Vital records

All Italian citizens (including dual citizens) are legally obliged to notify the relevant Consulate of Italy of any change to the details regarding each of their household members, including civil status, home address, phone number and e-mail address. Registration is free of charge.

All applications for registration of BDM certificates are free of charge and may also be sent by post, but only after sending an advance copy of the entire documentation through our online form, also available from HERE. After receiving confirmation that the documents intended for registration are correct and complete, applicants may freely choose between:

  1. sending the entire documentation by post (ordinary or registered) to: P.O. Box 1894, West Perth WA 6872, or
  2. submitting the entire documentation at the counter, as instructed by e-mail (Tuesdays and Thursdays only).

More information on how to obtain the registration in Italy of a birth, marriage, divorce or death certificate is available in the corresponding section of this page.
