I did so without using a lawyer and the process was somewhat time consuming (lots of paperwork), but not difficult. The application was approved in about 8 months.In the meantime, my mom used temporary health insurance (there are many plans available, e.g. for turists) to have some coverage for unexpected medical expenses. The problem…See More

I've been living in the beautiful bay Area for over 8 yrs. I just joined the site and I wished I knew about it earlier. I am a Solar Product Developer Designer, Industrial Designer by Education, looking for Italian American professional connections. Ideally I would like to work in the US but for Italian Companies or vice versa.

Spero di sentirti presto, Ciao

Michele, in Italy they've created sort of a similar network, using Basecamp, I believe. You should contact them and have them switch over to this system. There should be one central online community for BAIA.
