Passports

A passport is a document issued for both travel and identification purposes:

  • In Italy, passports are issued by the police stations (Questure) of the State Police (Polizia di Stato);
  • Abroad, passports are issued by diplomatic and consular representations.

It is valid for all countries recognized by the Italian Government, and upon request, can be made valid for countries whose governments are not recognized by indicating specific destinations (Article 2 of Law 1185/67).

It is essential to possess a passport for entry into most non-European countries. Before embarking on a journey, we recommend that you visit the website www.viaggiaresicuri.it. There, you can verify, for each destination country, updated information on the required travel documents and any specific restrictions or requirements.

Types of passports according to current regulations:

a) Ordinary Passport: a 48-page booklet;

b) Temporary Passport: a 16-page booklet.

Italian citizens residing within the jurisdiction of this Consular Chancellery, duly registered with the AIRE, can apply for a passport. To determine your relevant consulate, visit our Consular Network page.

To improve service efficiency, this Consular Chancellery receives passport applications by appointment only, except for cases of proven and documented urgency (for information on emergency appointments, click here).

To schedule an appointment, create an account on the Prenot@Mi portal and proceed independently with the booking, which can be either single or multiple.

Before initiating the passport application procedure, individuals who:

  • Were born abroad (not in Italy);
  • Acquired Italian citizenship abroad or in Italy (but not through this Consular Chancellery);
  • Acquired Italian citizenship through marriage abroad or in Italy (but not through this Consular Chancellery),

must ensure that their birth certificate has been registered with the municipality of their AIRE registration.

On the day of the appointment, you must appear in person at the counter of the Consular Chancellery with the required documentation.
