What is the AIRE

AIRE, Italian acronym for Registry Office for Italian Citizens Residing Abroad, was created with the law 27th October 1988, n.470 and holds the details of Italian citizens who intend to reside abroad for a period longer than twelve months. It is managed by the Town Halls (comune) in Italy based on the information supplied by the diplomatic missions abroad.
The AIRE registration is a civil right and is mandatory, it is the prerequisite to benefit from a series of services provided by the Consular offices abroad, and also to exercise important rights, such as:

  • to vote for political elections and national referenda by post in the country of residence, and for the election of Italian representatives of the European Parliament at polling stations set up by the diplomatic mission networks in countries around the European Union;
  • The possibility to request the release or the renewal of identity and travel documents, and certificates.
