Registry of Italians Residing Abroad (A.I.R.E.)

For general information please visit the relevant section of the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Registering. Article. 8 of Law no. 470/88 (Italian only) states that regardless of their Country of birth all Italian citizens who intend to reside in Israel for a period exceeding 12 months, are required to register with the Consular Chancery of the Embassy of Italy in Tel Aviv in the A.I.R.E. (Register of Italians Residing Abroad), within 90 days from the date of arrival.

This provision also applies to Italian citizens who emigrated before 1988 (year of enactment of Law no. 470/88). A.I.R.E. registration is a necessary requirement for obtaining most services such as issuance of documents and certificates issued by the consular office (including passports).

Failure to update the registration in A.I.R.E., in particular in case of change of address, makes it impossible to contact the Italian citizen thus preventing them, among other things, to participate in the electoral process.
Italian citizens are thus required to promptly update their A.I.R.E. registration data, including the transfer of residence or domicile, household composition, marital status changes also in view of the transcription in Italy of acts registered abroad (marriage, birth, divorce, death, etc..), definitive return to Italy, loss of Italian citizenship.
Please note that an updated A. I.R.E. registration simplifies and accelerate most consular services.
