Have you heard the exciting news? Italian citizens living in Hawaii no longer need to fly to San Francisco in order to renew passports or obtain new passports for their children. Instead, fingerprinting may be done here in Hawaii by the Honorary Consul. Please see below for more details, and click here for instructions.
ANNOUNCEMENT TO ITALIAN CITIZENS LIVING IN HAWAII
The Honorary Consulate of Italy in Honolulu is pleased to announce that Italian citizens registered in A.I.R.E. as living in Hawaii can now obtain their passport biometric information in Honolulu. This means that Italian citizens renewing their passports or obtaining new passports for their children can be fingerprinted by the Honorary Consul.
This new process means that Italian citizens living in the Hawaii Consular district no longer need to fly to San Francisco in order to obtain passports. However, all of their paperwork must still be sent to the Consulate General of Italy in San Francisco for processing, and the new passports will be sent to them by US Postal Mail after all paperwork has been duly processed.
Note: This service is offered IN ADDITION to standard processing of passports in San Francisco, that can still be used as needed. If you still need a rush service to obtain a new passport, you will need to set up an appointment through the Passport office at the Consulate General of Italy in San Francisco.
IMPORTANT: The first step for this process is that you must create an account in Fast It, and then make sure your address is up-to-date. If it is not up-to-date, submit an A.I.R.E. registration request and wait until the status of the request is listed as “Trasmessa al Comune.”
