Transferring residence abroad

Italian and non-Italian citizens

Italian citizens who wish to transfer their residence abroad for a period of over twelve months may inform the Consulate of their relocation directly, or they can make the declaration before they leave the country at the Italian Town Hall where they reside using the specially provided form (see Attachment 2).
In such a case, citizens are still required to go to the relevant Consulate within ninety days of arriving abroad so as to declare their expatriation.
The Consulate will send the ministerial form for requesting enrolment in AIRE (the register of Italians residing abroad) to the applicant's Town Hall of origin.
In such a case, the applicant's removal from the resident population register (APR) and enrolment in AIRE take effect from the date on which he/she declared his/her expatriation to the Town Hall, and they will be carried out within two days of receiving the consular form.

If the Town Hall does not receive the request for enrolment in AIRE from the Consulate within a year, the procedure for removing the applicant will begin due to unknown whereabouts.
If, however, the request for enrolment in AIRE is presented directly to the Consulate, as permitted by the regulations in force, the applicant will automatically be removed from the resident population register. The Town Hall will remove the applicant from the APR and enrol him/her in AIRE within two days of receiving the consular form (Cons01), effective from the date on which the form is received.

Applicants who are not Italian citizens need only present or send the form (see Attachment 2) to be removed from the register at their municipality of residence due to emigration abroad.
