Getting Married in Italy
We are planning to get married in Italy early next year. I am getting conflicting information on what I need to provide from the US versus what needs to be done in Italy.

We are both previously married, so what do I need to bring to the consulate and what documents do you need to provide to me to take with me to Italy so we can get married.

Would sincerely appreciate your help to clear up the matter.

Just wondering if I will need a visa to enter Italy if I hold a US passport with all the articles I'm reading about the EU changing requirements

Working in Italy
I am planing to work in Italy for about 18 months. I have been going thru the visa process. All of my paper work is in for translation and then goes to the Italian consulate for review and or approval. If some thing goes south or wrong,,please respond to,the alternative of working for 90 days on my passport. Do I have to leave Italy and return to the US at the end of 90 days? Or can I leave italy for another nearby country for a short period of time then return to italy to work again on my passport.

Obtaining a Visa and translating transcripts
This is for people that had questions about this office, I received my Italian visa from them last year, they rarely answer the phone or email back, you must go right when they open with all of your paper work in hand, make sure you have double of everything just in case. The guy may be late and there may be a small line but once he showed up he stamped my papers and everything and it all worked out.

You only need an Italian visa if you plan to live in Italy for over 90 days, I believe you do not need one if you will be traveling back and forth between Italy and other countries.

Once all of this is received you will ship it with your passport to San Fransisco, get a tracking number just in case, mine took about a month to get back to me so plan ahead.
Once I arrived in Italy I was told I also had to get the permesso di soggiorno, it took 3 months for them to get it back to me and it really is unnecessary.

I am about to go back and study for a year and need to get my transcripts translated to Italian language an the Italian grading system, I was told that this consulate also does this, does anyone know if that is true?

School Class Trip to Italy
Hi, my son's university class is planning a trip to Italy ( and France and Spain) in May. He needs a Schengen visa to join the trip. Can we apply for a visa through your office? And how do we make an appointment and where can we get information for visa application? thanks

Why is it so hard to get simple information?
We are planning to go to Florence Italy at the end of September. It seems like a simple question as to whether we need to get a visa to visit or not,but with everyone trying to sell us something online,we can't get this question answered. Do we need a visa,and if so, what do we have to do to get it? At the web site for the consulate it does give the list of visa free countries,which the US doesn't seem to be one. It would be so very simple to also have a line to click on that page to go to visa applications for US citizens to apply for a visitor visa. Just saying......
