My parents migrated to...

My parents migrated to Australia in the early 1950s, but were naturalized in late 50s, before I was born in 1965. They were made to give up their Italian citizenship. How can I get dual citizenship now?

Lawyer's Assistant: What is your official status? Do you have any pending applications or petitions with USCIS?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Has anything been filed or reported?

No

Lawyer's Assistant: Anything else you want the lawyer to know before I connect you?

I have two elder sisters, one was born before they were naturalized, so she could get dual, but has not tired.

No they were both naturalized at the same time. Is there not any way to get around the system, some loop hole?
