Success At Chicago Consulate!

Postby giam0005 » 15 May 2009, 23:27

At least I think so. They accepted our application that we had mailed in earlier and said everything was in order with it. We filled out registration papers for AIRE as well.

We were told that once the comune in Italy registers us, we can apply for Italian birth certificates and then for passports. I believe our application has to travel around to other Consulates and to Rome before our comune has to deal with it or register us in AIRE. Chicago told us it would take 3-4 months.

Does anyone have any experience or insight into this phase of the process? We are anxiously waiting for when we can apply for our passports.

Thanks!

Wow congradualtions..... how long did the wait take once you put the submitte the application? I was planning on using NY (my daughter is there) since Chicago has such a bad reputation.

In any case again good luck and congradulations.

I'd wait four months then submit your passport application.
