Permesso di Soggiorno... Not yet...

Yesterday, I drove to the Questura in Catania for my 9:30 Permesso di Soggiorno appointment. I must say that having an appointment makes it so much easier. The lines in the Questura can be very daunting and eye opening. My first Permesso di Soggiorno had expired, and I renewed the document a few weeks ago through the post office Kit. I was so surprised to hear back from them so soon. Thinking that I would be walking away with a new 5 year Permesso di Soggiorno was a crazy thought! And in fact, I was wrong. The appointment was only to collect my pictures and take my finger prints. (Again) But, I'm in no rush... :)

I love your photos. My husband wants to go to Malta when we get to Sicily.

I hear you on this one! Incredible how much angst one piece of paper can bring. I'm set for another 5 years, but like you said, there's no rush. One guy at the questura actually said that nobody could kick me out anyway if my papers were late in coming (and he said it so casually la-dee-da) -- because I'm married to an italian!

jmisgro- Looking forward to hearing from you! Malta is a quick trip away...

rowena- Good thing we're married to them! :) Are you interested in applying for citizenship?

Rowena said...

Jilli, I have no intention of going for citizenship. Unless someone can point out the benefits (and they had better be good), being a citizen of the US of A is plenty enough work for me! ;-)
