Emergency Travel Document (ETD)


This Consulate will issue an ETD (Emergency Travel Document) to Italian citizens in case of emergency (i.e. a tourist scheduled for imminent departure who loses or has his/her passport stolen).
An ETD is valid only for the return trip to Italy or other country of residency (as indicated in A.I.R.E., the registry of Italians living abroad).
An ETD is not valid to travel to the United States.

In order to apply for an ETD, please call the switchboard on +1 416 977 1566 on working days and during Consulate service hours, while the emergency number +1 416 456 3355 is available from 4pm to 9 pm on working days or on weekends and holidays from 8am to 9pm.

To obtain an ETD, the applicant must attend in person with the following documentation:

  • Application form (applicants above 18minors)
  • Local police report of the loss or theft of the passport;
  • Return ticket to Italy or to other country of residence;
  • Two front-facing identical colored photos (35X45mm) on a white background (the head should take up 70% of the entire photo)
  • A valid piece of photo ID i.e. identity card, driver’s license, etc. or/and photocopy of the lost/stolen passport. Should none of these be available, it will be necessary for this Consulate to verify the applicant’s identity before issuing the ETD.

The issue of an ETD is subject to a consular fee (art. N13A – click Here to see Consular Fee, link will open in a new tab).
