The Italian passport is an internationally recognized travel document. It is not renewable but it can be re-issued. In order to have it re-issued please book an appointment via our online booking system.
The re-issuing can be requested when a Passport is expired (or just before it expires), in case of lost/stolen Passports and in other specific circumstances (damaged Passports; need of a Passport with a longer residual validity).
In case of lost/stolen Passports, the Consulate will inform the police authorities in Italy. We strongly invite you to report the incident to the WA police too.
On the day of your appointment please bring: your old Italian Passport (if you have one); valid ID (Australian Passport, driver’s license, ID card); 2 recent and identical passport photos (Australian Post standard only, 6 months validity).
If you have children under the age of 18, you also need to present the Consent Form signed by the other parent of your child/children (if not attending the appointment at the Consulate) together with a copy of the other parent ID. If the other parent is not an Italian citizen or a EU citizen, his/her signature on the Consent Form must be witnessed by a Justice of the Peace.
Please note that Consent Form is necessary both for the issuing of your own Italian Passport as well as for the issuing of the Italian Passport for any of your children under the age of 18.
Italian Passports are usually issued the same day of the appointment to Italian citizens registered on our AIRE. If you are not registered on our AIRE the process may take up to 30 days because of necessary authorizations required by the relevant Authorities in Italy.
Please check the current consular fee for Passport issuing on the Price List on our Homepage (payable in cash only on the day of the appointment).
