VAT Tax refund
I recently visited Italy and bought jewelry- was charged a vat tax and was informed that I could apply for a refund on the VAT tax since I was bringing the items out of Italy- I completed the VAT Tax process @ the Naples airport and asked that the VAT tax be applied to my credit card- I did it this way as I wanted to avoid getting EUros since I was heading home- As of today I have not received the VAT tax refund and I was told it would take 7 business days and I left 10/18- SO if you are heading to Italy be sure to take the VAT tax refund @ the airport before you leave as I think I will never see my VAT tax refund

How to book appointments Boston Italian Consulate
I have been trying to book appointments with the consulate for citizenship. They are now done on-line. I do get to the appointment calendar page but do not see how to actually book the appointment. All I see is none available, or on those day that it should be there is no way to either click on the date or otherwise. Any help.
