I am an Italian citizen residing in the Republic of Ireland. Why do I have to register with AIRE (Registry of Italian citizens abroad)?


The registration with AIRE (Registry of Italian citizens abroad created with law n.470 of 27th October 1988) is a right and duty of the citizen (art. 6 law 470/1988). Moreover, it is a prerequisite to benefit from some of the services provided by the Consulates abroad, to obtain all the documents and certificates that can be issued by the Consular offices. Furthermore it is a prerequisite to be entitled to claim certain rights such as the right to vote at the political elections and at referendums by absentee ballot in the country of residence, and to elect the Italian members for the seats reserved to the diplomatic and consular representatives of the EU countries in the European Parliament.

I am an Italian citizen residing in the Republic of Ireland. My driving licence expired/was stolen/was lost. How can I get it back/renew it?

The renewal of the driving licence must be done only by the Italian Motor Tax Office (Motorizzazione Civile). The document cannot be renewed by this Embassy.

Note that: It is possible to exchange the driving licence only before the document expires. If the driving licence is expired it is necessary to present a statement issued by the Authority who issued the driving licence, the Italian Motor Tax Office (Motorizzazione Civile), duly translated into English.
The Italian driving licence will be sent back to the Italian Authorities.
When the applicant repatriates in Italy, the Irish driving licence can be exchanged. The applicant may claim back his/her driving licence to the competent Italian Motor Tax Office (Motorizzazione Civile).
