AIRE – Register of Italians resident abroad

What is the Registry/AIRE and who must register

AIRE is the Anagrafe/Registry of the Italians Residing Abroad.

Law 470 of 1988 states that all Italian citizens who transfer their residence abroad for more than 12 months must submit, within 90 days of the arrival, an AIRE registration request to the competent Italian Consulate.

Italian citizens residing abroad either as a result of being born there or having obtained Italian citizenship for any reason are also required to register with AIRE.

Italian citizens who emigrated before this law caming into effect, are also required to register with AIRE.

The following citizens do NOT need to register with AIRE:

• citizens residing abroad for less than 12 months;
• seasonal workers residing abroad;
• employees of the Italian government stationed abroad
• members of the Italian Armed Services stationed at NATO posts abroad.

Only Italian citizens residing in one of the 11 States belonging to our consular jurisdiction may register with AIRE through this Consulate. The 11 States are: Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin e Wyoming.

Italian citizens who reside in other Consular jurisdictions must register with AIRE through the right Italian Consulate.


How to register

Registration with the AIRE under the jurisdiction of this Consulate is requested through the procedure described in the Registration section.

The registration with AIRE, made directly with the Consular Office, takes effect from the date of receipt of the complete request (Law Decree no. 22 of 25 March 2019).

In the event that the transfer abroad has already been declared to the Municipality, it is necessary to submit to the Consular Office within 90 days of arrival in the foreign country, the “declaration of abandonment of residence” issued by the competent Municipality and bearing the date of registration to AIRE.

Citizens residing abroad already registered in AIRE who change their residence must make a declaration within 90 days to the territorially competent Consulate. For more details vistit the Change/update address and Repatriation section.


Italian citizens are obliged to register with AIRE and consular services are reserved for them, such as citizenship documents, military service, passport issuance, authentication of signatures etc.
