Italian nationals registered with the Italian Embassy in Tel Aviv (A.I.R.E or Anagrafe Italiani Residenti all’Estero), in cases of justified emergency, can apply for a passport by attending the Consulate without an appointment, Mondays to Fridays from 9:00am to 12 noon to submit the necessary documents.

3. Italian nationals are informed that given the waiting times and due to the number of applicants who have already booked an appointment, so as to ensure that they receive fair treatment, access to the emergency procedure is limited and it may be suspended based on the number of applicants with an appointment waiting to be seen by the Passport Office.

4. Italian nationals who use the emergency procedure are informed that they may have to wait until 12 noon and beyond. This is to ensure that priority is given to applicants with an appointment. They are further informed that the emergency passport service may be suspended and postponed to the following day. This decision is at the sole discretion of the Head of the Passport Office, who acts in the interests of the smooth running of the service as well as in the interest of those Italian nationals who have booked an appointment following the standard procedure
