Obtaining Vital Records in Italy

To obtain Italian vital records such as birth and death certificates, marriage certificates, and inheritance documents, it is necessary to make records requests to each individual local authority where the event took place. All requests must be in Italian. The Italian Bureau can handle every step of the record request for you.

What Is Needed

Italian law requires that records of births, deaths and marriages are maintained by the Registrar of Vital Statistics (Ufficio dello Stato Civile) in the location where the event occurred. There is no central Italian office which keeps these records, so requests must be made to each individual local authority and these requests must be in Italian. Since the local authorities do not provide any research services, the request for vital records must be submitted with all pertinent information already included.


How We Can  Help You

The Italian Bureau can obtain all necessary information and will submit the request in Italian to the proper local Italian authority. Should you require the vital record to be valid outside of Italy, for instance in a foreign court or at the Italian consulate, The Italian Bureau also provides legal translations. We can also get an international validation, for example through the Apostille, which is an authentication of signatures and seals on vital documents in one country so that these documents are deemed valid and will be recognized in another country.
