A Response from the Italian Consulate!

Filename: j0444615.jpgJust a quick update!

Around 9:30 last night I decided to send an e-mail to the Italian Consulate in Newark, NJ. My previous attempts to contact them via e-mail were unsuccessful. My e-mail simply asked whether I could do my own translations or would I have to resort to having a translator do the translation. Their response arrived today!

Ok, so what? What’s the big deal?

Well, from having read about other applicants never receiving a response, like I formerly did, or having to wait quite a long time to hear back, this was indeed an improvement. A response given in less than 24 hours. And what was there response?

Applicants must use one of the translators known to the consulate. If you too are applying through the consulate in Newark, here is who you can contact:


Mr. Maurizio Guercini
1271 Alicia Avenue
Teaneck, NJ 07666
Tel. 201 837 4468

Mr. Raffaele Cimina
1111 Dogwood Circle
Blue Bell, PA 19422
Tel. 267 304 6226

Ms.Olga Negrini
437 Lincoln St.
Carlstadt, NJ 07072
Tel. 201 460 8034

Ms. Rosanna Giammanco Frangia
22 Windermere Rd
Staten Island, NY
Tel. 718 727 7728

This information cannot be found on the consulate’s website… At least not that I have come across it. I scoured the site many times and did not find anything. Also, appointments must now be made. A recent applicant stated that a consulate officer said the processing was going much faster due to the new addition of appointments. I still don’t know how you can make an appointment – whether you need to send in a form or call, but once I find out, I will definitely let you know.

Way to go Newark! Keep up the good work!

  1. […] I’ve decided to set a deadline for myself in hopes of ending all procrastination, and to just finish collecting all my documents for my dual citizenship. I only have a couple left, and I need to start having everything apostilled, translated and amended. If you’re looking for a translator for your American documents, and are applying through Newark Consulate in Newark, New Jersey, please refer to the below list. I also have it posted here. […]
