Issuance of Passport for Italian citizens not registered AIRE in Boston

 

Issuance of Passport for Italian citizens not registered AIRE in Boston

Please note, according to the Law n.21 November 1967 – Regulations on passports Art.7, the issuance of a passport for Italian Citizens not registered in the Boston’s Consular Registry (AIRE), is possible only for particular cases and when the reasons are specifically justified (a field “additional notes” is available in the Book Now system). Please also note that this Consulate General will automatically proceed with the AIRE registration when required by law.

The law n. 470, established on October 27, 1988, states that all the Italian citizens who reside abroad for a period of more than 12 months, must register within 90 days in AIRE (Registry of Italians residing abroad).The registration is the prerequisite for many consular services, in particular passport issuance, the right to vote and access to legal services offered by the Consulate. 

Italian citizens of legal age (18 years old)
 are able to visit this Consulate General for the issuance of a Passport only after making an online appointment (click here).

On the day of the appointment please bring the following:

  1. 2 Passport pictures in European Format (35mm by 40mm or 1.5” x 1.5”) (pictures guideline)
  2. Money Order or Cashier Check for the total amount due (from October 1st until December 31st 2017 the amount due is $136.40 made to:"Consulate General of Italy Boston"). 
  3. Old/Expiring Passport. (if old passport has expired a valid photo ID will be also necessary).


If the applicant has children who are minors , in addition to the above stated requirements, both parents must be physically present or, alternatively, must provide a signed letter of consent from the other parent (attaching a copy of a valid document if he/she is an Italian/EU citizen or attaching a notarized signature by a Notary Public if he/she is a foreign citizen).

If the applicant is a minor , in addition to the requirements listed in points a, b and c, both parents and child/children must be physically present or, alternatively, the minor applicant/s must be accompanied by one parent and must provide a signed letter of consent from the other parent (attaching a copy of a valid document if he/she is an Italian/EU citizen or attaching a notarized signature by a Notary Public if he/she is a foreign citizen). If this is the applicants first Italian passport he/she must present another form of valid ID.

Furthermore, as of June 26th, 2012, following a new EU law, it is necessary for minors to have their own passport for travel purposes. Parents who still have minor children registered on their passport are therefore asked to request the renewal of their own passports to conform to the above mentioned EU legislation. Minors under the age of 12 are not required to have their fingerprints taken for their passport.

Attention: it is recommended to closely follow the instructions on the online appointment system and provide the passport number, issuance date of the passport, the issuing authority (all found on the first three pages of the Italian passport) and also a valid phone number where you will be contacted as soon as the necessary checks have been made for the release of a new passport.
