Emergency Travel Document - ETD

 

Emergency Travel Document - ETD

If you find yourself in an emergency situation abroad (for example, you need to leave and have lost your passport or had it stolen) and there is no time to apply for a new travel document, the Consulate can issue an Emergency Travel Document (ETD), which is valid only for your return to Italy (or to the country in which you legally reside). Only in exceptional cases can it be used for a different destination.

We remind you that in the Schengen area, some airlines – in the framework of their own commercial policies - may allow the boarding following the submission of a report of theft or loss made to the local police authorities.

To have an ETD issued, you must bring the following documents to the locally authorised Consulate:
1) Report of the loss or theft of your passport or other travel document to the Consulate as per articles no. 46, 47 and 76 of Presidential Decree 445/2000;
2) 2 identical, front-face, colour 35 x 40 mm photographs;
3) Ticket;
4) Receipt for payment of the fee for the document (currently €1.55) and eventual mailing costs if the person concerned is not able to pick it up in person.

Please keep in mind that this form of assistance may be unavailable on Saturdays, Sundays and holidays if the Consulate is closed. Except in cases of proven emergency, you will have to apply the next available working day.

Honorary Consulates are not authorised to issue ETDs, and are limited to forwarding applications to the authorised Consulate and acting as the agent of their final delivery to the applicant, who is also liable for eventual mailing costs.

Please remember that you must also report the loss or theft of your passport to the local police in order to later cross the border.

Also be sure to keep photocopies of your most important documents (passport, identity card, credit card) in a place separate from where the originals are kept in order to facilitate assistance in case of loss or theft.


Citizens of European Union Member Countries can be issued an ETD pending formal authorisation by the diplomatic mission or Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the applicant’s home country and upon submission of the following documentation:

1) Report of the loss or theft of your passport or other travel document to the Consulate as per articles no. 46, 47 and 76 of Presidential Decree 445/2000;

2) Local police report of the loss or theft of the document;

3) 2 identical, front-face, 35 x 40 mm colour photographs;
4) Ticket;

5) Receipt for payment of the fee for the document (currently €1.55) and eventual mailing costs if the person concerned is not able to pick it up in person.
