Passports

***IMPORTANT NOTICE***

Following the implemented guidelines by the Irish government to prevent the spread of the Covid19 epidemic and following the instructions given by the Italian authorities, the offices of the Consular Chancellery are closed to the public at this stage.
The passport office, which is also closed to the public, is no exception.
The Consular Chancellery continues, however, to provide services in the event of an emergency.
Assistance to Italians in difficulty is continuing, the notary service continues to operate, the visa office continues to operate in a limited way.
For this reason, passport applications which arrive at the Embassy or which arrived during the closing period of the Office are not taken into consideration.
Instead, only requests for identity documents or those for travel documents are dealt with in cases of actual emergency.
The activities in this sector will be gradually reactivated compatibly with the health situation.
At the reopening of the Offices, which will therefore take place gradually, we will take care of publishing on this site the instructions with which it will be possible to obtain identity documents and travel documents for those who need them.
All those, however, who are in an emergency situation, are invited to present it with an email to consolare.ambdublino@esteri.it explaining the problem in a concise but clear and documented way.

For general information on the Italian passports please check the relevant page on the Italian Foreign Affairs Ministry website .

In general, applicants must submit their request to obtain a passport to the competent Consular Jurisdiction in which they reside.
Italian citizens may submit an application to request a passport to any office competent for the issue of passports (in Italy or abroad). In this case, the ‘Questura’ or Consulate of the place of residence will have to appoint the Embassy to issue the passport. In this case, it will take more time to carry out the procedure.

Italian citizens resident in Ireland who are not yet registered in the A.I.R.E. (Anagrafe Italiani Residenti all’Estero/Register of Italians Living Abroad) and who submit their application for a passport, must also submit the application for registration in the A.I.R.E. The A.I.R.E. application is available on line through Fast it.

Italian citizens registered in the A.I.R.E., who have changed their address, must also submit the application for the change of address in the A.I.R.E.

The procedure to apply for a new Italian passport is as follows.

PASSPORTS FOR CHILDREN UNDER THE AGE OF 18

As of 26th June 2012, all Italian minors have to travel with their own travel document. Therefore, minors are now obliged to have their own passport even if they were added to their parent passports before 25th November 2009. They may also request an identity card valid for travel abroad or another equivalent document, if the countries they travel to accept them.

The validity of minors’ passports varies according to their age:

- 3 years for children from 0 to 3 years of age;
- 5 years for children from 3 to 18 years of age.

In order to issue a passport to infants, it is necessary that the Birth Certificate be already registered in the relevant Municipality in Italy.

DICHIARAZIONE DI ACCOMPAGNAMENTO

Italian minors who are under 14 years of age must travel with one of their parents or a person otherwise authorised to accompany them. Otherwise, it is possible to insert the name of the person/institution/transportation company who is responsible for the minor either on the passport or in a statement. The latter must be issued by any person who can give consent to obtain the passport and it must be validated by the ‘Questura’ or Consular Authority. For information on how to apply for the statement at this Embassy visit the relevant page on our website.

 

EMERGENCY TRAVEL DOCUMENT

If an Italian citizen finds himself/herself in an emergency situation (e.g. a tourist must depart from Ireland and he/she has lost his/her passport or it was stolen) and there is no time to start the procedure for the issuing of a new passport, the Consular Office will issue a provisional travel document (ETD European Travel Document). The latter is valid only to return to Italy, to travel to the foreign country of residence or, as an exception, to travel to another destination.
