How to register in AIRE

How to register in AIRE

Italian nationals who move permanently to Scotland and Northern Ireland from Italy will have to submit the AIRE registration form to this Office. Applicants do not need to come in person. The AIRE registration is free of charges.



It is now available Fast It, a new online service to request a registration in AIRE. You only need to create an account and follow the instructions. Click on the image at side of this page for more information.

NOTE: following the introduction of Fast It, it is no longer possible to send AIRE application forms by email. Alternatively, you can still register by post (NO email) sending the documents listed below:

  • Aire Registration Form (click HERE) carefully filled in
  • a copy of a valid ITALIAN identity document (passport or Identity Card), including the page bearing the photo and the signature and the page stating the authority issuing the document
  • a copy of confirmation of registration in the UK “Settlement Scheme” / or copy of other valid UK Residence Permit
  • a copy of the identity documents of all the family members under 18 and/or of other nationalities. For family members non EU citizens the documentation required is:
    • Copy of valid national passport (main details page + page with stamp of UK entry)
    • Copy of valid UK “Residence Permit”
  • proof of address

Please Note: your name and surname and current address in Scotland or Northern Ireland must appear in the letter heading. If you cannot provide any one of the above listed proofs of address it will not be possible to process the AIRE registration request.


Due to the high volume of inquiries received it will not be possible to check each individual request until it is being processed, you are therefore requested to check that you have completed the application form correctly and attached appropriate supporting documents.

It is essential to provide a correct email address, as we will request any missing documentation by email.

Once the application has been processed, the request of your registration AIRE addressed to relevant Italian Municipality shall be sent to you, in copy, via email. 

Please Note: all AIRE registration inquiries should only be addressed to the Comune (Municipality) in Italy and not to this Consulate General.




Please note that registration of a minor in the AIRE is carried out solely for the purpose of confirming the legal residence (or habitual domicile) of that minor, irrespective of any objections thereto arising from an order by Italian or local judicial authorities.

Both parents have the same duties and responsibilities in respect of their children and they must therefore both agree on their children’s place of normal residence.

AIRE applications submitted in the name of a minor living with only one of his/her parents MUST be signed by both parents and accompanied by a photocopy of each parent’s valid passport.

In the case of an AIRE application for a minor signed by only one of the parents, the application must be supported by:

  • Prescribed “Consent”, by means of “Mod1” (to be downloaded from the “Forms” section of our website), completed and signed by the other parent together with a photocopy of his/her valid passport (if the other parent is NOT an EU national, the signature shall have to be officially verified).
  • In the event the declarant is unable to obtain such consent due to the death of the other parent, removal of parental rights by judicial interdict or because the child has been recognised by only one of the parents, supporting documentation to that effect will be required

Should the declarant be unable to obtain the other parent’s consent due to the fact that he/she is not reachable or refuses to give such consent, the applicant shall be required to submit “Mod 2” (to be downloaded from the “Forms” section of our website) together with a photocopy of his/her valid passport. The form should indicate the last known address and contacts details of the other parent.
