Welcome to the web site of the Italian Honorary Consulate in Phoenix, Arizona – U.S.A.

The Italian Honorary Consulate in Phoenix, Arizona is part of the network of international relationships maintained by the Government of the Italian Republic and operates under the guidance of, and in coordination with, the General Consulate of Italy in Los Angeles, California.

The primary task of the Italian Honorary Consul in Phoenix, Arizona is to carry out fast and direct assistance for the benefit of Italian nationals who permanently reside in Arizona or who are travelling through Arizona, for example for tourism, study or work-related reasons, particularly in situations of emergency. In addition to this primary and essential function, the Italian Honorary Consul in Phoenix, Arizona also provides certain consular services specified in the Decree of the Italian Foreign Ministry no. 5113/58/BIS.

Please be mindful that Honorary Consuls are not full time, career diplomats. They are delegated representatives of a Consulate General before local authorities, they assist the Italian community residing in their jurisdiction with regards to limited-scope interests, and finally they provide support with the broader goal of carrying out the interests of Italy at large. Honorary Consuls provide their services as volunteers, handling their consular duties in addition to their full-time, paying jobs. They cannot, therefore, be available in every circumstances and at any time to assist you beyond reasonable expectations, and they do not provide legal advice.

Should you need any of the services listed in the above-mentioned Ministerial Decree, I kindly invite you to read the sections of this web site that are of interest for you before booking your appointment or emailing/calling. In it you will find useful information that will greatly help you understanding how to prepare your documents, and ultimately will improve your overall experience when you’ll visit our office in person.  

Grazie e a presto!
