Apply for an Italian passport

IMPORTANT:

  • DUE TO THE HIGH VOLUME OF PASSPORT APPLICATIONS RECEIVED, IT IS ADVISABLE TO ALLOW SUITABLE TIME WHEN CONSIDERING APPLYING FOR A PASSPORT;
  • YOU ARE STRONGLY ADVISED NOT TO BOOK OR MAKE TRAVEL ARRAGEMENTS UNTIL YOU ARE IN POSSESSION OF A VALID PASSPORT – DOING SO IS AT YOUR OWN RISK. PREPAID TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS OR BOOKINGS OF ANY KIND WILL NOT BE CONSIDERED AN EMERGENCY FOR PASSPORT RENEWALS;
  • In order to make our services more efficient, access to the Consulate General Passport office is by appointment only;
  • All Italian citizens can apply for an Italian passport, provided that they are resident within the constituency of the Italian Consulate General in London, and formally registered A.I.R.E. (Anagrafe Italiani Residenti all’Estero)
  • Ctizens residing in the future district of Manchester who already have a Prenot@mi account and are registered with the Consulate General in London will have to select "United Kingdom - Manchester, Consulate of Italy" as their pertinent site, via the "Change Consulate" option. Those who do not have a Prenot@mi account will have to register on the portal and select "United Kingdom - Manchester, Consulate of Italy" as their pertinent site from the start.

Prior to applying for a passport, please ensure that your birth certificate has been formally registered with the Italian authorities (Town Hall/Comune A.I.R.E.). In the event that your birth certificate is NOT registered in Italy, the original birth certificate (legalised with apostille and an Italian translation) must be presented with your passport application.

The abovementioned is applicable to all Italian Citizens regardless if you were in possession of a previous passport, and in particular to those:

  • That where born abroad (outside of Italy);
  • Or that have acquired their Italian Citizenship abroad or in Italy (but not via the Italian Consulate General in London);
  • Or that have acquired their Italian Citizenship abroad or in Italy via marriage (but not via the Italian Consulate General in London).

For further information on all matters related to how to register a birth certificate, please consult our Registry office section.
