That's bad timing. Is your youngest a minor? If so, I doubt it will be a problem. If not, they may make it an issue, but if you explain the situation and bring an affidavit, they may let it pass. Unfortunately, there's no way to be sure.

If your appointment is set for May/June, it may be possible to exchange a date with someone for the following week. Perhaps the consulate would be willing to help you with this. No harm in trying.

Well, if the final that day was in his Italian class, I bet the professor would work something out. :lol:

I don't know about Miami, but the New York and Los Angeles consulates allow you to belatedly register the birth of adult children once your own citizenship has been recognized. It is a simple process which can take as little as a week or two to complete.

Basically, you fill out a form, attach your son's certified/translated/apostilled birth certificate along with a photocpy of your own Italian passport and mail the entire package to your consulate. See the "Birth" section on this page for additional info.


I used this method to register my 23 year-old son with the NYC consulate. A week after I mailed the application, he received a letter of recognition and inviting him to come to the consulate to apply for his passport.

I requested an appointment for myself, my brother and my sister so that we could all file at the same time. I was given an appointment for February and I specifically asked if all three of us were required to show up. The official said not for this first meeting. I was under the impression that if all my documents were accepted, there wouldn't need to be a follow up meeting. Not sure about the process though. I guess my brother and sister would have to fill out an application at some point though so it seemed odd that they would not be required to attend the first meeting with me.

I think the consulate's experience is such that there is always a second meeting. Oftentimes a third as well. :?

They won't accept a gift, do not bother. However, humble graciousness always goes over well.

It won't hurt to add them to your Christmas list as well.

Never know when you might need a friend at the consulate. :)

I will most definitely be courteous, polite, humble and gracious. I read someone's account about being to the point and not offering up any information that isn't specifically asked for. Being terse, or curt while still being polite and courteous. Yeah, will have to add them to the Xmas card list, hopefully by next year I will already be a recognized citizen too. :) Being unrecognized isn't any fun. ;)
