Marital status

The Civil Status records the essential events related to the citizen: birth, marriage, death, divorce, citizenship.

All Italian citizens have the obligation to notify the Public Administration in a timely manner any changes related to their marital status and the composition of their family unit.

To this end, it is necessary to present the relevant documents formally perfected (and translated into Italian) at the Consular Office of residence (only by appointment online through the portal “Prenot@mi” at the Consulate responsible for the place where the event occurred, or directly at the Italian Municipality of origin).

In addition, the Consulate’s Registry Office assists citizens resident in the constituency and registered with the AIRE with regard to:

  • transmission of divorce rulings;
  • transmission of adoption decisions;
  • marriage publications;
  • change of name or surname

Important: In the event that the applicant has changed his address of residence IT IS NECESSARY TO UPDATE it through the Fast It platform, also for the purpose of transcribing civil status documents. If the address does not correspond to the one in the service request form, the transcription of the document will not be made.

Certificates of residence and family status are issued exclusively by the municipality of registration Aire. The Embassy can issue certificates of Italian citizenship, of existence in life and registration in the consular register (see “certificate of citizenship“)

Translations made by an “official” translator must be declared in conformity with the original by the same translator, who will add at the bottom of the translation his own qualification and the words that, under his responsibility, declares the translation perfectly in accordance with the original text and the signature in the document must not be in any way digital.

This list is in no way exhaustive and is provided for information purposes; the Embassy does not assume any responsibility related to the work of these professionals nor for the fees charged by them.

Consular Services are offered directly to interested parties and not to intermediaries.
The Embassy of Italy has not authorized any agency or person to offer Consular Services.
