Passports

 

Passports

The Embassy of Italy in Dublin is responsible for issuing passports to Italian citizens residing in Ireland and regularly registered with the A.I.R.E. [Click here]

Residents not yet registered can apply for a passport ONLY after uploading their AIRE registration request online (including complete and adequate documentation) through the FAST.IT portal [click here]

In order to avoid delays in issuing the passport, the applicant should have an updated marital status. It is therefore advisable to ensure that the documents relating to civil status events that did not occur in Italy (marriage, divorce, birth, etc.) have been previously presented to the consular office or to the competent Italian municipality.

SUBMISSION OF THE PASSPORT APPLICATION

The Passport Office is open only by appointment to be booked on the portal PRENOT@MI

Due to the high number of requests, interested parties are invited to submit the application well in advance. It is possible to apply for a new passport starting six months before the expiry of your own.

NOTICE: Exclusively in cases of proven and documented urgency, the passport can be issued on sight and in the absence of a reservation on the dedicated portal.

The interested party can request an emergency appointment at the email address dublino.passaporti@esteri.it, providing the necessary documentation proving the urgency in advance.

PASSPORT COSTS:

The single passport fee is € 116.00.
The amount of the consular fee must be in cash only.

To send the passport home, the applicant must bring at the appointment  a pre-paid envelope suitable for shipment. For this purpose, a padded A5 envelope is sufficient for sending the single passport (A4 in case of several passports). The applicant will be able to arrange the tracking of the shipment.

PASSPORT FOR MINORS OF AGE

In order to be able to issue a passport to a minor, it is an essential condition that the relative birth certificate has been registered in Italy, or that a request for transcription of the birth certificate has been submitted to the consular office.

DOCUMENTATION TO BE SUBMITTED

  • Two recent passport photos in color - white background - ICAO 9303 / ISO 19794-5 standard - 45mm x 35mm.

If one of the parents is not an EU citizen, the signature must be authenticated at this consular office or at another consular district of residence / Italian Police Headquarters competent for the territory in case of residence in Italy.

Provision of the Tutelary Judge

If a parent refuses to sign the consent form, the applicant can start the authorization procedure by the Tutelary Judge who can exceptionally authorize the issuance of a passport or identity card. This procedure must be requested through a written request from the interested party [click here] indicating the reasons for the lack of consent and the reasons why the refusal is considered pretext or unjustified. The application must contain detailed information about the obligations imposed on parental authority and custody of the minor; both social and psychological aspects will be taken into consideration for the evaluation of the request, with special emphasis on education and health coverage for the child. The request must also indicate the last address and telephone number (s) of the non-consenting parent, in order to allow direct contact and the place of residence of the child.
The Tutelary Judge made any further investigations, if he verifies that the reasons for the dissent of the other parent are actually unjustified, with a specific motivated provision, can authorize the issue of the identity document.

This procedure is of an exceptional nature and of voluntary jurisdiction, therefore it can be used only in the event of absolute impossibility to obtain the consent required by law.

TRAVEL UNDER 14 YEARS - ACCOMPANYING DECLARATION

Minors under the age of 14 can travel with their passport only accompanied by at least one parent or guardian. If both parents are unable to travel with the minor, he or she can be accompanied by another adult, requesting an accompanying declaration.
The accompanying declaration is applicable only to Italian minors and only when they travel outside the national borders (or, in the case of residence abroad, outside the borders of the country of residence) with a person other than the person exercising parental responsibility or guardianship. Parental responsibility (mother or father) or guardianship is therefore not necessary if you are traveling with merchants.

The accompanying declaration must be requested by the parents of the minor even when he / she travels entrusted to a transport company (eg airline or shipping company).

Before purchasing the ticket of the transport company, it is however necessary to verify that the same accepts that the child under 14 travels in their care.

A photocopy of the document of the parents (or guardian), the accompanying person and the minor must be attached to the accompanying declaration.

The validity of the declaration is limited to a trip (to be understood as a one-way and / or return) outside the country of residence of the minor under 14 with a specific destination.
The maximum term of validity of the declaration - within which the date of departure and the date of return must be included - is 6 months, without prejudice to the possibility for the competent office to grant a longer period in the event of a justified request (eg. entrusting the minor to a care or training institution).

However, the validity of the declaration cannot go beyond the expiry date of the minor's passport.

Minors who are already 14 years of age can travel unaccompanied in accordance with the provisions of current legislation on passports and equivalent identity / travel documents (Law no. 1185/1967).

NOTICE: The signature of the parent or guardian who is a citizen of a non-EU country must be authenticated at the Passport Office of this Embassy or by a public official.

The Office responsible for issuing the passport may in any case request, on its own assessment, in the interest of the minor, the presence of the interested parties.

Documentation to be submitted:


1. Accompanying declaration [click here].

2. Copy of the identity documents of the parents (or of those exercising parental responsibility or guardianship).

3. Copy of the accompanying person's identity document.

4. Copy of the travel document if present.

The request for the declaration must be submitted, attaching the above documentation exclusively by ordinary mail to the following address: Embassy of Italy in Dublin, Consular Chancery, 63-65 Northumberland Road, Dublin 4

IMPORTANT

It is recommended to submit the request well in advance of the departure date of the minor.

The accompanying declaration can be collected by a parent or guardian at the Passport Office of this Embassy during the opening hours to the public.
