I am Italian and have two children born here in the UK. The youngest is 8 months. We've been visiting my parent in Italy last month, and since the registration in the Italian registry had not been completed we used her Mauritian passport (my wife is Mauritian and we got passport and citizenship in 6 days).
When we returned from Italy, the UK border control issued for my daughter a 3-month visa because she doesn't have any Italian (European Union) document.
Today I found out that apparently the consulate has never sent the document over to Italy and before that happens I am unable to request any ID.
Is there any other way I can prove her right to stay here?
UPDATE: I finally managed to talk with somebody at the Italian consulate (after 1.5 hours on the phone). They received the document in February but for some reason they never looked at them. 5 minutes at the phone and the file is good to go... They couldn't give any advise on the VISA.
I know this doesn't answer the question but if somebody else has applied for anything at the Italian consulate, I suggest you call from time to time and check what is happening!
