The Italian Consulates protect Italian nationals in various circumstances, for example: violations of basic rights, arrest or detention, emergencies in crisis situations, locating family members, issue of travel documents in case of lost or stolen passport, repatriation of remains.

Consular services are provided in keeping with the principles of equality, fairness, efficiency and transparency. The exercise of certain rights and access to some services are available only to Italians who are registered with the Italian Citizens Residing Abroad (AIRE) program as required by Law no. 470 of 1988.
