-Noong nagpa sign ako sa Prefettura, wala daw sa list nila ang consul na nag sign sa translation ng driver's license ko kaya ayaw nila i authenticate. If mangyari din sa inyo ito, kunin nyo yung Fax number ng Prefettura at tumawag sa Philippine Consulate. I request sa consulate na iforward by fax ang signature sa Prefettura.
