I received an Italian Visa with multiple entries (Shengen Visa) for up to 90 days. I wasn't able to travel on the date they issued the Visa for based on the flight information and dates I provided. The Visa is still valid and I now want to travel to Europe and use it before it expires. I received the Visa at the Los Angeles consulate who has told me that I can't use the Visa as I am no longer traveling with the original dates I gave even though the Visa is still valid. I find this hard to believe or understand as the Visa is still valid for the period. The consulate in Detroit said it would be ok. I am now confused as to whether I can use it to travel - PLEASE HELP!
