1. General Information
At the Consulate General of Italy in Toronto, unless there are impediments, passports are issued on the same day of the appointment, shortly after acquiring biometric data of the applicant.
This “express” service is possible only if the applicant is registered with AIRE with an updated residence address in this consular jurisdiction (Ontario, Manitoba and the North West Territories, with some exceptions indicated below).
In order to apply for a passport appointment with this Consulate you must be:
- an Italian citizen

The consular jurisdiction of this Consulate consists of: Manitoba, the North West Territories and Ontario, with some exceptions. For the city of Ottawa and the counties of Carleton, Dundas, Glengarry, Grenville, Prescott, Russel and Stormont it is necessary to contact the Embassy of Italy in Ottawa.
If you are a resident of another consular jurisdiction, or if you reside in Italy, this Consulate must contact the relevant Consular Office or Police Headquarters in Italy and receive authorization to issue your document, with consequent longer waiting times.
2. How to book an appointment
The appointment for the issuance of a new passport must be booked through the online booking system Prenot@Mi.
To request an appointment, applicants must register on the Prenot@mi portal.

PLEASE NOTE: The minor/infant child born to a parent (one or both) currently in possession of Italian citizenship is an Italian citizen.
