PASSPORT UPDATES – 25/06/2014

All Italian nationals are kindly requested to take note of the following:
Article 5-bis of Law Decree No. 66 dated 24th April 2014, has introduced some changes in passport consular fees.
Article 5-bis, paragraph 1 of the above mentioned Law has introduced a Consular Fee of Euro 73.50 for issuance of passport
(including passports of minors), while the cost of passport booklets remains Euro 42.50.
The new Consular Fee is paid at the time of issuance of a passport. Consequently,  both the former issuance fee and the annual
