Just a quick update!
Around 9:30 last night I decided to send an e-mail to the Italian Consulate in Newark, NJ. My previous attempts to contact them via e-mail were unsuccessful. My e-mail simply asked whether I could do my own translations or would I have to resort to having a translator do the translation. Their response arrived today!
Ok, so what? What’s the big deal?
Well, from having read about other applicants never receiving a response, like I formerly did, or having to wait quite a long time to hear back, this was indeed an improvement. A response given in less than 24 hours. And what was there response?

This information cannot be found on the consulate’s website… At least not that I have come across it. I scoured the site many times and did not find anything. Also, appointments must now be made. A recent applicant stated that a consulate officer said the processing was going much faster due to the new addition of appointments. I still don’t know how you can make an appointment – whether you need to send in a form or call, but once I find out, I will definitely let you know.
Way to go Newark! Keep up the good work!
