It's the end of October and our visa application still isn't ready to be submitted.
At the eleventh hour we spotted a problem - the Italian documents had to be translated. And not only that (I'm capable of translating them myself so that wouldn't have been a problem) but they have to be translated by a commercial translator unconnected with us. There's a half-page of rules about being on the translator's letterhead, etc. etc. Che noia!
The past few weeks have been one such discovery after another - from remembering about the medical to having to find a registered birth certificate (thanks Dad). I wonder if there are any others to hit us.
Well, the documents are now - I hope - being checked by the translator. Perhaps we'll get it in on Monday.
