The Visa process is beginning...

It's been a busy week. We had visitors at work from Italy for a class and meetings Tuesday through Thursday, so that took up quite a bit of time with the days being full and then dinners in the evening. It was fun though!

The big news this week is that we've been given a list of documents to compile for the visa process. The interesting thing that we have to do is get several of them translated into Italian and "legalized" by the Italian embassy. No real instructions on how to do that, however.

After some super sleuthing Patrick found out that we can get the legalization done by the Italian consulate in Portland, and they referred us to a translator, also in Portland. Now we just have to get all of the documentation together, here's what we need:
  • A letter of intent from my employer (translated/legalized)
  • My diplomas (translated/legalized)
  • My resume
  • Copies of passports
  • Marriage certificate (translated/legalized)
  • Brandon's birth certificate (translated/legalized)

The only one we haven't found yet is my undergrad diploma. I graduated 16 years ago and haven't had to actually do anything with it since, but I'm pretty sure it's in a tote in the garage. At least I hope so, because I can't find it in any other logical locations, and I'll have to get a new one from DU if it's not there!

I leave you all with this question - how many of you can put your hands on all of this documentation within a few minutes? It has been a little harder than I thought!
