I have recently heard from the Houston Consulate, acknowledging my Italian Citizenship. My questions, if anyone can answer:
1. Did the info and documents I submitted to the Consulate ever go to somewhere/anywhere (my region) in Italy, or were they just reviewed by the Consulate, and the people at the Consulate made the decision to grant my citizenship? What is the process?
2. Is the citizenship then confirmed and documented by the AIRE? What is the AIRE and am I required to submit it?
3. Although I am eligible (I guess) for an EU passport, I really don't need it right now, and prefer to wait. Is there any problem with this? Am I required to get the passport now? If I don't, will it complicate my getting it in, say, a year from now?
Thanks for help with answers.
