The Consulate is entitled to issue an ID card only to Italian nationals legally residing in the WA consular district and registered in AIRE (Anagrafe degli Italiani Residenti all’Estero).

Italian Electronic ID Cards are not issued at the counter. Instead, they are posted to the applicant’s residence address directly from Italy, after successfully concluding the procedure at the Consulate.
