Hello,

Myself my husband and my little 4 year old all have our interview in Nov 24th. I have read that we will be resticted as to what we can take with us. My question is can I keep things to keep little girl entertained? ie. colouring books or sticker books etc?

Also I just wanted to say, I am new to this site, and it has been really valuable to me. SO much information and advice. Thank you all

Hello;

It really all depends on the country. The day of our interview, we were told we could not bring our son. However, after we got out of AP (Administrative Processing) and had to return to turn in my wife's passport, she brought our son with her and did not have any problems. He brought a couple of toys with him, but no food (just to be on the safe side).

I wouldn't worry too much about it. You shouldn't have a dificult time bringing in a coloring book or sticker book. The bigest No No that I can think of is no Electronic Devises and no Liquids.

Good Luck

Hi, I took my daughter (11) she was fine. Toilets clearly marked, and they had a place you could buy drinks and snacks. She chatted some. Read and had a word search. There were other younger kids there. My daughter played around with them too. My daughter was expected at the embassy, and I did have to have her passport as ID. We were there about 4 hrs.

No problem with kids at the consulate in Naples, Italy. My wife and I brought our two year old daughter, who instantly became the center of attention of the consulate staff. One quick question about how we met and then they turned their attention to her.

As previously mentioned, everything differs from consulate/embassy to consulate/embassy. You cannot bring laptops or cell phones or electronical products of that nature to the consulate in Naples, but basically everything else is fair game, so coloring books, pictures, whatever else would be fine.

The child may not be required to attend, sheck with the consulate. They would probably allow you to bring a coloring book and crayons after they inspect them, but it is consulate specific, they are pretty strict but mostly about bags, purses, etc. How a coloring book would differ from a stack of papers for the interview is beyond me. If they do not let you bring them in they will have a place to keep them until you leave.
