Research of compatriots abroad

Information concerning Italian citizens abroad may be provided in compliance with current legislation on the protection of personal data (Legislative Decree 196 of 2003), which in most cases requires the consent of the person sought.

Requests should be sent directly by e-mail to the Consular Office ( ) by means of a signed and reasoned request (on plain paper), enclosing a copy of an identity document.

As regards requests to know the address of residence abroad of compatriots (also for notification purposes), please note that they should be addressed to the relevant Italian municipalities of AIRE registration (municipality of last residence in Italy or municipality of origin).
