Application Submitted

Well, its official. I filled out the documents and signed the application and off it went. Hope to hear something by August I think. The consulate in Boston said they dont do much in Italy over the summer.. Figures. Thanks to everyone for their help. A fun, yet daunting process. I will let you know when I get the official letter..

Cool! I would not imagine the Italians doing much during the summer, and I'm questioning whether you'll hear from them in August. Not trying to burst your bubble. August is the prime vacation time for Italians in Italy.. I'm wondering if they do the same here. :?:

From personal experience I can tell you that, except for the last couple of weeks of August (Ferragosto), public offices are open in the summer months just as they are in the other 3 seasons.

Well that's good. Italy is pretty much a ghost town in August.

No, it's changed quite a bit. More and more stores are taking their weeks off in July or the first part of August, so they come back and stay open the last two weeks of August.
