A Passport is a travel and ID document that can only be issued to those who are already Italian citizens. In Italy, it is issued by the Police Headquarters (Questura). Abroad, it is issued by the Consular Authority where the citizen normally resides.

The ordinary passport for adults is valid for ten years (10). The passport for minors is valid for three years for minors under 3 and five years for minors under 18. Minors up to 12 years of age are exempt from signing and the requirement for taking fingerprints.

Please note:

  • All passports already issued in the past remain valid until their expiry.
  • Passports cannot be renewed. In case of expired, running out of pages, theft or loss, a new passport is issued with a duration of 10 years.
  • New passports cannot be issued if the current one has a residual validity of more than six (6) months, with the exception of
    cases of loss and theft.
  • Please note new passports are issued by appointment only.
