IMPORTANT
If the person requesting the passport has minor children, the "Consent" of the other parent is necessary, even in the case of a divorce, separation or cohabitation and must be notarized by a public notary if not signed in front of a consular officer. The applicant must also provide birth certificate of the children indicating the names of both parents.

If the person requesting the passport is a minor (less than 18 years of age) the "Consent" of both parents, even if divorced or separated, is necessary.

Minors can also apply for an individual passport.  

If the applicant is not a resident of this Consular jurisdiction, the granting or renewal of a passport is subject to the approval of:

  1. The Questura (Police Office) in Italy, or
  2. The Italian Embassy or Consulate holding jurisdiction.

LOST AND STOLEN PASSPORTS
Italian citizens who lose or have their passports stolen must file a report with the Police District where the incident occurred. Italian citizens who are legal residents of the U.S. may apply for a duplicate. Citizens residing in Italy may apply for a travel document valid only for re-entry into Italy.

In all cases, you must come personally to the Consular Office with the following documents:

  • Two passport photographs (2x2 inches in size, identical, full face, front view)
