Passaporti e Carte d’identità

ID CARD
At Italian representations in Japan, unlike those in EU countries, the issuance of ID card is not possible.

NEW PASSPORT ISSUANCE

The passport can be renewed from 6 months before the expiration date. As a first step you must send to osaka.passaporti@esteri.it a scan of pages 2, 3, 4 and 5, showing the photo and personal details, and the one showing the entity (police headquarters/embassy/consulate) issuing it. It is necessary to indicate the presence or absence of minor children. Once the necessary checks have been completed and the appointment scheduled, the following documentation must be presented to the Passport Office of this Consulate General:

-expired or soon-to-expire passport;
-the yen fee of 116 euros (current consular rate updated quarterly), payable in cash;
-(if the person has minor children): declaration of absence act of inhibition to the issuance of the document by the other parent (download here).

INDIVIDUAL PASSPORT FOR MINORS

Minors can no longer be registered on their parents’ passports but must have their own passport.

For the passport to be issued, the following documents must be presented to the Passport Office:

appropriate application (available at the Office)signed by both parents or one of them with an affidavit of consent (download here) from the other parent. If one parent is neither an Italian nor an EU citizen, since the Italian regulations regarding self-certification (Law 127/1997, Law 191/1998 and Presidential Decree 445/2000) do not apply, it is necessary to follow one of the following possibilities:
(a) The non-EU foreign parent goes to the Consular Office in person, with identification, to sign the affidavit in the presence of the consular official;
b) The non-EU foreign parent draws up the “act of assent” at a Japanese notary public; in the latter case, however, it will be necessary for the notary public’s signature to be legalized first at the local Legal Affairs Office, then with the apostille of Gaimusho, the Japanese Ministry of Foreign Affairs (contactable at the following number: 06-6941-4700).
The fee in yen of 116 euros (according to the consular rate in effect at the time of application), to be paid in cash;
Photocopies of both parents’ passports.

Passports are issued only by appointment to be arranged with the office.

For minors under the age of three, the passport validity is three years; for minors between the ages of three and eighteen, the passport validity is five years.
The minor up to 12 years old is not required to be fingerprinted at the Consulate General.

For minors under the age of fourteen, the use of a passport is subject to the condition that they travel in the company of one of their parents or legal guardians, or that the name of the person, entity or transportation company to whom the minors are entrusted is mentioned on the passport, or on a statement issued by the person who can give consent or authorization.

THEFT OR LOSS OF PASSPORT (RESIDENTS)

It is necessary for the citizen to present himself, upon appointment, at the Passport Office of the Consulate with the following documentation:

-report of passport theft or loss made at the local competent Police Authority;
-valid photo identification document;
-two identical and recent photographs (click here to know the type of photograph required);
-the yen fee of 116 euros (according to the consular rate in effect at the time of application), payable in cash;

THEFT OR LOSS OF PASSPORT (NON RESIDENTS)

If the Italian citizen finds himself in an emergency situation (e.g., a tourist in transit who has to leave promptly and loses or is robbed of his passport) and there is no time to apply to the Questura or Consulate that issued the lost document for a DELEGATION to issue a new passport, the Consulate General issues a document called “Documento di Viaggio Provisorio – ETD (Emergency Travel Document)” with validity only for the return trip to Italy, to the country of permanent residence abroad or, in exceptional cases, for a different destination. To obtain it, you must present yourself at the Consulate, by appointment, with the following documentation:

-report of passport theft or loss made at the local competent Police Authority;
-2 identical and recent photographs (click here to know the type of photograph required);
-airline ticket or e-ticket, with confirmed departure date.

The validity of the ETD, given its nature as a temporary emergency document, is very few days, and limited to the trip for which the airline ticket is presented.
