Where to get the Certificate of Non-Naturalization?
The only entity authorized to issue this certificate is the National Electoral Chamber of Argentina. Therefore, you must go to the following address to request the certificate: Av. Leandro N. Alem 232 of the Autonomous City of Buenos Aires in the Argentine Republic.
You can also get it virtually, through the official website of the CNE, the process was described in the previous section. The only difference with respect to the presence form is that all the documents must be fully digitized and the verification of the documents may take a little longer.
Both processes are very simple, but due to the current pandemic, requests are only being processed or made virtually.
Information Included in the Certificate of Non-Naturalization
The primary data that must be reflected is the certification of not being an Argentine citizen or that he was not naturalized at the time of emigration. Then, the personal data of the person, the address of where he currently resides, marital status and among others must be shown.
But without a doubt, the most important thing is that all the variants of the names that the person has in their legal documentation are reflected in the document. Because many of the Italian people who entered Argentina in previous years adapted their names to Spanish.
Therefore, in the Italian birth certificate it may have its original name, but it may have its name adapted to Spanish in the marriage certificate or some other. In that sense, the Certificate of Non-Naturalization must reflect all the names that at some point identified them.
This is because the Italian records have the name in its original form, and if this document is presented with a modified name. The certificate may not be significant, therefore, all the variations of the name that the person has had throughout his life are presented.
One of the main problems is precisely the name of the Italian, because thanks to his arrival and the translation or modification of his name, it becomes very difficult to prove a real kinship with the person of European origin.
Therefore, it is important to always have at hand all the minutes where all the variations of the person’s names are presented. Thus, you can keep track of and record the changes that were made to the person’s identity over time.
This will make the proof of family relationships much easier. These problems always derive from the translation made to the original birth certificates when entering the country.
Another very important problem is that the birth certificates for their old age are usually in poor condition. Therefore, on many occasions the original documents are very damaged, in those cases it is important to acquire a copy that is certified by the Italian authorities.
Even the translated birth certificate can work, the only detail is that the original name of the person who immigrated to the country in previous years would not appear. This would cause the certificate to lose great validity before the Italian authorities, because the original name is very important for its identification.
What is it?
Many years ago, trade relations between countries were more rigid. Therefore, people were not allowed to have dual citizenship, so if a person emigrated from one country to another they had to renounce their old nationality in order to acquire the new one.
The dynamics of emigration is in constant change, that is, before emigrating from European countries to Argentina due to the war that took place in those countries. However, as the years went by, European nations managed to grow and advance rapidly, while Latin countries like Argentina not so much.
For that reason, many of the people who initially quit to their old nationality, they wanted to return to their countries of origin. But for that there is not so much problem, the problem begins when they want to transfer their nationality to their descendants.
Because it must be evaluated, if the person had the child before or after naturalizing Argentine. If the person of European origin naturalized Argentine before having his child, the child does not have the right to obtain European nationality. On the contrary, if the person had their child before becoming Argentine, they must prove what happened in order to acquire European nationality.
And to prove what happened, you need the birth certificates and the Certificate of Non-Naturalization. Through them the dates are evaluated and a verdict is reached. So, request your certificate!
