1.1. Who can apply?

You must have Italian nationality to be eligible for an Italian passport.

You must be resident in England or Wales and be registered with the Italian Consulate in London (A.I.R.E or Anagrafe Italiani Residenti all’Estero). For information on how to register in A.I.R.E click here

If you are not registered with the Italian Consulate in London, you can still apply, but your passport will only be issued if other Italian authorities authorise us to do so. After you have submitted your application, the process can take up to 30 days.

PLEASE NOTE:

If you

• were born outside of Italy
• obtained Italian citizenship in Italy or from an Italian Consulate/Embassy outside of England
• obtained Italian citizenship by marriage in Italy or from an Italian Consulate/Embassy outside of England

you are strongly advised to check that your birth certificate has been registered at your town hall (comune) of reference in Italy, even if you have been issued with an Italian passport in the past.

If you have not registered your birth certificate in Italy, you must provide us with an original legalized birth certificate and a certified translation together with your passport application.
