2.5 What documents do I need to bring to my appointment?

Please read the checklist carefully before submitting your child’s passport application. You can find the checklist and the passport application form (MOD2) in the “Forms” section of this website.

You should fill in the passport application form before coming to your appointment. Please be advised that if you fail to submit the items listed in the checklist, your child’s passport application will be rejected.

If you are applying for a child between 12 and 17 years of age, you must submit:

 

  • a passport application form (for children between 12 and 17 years of age) MOD2 (pdf / doc)
  • a photocopy of the mother’s passport or identity card (clearly showing their photograph and signature)
  • a photocopy of the father’s passport or identity card (clearly showing their photograph and signature)
  • your child’s current expired or damaged passport
    • If your child’s passport has been lost or stolen, you must submit a Lost/Stolen Report Form (pdf/doc) on their behalf. You must also provide us with a photocopy of their lost or stolen passport and/or another form of identity.
    • If you are applying for your child’s first Italian passport, you must bring their Italian identity card or another passport issued by a foreign government.
  • 2 recent and identical passport photographs, which must meet ICAO rules. Please see photograph guidelines for more information.

For afternoon appointments, you will also need to submit:

- a postal order made payable to the “Italian Consulate General” for the amount of click here

- a pre-paid special delivery envelope paid up to 500g. We will use this envelope to post the new passport back to you. Click here

PLEASE NOTE:
• Your child’s passport application form (MOD2) must be signed by both parents. This is mandatory even if you are single, married, separated or divorced from the mother or father of your child.

• If one of the parents is an EU citizen, he or she can complete and sign the passport application form MOD2 in person or at home. Don’t forget to provide a photocopy of their passport or Identity card (clearly showing their photograph and signature) so that we can verify that the signatures match.

• If one of the parents is not an EU citizen, he or she must complete and sign MOD2 in person. If he or she lives near Bedford, Birmingham, Cardiff, Liverpool or Manchester, their signature can be witnessed by one of our Honorary Consuls instead.

• If one of the parents is not an EU citizen and doesn’t live in England or Wales, you must ask them to sign a Parental Consent form, in person, at their nearest Italian Consulate/Embassy or Questura (police station) in Italy.

• If the other parent refuses to sign the passport application form MOD2, you can apply for a Consular Decree which will allow the Consul General to authorise the issue of your child’s passport. The Consul General in London can only serve as Guardianship Judge for children that live in England and Wales. If your child lives in Italy, you should get in touch with the Tribunale dei Minori.

• If the other parent is deceased, you must provide a death certificate with your child’s passport application form (MOD2). If the death certificate is not written in Italian or English, you must provide a multilingual certificate or a legalised Italian translation.
