Registry office

 

The Registry Office (anagrafe.consedimburgo@esteri.it) deals with the registration of British birth, death, marriage certificates, entries in the Civil Partnership Regstry and divorce decrees relating to Italian citizens.

The Registry Office forwards the above-mentioned certificates to the relevant Italian ‘’Comune’’ (Town Hall) to obtain referenced registration.

Furthermore the Registry Office assists all Italian citizens registered with Aire in the following matters: publications of Marriage Bans and applications for a change of name or last name.

For further information please refer to: DPR nr. 396/2000 and Dgls nr. 71/2001

All the certificates are given a registration by the appropriate "Comune" Aire according to the latest residence in Italy.

When a marriage took place in a specific ‘’Comune’’ of Italy, related divorce decree occurring abroad must be sent to that ‘’Comune’’ for registration.

CERTIFICATES: this Consulate General cannot issue birth, marriage, death, divorce certificates which are issued only by the Italian ‘’Comune’’ (click here for the template - see under section REQUEST OF CERTIFICATES).

We can only issue marital status, family and a comprehensive (civil status, residence and citizenship) certificate (please click here to download form) and certificate of no impediment for marriages abroad (please see Forms).
