Italy - Register a Marriage

From Wikiprocedure
Jump to: navigation, search


To apply for your banns to be posted, you must go in person to the consulate with a valid identity document (art. 51, para. 1, of DPR 396/2000 - richiesta di pubblicazione or posting request).

If you are unable to go in person, you can delegate a third party to do so. In this case, you must use a special proxy written on plain paper (i.e. not requiring a tax stamp). This must be accompanied by your identity documents, which must, of course, be valid.

Parties married outside of Italy who have not had their marriage certificate recorded in Italy by the Italian Consulate with territorial jurisdiction over their place of marriage, must present their certificate to the competent consular authority, requesting its registration in Italy, and subsequently obtain the estratto per riassunto dellatto di matrimonio from the Comune, before presenting their application (please be aware that this may take a varying number of months, depending on the Consulate and on the Comune).

Check all documents word by word to make sure that there are no discrepancies or changes in the names, last names, dates and places of birth. All documents issued outside Italy must bear the name or family name of the interested parties exactly as issued on the original Italian birth certificate; eg. (Brambilla and not Brimbilla)
