Early Christmas Present: Is this the "first letter"

Postby adolfo2 » Sat Dec 16, 2006 10:01 am

Hi All:

Received this yesterday :D (papers submitted in March '06).

I have a few questions for the group as calling the Consolato is futile.

1. Is this the first communique/letter everyone talks about?
2. It mentions having sent my birth certificate to the local comune in Italy but nothing about sending my Marriage certificate. Is this automatic?
3. I should be getting a second letter "Welcome" from my comune?
4. Then a "package" from A.I.R.E.?

Happy Holidays from "Excited in NY"

Hi,

I got the same letter a few months ago. That's all you'll get. They've already registered you in AIRE. Just save that letter, make copies of it. Take it to the consulate some morning and get your passport, equipped with 2 passport pictures.

Remember: if you have minor kids, your spouse will have to consent to the passport. And carry cash--the consulate doesn't take credit or "bancomat" cards.

Auguri, it's a great feeling, isn't it?

That's great news - congratulations! I had my documents accepted in early June, so I'll keep my fingers crossed. How many generations back did you go? (I wonder whether it makes any difference?)

Accepting the application and being granted Citizenship are two different things.

I strongly suspect you have to wait for the letter.

Regards,
Adolfo
