3.1. Who can apply?

Your child must have Italian nationality to be eligible for an Italian passport.

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

PLEASE NOTE:

If your child

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

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

INSTRUCTIONS FOR NEWBORNS

Parents must post their child’s birth certificate (complete with apostille) to the Registry Office of the Italian Consulate before submitting a passport application. It is necessary to send the birth certificate beforehand so that the Registry Office can verify that the child is born to an Italian national.

In short, we are unable to accept passport applications for newborns if their birth certificate has not been registered at the Consulate and forwarded on to the town hall (comune) of reference in Italy.
