The Office of Civil registrar oversees the register of Italian citizens living abroad (AIRE).

According to Law 470 of 1988 all Italian citizens moving their residence abroad have to declare it to the competent consular office within 90 days upon arrival.

AIRE registration is required to obtain all documents and certificates issued by the Consular Office . Further, the registration on the consulate data- base system significantly reduces the time to processing documents.

Italian citizens have to be at least recorded in the registry of one of the Italian municipalities. Registration allow them to exercise their rights and duties considering their specific condition. Italian citizens must communicate any changes on their civil/personal data to the competent municipality (e.g. civil status, citizenship, home address, family composition).

Italian citizens can live either in Italy or abroad. In the first case (residence in Italy), they will be registered in the Registry of the resident population (APR) of the belonging municipality on which they will refer to for the processing of any civil documentation issues. In the second case (residence abroad), they will appear on the registry of Italian citizens living abroad (AIRE) corresponding to their municipality of origin or of the last residence before expatriation, respectively. Such/thereof citizens can refer to the Italian consular office at the foreign place of residence for the processing of any civil documentation. The consular Office will operate as intermediate between thereof citizens and their corresponding Italian municipality.
