How can we be of service?

At the San Diego office, we can capture fingerprints, signature, and photo, which are then digitally sent to the LA consulate. Your application form, payment, and other documents can then be sent BY YOU directly to the LA consulate by postal service.

What to bring to the appointment:

Photo. Passport-size photo to be digitized, as we do not print photos at the local office.
Expired/previous passport (if applicable)
AIRE. Evidence of AIRE registration. Current address must match what is in the database.
Consent Form. If you have minor children, regardless of whether the passport is for you or your child/children, you will need to have a consent form completed by the other parent. If other parent is not a citizen of Italy/EU, the identity and signature must be verified by our office (or notary).
