How can I know if my birth or marriage has been registered with the Comune di Roma?

If you need assistance to verify if your birth or marriage has actually been transcribed into the registers of the Comune di Roma, please send an email to assistance@vademecumitalia.com or fill out the Contact us form with your information. We can let you know this extremely important information within a few hours.

You proudly became an Italian citizen and your Italian Consulate informed you that they sent the papers to the Comune di Roma (Municipality of Rome) for the transcription of your act of birth and AIRE registration, and now you want to collect your estratto per riassunto dell’atto di nascita (birth certificate) or, you need to collect your estratto per riassunto dell’atto di matrimonio (marriage certificate) in order to apply for Italian citizenship by marriage.

These above are two common cases in which the interested person needs to know if his/her birth or marriage has been registered with the Comune di Roma.

Birth or marriage registration via the Italian Consulate. Is your birth or marriage registered with the Comune di Roma?

You were probably informed by the Consulate that they would forward your papers to the “Comune di Roma“. Therefore, your birth or marriage was to be registered shortly after so that you could then request the estratto di nascita or matrimonio (i.e.certification that proves the registration of the birth or marriage).

Unfortunately, the fact that the Consulate has sent the papers (via post or via pec) to your Italian Comune, especially the Comune di Roma, does not necessarily mean that the birth or marriage has actually been transcribed, even if they sent the papers many years ago.

In fact, based on our experience, it has happened quite often that papers were sent from the Consulate to the Comune via post and were lost, or were sent to the wrong address, or were received by the wrong office of the Comune that did not pass them on to the competent office (it can happen in very big municipalities like Rome).

Moreover, it has also happened that the papers have been sent via pec (certified email), but to the wrong pec address of the Comune, or that some papers were missing (like Apostille, Cons01, translations etc.), because they had not been correctly scanned.

In many other cases, the Comune actually received the papers from the Consulate but forgot or did not have time to transcribe the birth or marriage. It also happens quite often that the birth has been registered but the marriage has not.

These are all cases that we have seen in the past years and that we keep seeing today, which means that the birth or marriage has not been transcribed yet.

What should you do in order to know if your birth or marriage has been registered?

In light of the above, before asking your Comune to send you the estratto, it is advisable to check with the Comune if your birth or marriage has actually been transcribed. In fact, if you do not have this information you risk wasting a lot of time because Italian municipalities can take months if not years to answer even if they only have to tell you that they cannot send you the estratto because they have no record of your birth or marriage. This is even more true for the Comune di Roma and especially during the Coronavirus pandemic.

Therefore, if you need assistance to verify if your birth or marriage has actually been transcribed into the registers of the Comune di Roma, please send an email to assistance@vademecumitalia.com or fill out the Contact us form with your information. We can let you know this extremely important information within a few hours.

We we let you know what documents you will need to collect and send to us, and how an expert Italian lawyer can assist you with the transcription of your act of birth or marriage.

Please note that it usually takes us 30 days from the request to obtain the transcription of your act of birth or marriage with the Comune di Roma. A request via the Consulate usually takes from 12 months to 2 or 3 years, if it ever happens as said above.

What can you do if your birth or marriage has already been transcribed?

    Hello ,
    I want every reader of this coment to know how efficient is the work of David Monterossi:
    Last year he helped me get a Certificate of Integrity from Rome for the Portugues authorities, and this year with all the pandemic that is going on he managed to register my marriage in rome in less than a month, considering all the new terms of audience acceptance in Italy.
    I just want to say – Thank you David for all the effort.
    Stay safe .
    Shlomit.
