Passport Renewal
dear Sir/Madam, my passport expired on 7/10/2017 and l started calling the Italian embassy in London two months before now to no avail. I finally called the ltalian consulate office in Nottingham and a Lady called Valerie told me that such service is no longer provided in Nottingham and that l need to complete a form (A.I.R.E) online. I have searched the website for days looking for this form, no link provided therefore making it impossible to complete. Please tell me how to go about this as l am getting so frustrated over the whole thing. Renewing a passport shouldn't be this hard. Holiday plans are on hold, l have family members to visit in ltaly this Christmas and a job interview of which a valid passport is required. Please help
Yours Sincerely
N.P Roberts

Italian passport
This system is a complete disgrace and makes me ashamed of being Italian. I just don't know what to do next to obtain a renewal passport as the phone lines arent answered and on the three times I did speak to the consulate in Liverpool the lady there was the most rude, arrogant and unhelpful person I have ever come across. How can this be allowed?

Passport renewal
To whom it concerne .
I am Italian citizen (A.I.R.E) , my passport is expired , I've subscribed online to the ITALIAN CONSOLATE IN LONDON , the application to be able to book an appointment .
All this , after several hone calls , to a number that I've descovered is not even managed by the ITALIAN CONSOLATE , ( and the 75p per minute I've spent , more then five calls, when I'm waiting to speak to an operator the line dropped all the time . The CONSOLE , IN A DIFFERENT BLOG , ALSO STATE THAT ; ( 75p X minute of that number are not going to the consolate , but to the company THAT HOLD THAT NUMBER OPEN ) , although the CONSOLE HAS STATED THAT THE NUMBER IS NO MORE ACTIVE ! So the online application was declared successful from the web site (LA FARNESINA) hold all the main DIRECTION TO MAKE THIS WORK , ISNT IT ? I've left e-mail , phone number and addres to a company that I don't know if they are still in business with LA FARNESINA .
SO , I've waited and checked my e-mail for answers about my appointment . NO ANSWER AFTER 2 months .

I urgently need to go to ITALY FOR FAMILY REASONS , AND I SEE MY SELF IGNORED COMPLETLY , for no reasons , and I don't think , this should be the kind of service provided abroad, from ITALIAN TO ITALIAN . CONTACTING THE EMBASSY , IS RIGHT TO SAY , THAT IS LIKE WINNING A LOTTERY ( and there is a number open 1 hour only on Thursday night around 19:00h , called EMERGENCY )? So , although this complaint will not be delivered to the right authority, is almost useless , and it will leave me once again without updated passport , and I wonder why 2017 , all this is happening , when in previous years , everyone could go at the NEAREST CONSOLATE , sit in a waiting room , get received and looked after , when was the right turn , and leave with positive results .END OF DAY , ALL ITALIAN CYTIZENS ABROAD , go to embassy , just to be helped and be straight with the law too , so I really CAN'T THINK AT ALL , OF HAVING THIS PROCEDURE COMPLICATED BY THECNOLOGY, OR ANSWER MACHINE , THAT ONLY TAKE MY PHONE CREDIT AWAY , WITH NO FINAL POSITIVE CONCLUSION BY THE ITALIAN CONSOLATE TO ME ( and many other like me ) . This missed service , have , and is creating me so many sleepless night , and many arguments,and ripeted discussion with my family , that need me there urgently , it cost me money too , more the £300 in empty phone calls . Final , if I live in LANCS , IS MANCHESTER ,available to renew the passport , or it'll cost me a train ticket to London , after ,all useless phone calls to a CLOSED PHONE NUMBER RUN BY 3th party ? . Where is the rispect for conationals, while we Italy is constantly going all the way to over the SEA BOARDERS WITH NORTH AFRICA , FISHING CLANDESTINES , THAT MOST OF THEM ARE JUST CREATING PANIC AND CRIME AROUND THE NATION , AND JUST DESTROY ALL THERE IS IN FRINT OF THEM ?
Well , I think I didn't said something wrong , and I've been very polite

Italian Passport renewal of 5 year old born in Italy
It is very difficult to navigate and find out correct process and forms to renew the above passport. I am helping as a family friend. Both parents are of Sri Lankan origin and barely literate. Father has Italian passport, but mother has Sri Lankan passport. Can this be done by post, as they live in Coventry and you have closed the Birmingham consular offices, not notified in your websites and we wasted a jopurney there?? Please text, phone or email me re this matter > URGENT! Tel:07989331682, Email - sittams@hotmail.com
