There are no available appointments at the Italian Consulate in New York until late January. We recommend you check the consulate for appointments daily as canceled appointments are put back in the system. If you are eligible to apply for your visa through Group Processing, we would highly encourage you do so.
If your permanent home address is in a jurisdiction outside of the New York consulate jurisdiction, you may want to consider applying at a different consulate. Keep in mind other consulates may take up to 4 weeks to process your visa so you will have to plan accordingly. Securing an appointment at this time will require patience and persistence. Please contact OGS if you have any questions or concerns.
