.
Due to the complexity of the renunciation process, please email the nearest consular section to schedule your first appointment.
