6.2 E.T.D processing time and validity

An Emergency Travel Document (ETD) can be issued if your passport or Identity Card has been lost, stolen or damaged. Unlike your normal passport or Identity Card, which is valid for 10 years, it is only valid for 5 days from the date of issue and can only be used to travel to Italy or to another European country if you formally live there.

You can apply for an Emergency Travel Document in person at the Italian Consulate General in London without an appointment. You can apply Monday to Friday between 9.00 and 12.30 and on Saturdays between 9.00 and 13.00.
