Rome to issue civil status certs over the counter

City reverts to old procedure in obtaining many certificates.

From 1 October Rome residents will be able to obtain a series of civil status certificates over the counter, without an appointment, as the city's town halls return to the old system of issuing certs.

The documents, which relate to civil status, residency, citizenship, birth, marriage or civil union, can be requested directly at town hall offices around Rome, without the Tupassi booking system.

Some of these certificates can also be issued jointly on a single, combined document, for example residency and citizenship, or birth, residency and vaccinations.

Residents will just need to fill out a specific form and present a valid identification document.

For full details of which certificates are available under the new system and how to obtain them see Roma Capitale website
