ELECTRONIC PASSPORT- PHASE II

ELECTRONIC PASSPORT- PHASE II

The second phase of the electronic passport project is being implemented.
In this phase, every passport-issuing office (both in Italy and abroad) is using a new type of biometric passport which includes, in addition to the picture, the holder’s fingerprints. These electronic passports will be valid for ten years.   As these new procedures come into effect, fellow citizens requesting a passport have to come necessarily in person to this Consulate General to provide their fingerprints. This service cannot be rendered by Honorary Vice Consulates or Consular Correspondents.
