Passport not received!
I've been to the Italian Honorary Consulate in Cardiff on the 16th of April 2018, to renew my passport, during my appointment my biometric data was collected along with the required documentations and payed fee. Before I left I was told that my new passport would be with me withing around 30 days. I still haven't received my new passport. Everytime I try to call nobody answer the phone and there is no option to leave a message. Emailed the Consulate in London but still had no reply. What should I do???

I wanted to renew my passport. I tried for 2 weeks straight calling everyday and had no luck at all! Couldn't find an alternative phone number nor email address. So I decided to do the simplest thing. WRITE A LETTER. I explained what I wanted and included my personal details. I sent it 1st class and I got a call back the next day with an appointment following 2 days after that!

When I got there I was welcomed with a smile and kind gestures. It is literally a 2 persons army there. They are handling everything and I was not surprised that they couldn't pick up the phone. The Italian embassy should clearly give them more support as they are doing the most they can with what they have!

Impossible to get in contact
I need to renew the passport for my teenagers children. I understand they should come in person. However I am unable to book an appointment as the telephone line is always busy, and when free, nobody answers. It is weeks that I am trying to call, and the matter is becoming urgent. No mail to contact the office as well. What to do? I cannot let them taking days off school for a visit to a consulate with no guarantee to sort out in the day the matter relative to their passport. This is really shameful, Italy... :( where else to go? We live in Torquay.
