Passport services

Getting your Australian passport sorted is super important, especially with the current high demand. So, it’s a good idea to get cracking on your application well before your travel plans kick in. The Aussie Passport Office suggests giving yourself a generous 10-week window to nab that fresh passport. Heads up: they can’t process incomplete applications, so make sure everything’s tickety-boo before you send it off.

Now, depending on what you’re up to, here’s the lowdown on how to apply:

If you’re eligible for a passport renewal, you can pop your application in the mail.

But if it’s not a renewal, you gotta show up in person and book an appointment first. Oh, and they only take electronic payments, so leave your cash at home. Just a heads-up: applying from overseas means you’ll cough up some extra cash, except for emergency passport gigs.

Need to hit the road pronto? If it’s urgent, you can go for an Emergency Passport. Just shoot an email to or for all the deets.


Now, about those forms:

If you’re under 18 or need to renew your passport and your current one is a bit ancient, lost, or needs a name change, you’ll wanna fill out PC8. But if your previous passport was issued when you were 16 or older, issued after Jan 1, 2006, and had at least two years’ validity, go for PC7. Check out for more info.


Lost your passport?

Bummer. To book an interview, drop an email:

If you’re dealing with the Aussie Embassy in Rome, it’s

If you’re in cahoots with the Consulate-General in Milan, shoot an email to

Now, let’s talk about sending stuff: For PC7 adult renewals, make sure you’re over 18, meet all the criteria, and send in your application by tracked delivery. Don’t forget your supporting docs and payment deets.


Children Passports

Got little ones needing a passport refresh? If they’re under 16 and have had an Aussie passport before, you’re in luck. Fill out PC8 and follow the same mailing drill. But if they’re first-timers or 16-17 years old, it’s in-person appointments only.

When everything’s sorted, mail your application to:

The Australian Embassy in Rome if you’re applying from Abruzzo, Basilicata, Calabria, Campania, Lazio, Marche, Molise, Puglia, Tuscany, Umbria, Sardinia, Sicily, Albania, Libya, or San Marino:

Australian Embassy, Passport Office
Via Antonio Bosio 5, 00161 Rome, Italy

Or if you’re in Emilia-Romagna, Friuli-Venezia Giulia, Liguria, Lombardy, Piedmont, Trentino-Alto Adige, Valle d’Aosta, or Veneto, hit up the Australian Consulate-General in Milan:

Australian Consulate-General, Passport Office
Via Borgogna 2, 20122 Milano

Remember, just send the form, pics, copies of IDs and proof of address, and payment deets. Keep your email address clear and check it often. And don’t stress, we’ll let you know if we need anything else.

Notarial Services

Australian Embassy in Rome: or ring them up at (+39) 06 852721
Australian Consulate-General in Milan: or dial (+39) 02 7767 4200

But before you get in touch, make sure your docs are all set and you know exactly what notarial service you need. If you’re not sure about the legal ins and outs, it’s wise to get some independent legal advice.

Keep in mind, though, neither the Aussie Embassy in Rome nor the Consulate-General in Milan can guarantee that the notarized document will do the trick legally or that it’s spot-on accurate. And hey, they only take electronic payments, so leave your cash at home. Once you pay up, there’s no going back, so make sure you’re sure.

Now, when it comes to actually getting your stuff notarized, it’s by appointment only, and you gotta show up in person. Before you book your slot, swing by smartraveller to suss out what kinds of notarial services they offer and what you need to bring along. Oh, and don’t forget your passport or ID card, plus all your original docs.

Getting Married in Italy as an Australian

Alright, let’s break down the deal with tying the knot in Italy as an Aussie:

First off, you can’t have an Australian government rep conduct your wedding or do it at an Aussie Embassy or Consulate. But no worries, you just need two key documents:


Atto Notorio:

You gotta snag this from the Italian Embassy or Consulate in your Aussie state before jetting off. Can’t get it there? No sweat, you can grab one from an Italian Civil Court in Italy or the civil registrar at your wedding city. Here’s the lowdown on getting it from the Civil Court in Rome:

– Tribunale Civile di Roma
Viale Giulio Cesare 54/B, 1st floor, Room 86
Ph: +39 063577296

– Make sure to call ahead for an appointment. And when you head over, bring along two adult witnesses. If anyone doesn’t speak Italian, you’ll need an interpreter too.

– Cash isn’t king here; you’ll need to grab some revenue stamps before showing up. The cost depends on how urgently you need the certificate.


Nulla Osta:

Alongside the Atto Notorio, you’ll need to pop by the Australian Embassy in Rome or the Consulate-General in Milan to make a Sworn Declaration (Nulla Osta). Don’t forget to bring your Aussie passport for this.

– The Nulla Osta confirms you’re good to go for marriage, whether you’re single, divorced, or widowed. You’ll need to sign it in front of an Aussie Consular officer.

– Don’t forget, if you’ve been hitched before, you’ll need to show proof of the end of your previous marriage, like a divorce or death certificate.

– Oh, and it’ll cost you about A$80.00 per Aussie citizen, and they only accept card payments at the Aussie Embassy in Rome.

After all that, your Nulla Osta will need a stamp of approval from the Uffico Legalizzazioni of the Prefettura. Then, you’re ready to hit the Marriage Office in the city where you’re getting hitched. For a civil ceremony, just follow the steps, and don’t forget to ask for an Apostille to make it legal back in Aus.

Remember, things might change, so double-check everything with the Marriage Office before you take the plunge. And if you need more deets on the Atto Notorio, hit up the Italian Embassy or Consulate in your state.

But hey, just a heads up, this info is for your convenience, but the Australian Government and the Embassy can’t be held responsible for any hiccups. Got questions? Give the Consular Section at the Australian Embassy in Rome a buzz. Lastly also see the Australian Fiancee Visa article on here as well as the Australian Embassy in Albania which is now closed.
