How to apply for a passport - for Italians who are permanently unable to travel

Biometric data capture, in particular fingerprinting, is a prerequisite for the issue of an Italian passport.

The only exception allowed is if the applicant suffers from a medical condition which renders them permanently unable to travel.

Please note that the inability to travel must be permanent, not temporary.

To apply for a passport without fingerprints applicants must submit, in addition to the normal passport documentation, a medical certificate issued by a hospital or by their GP certifying that the applicant is “PERMANENTLY UNABLE TO TRAVEL”.

Any certificate with a different wording will not be accepted.
