Consular services

The Consular Office of the Italian Embassy in Kabul is open every day from Sunday to Thursday, from 9.30 to 12.30 and from 15.30 to 17.30.

The public will be received exclusively on appointment, following a request sent to this dedicated email address:, specifying name, surname, nationality, passport number, service requested.

The Italian Consulate protects Italian nationals in various circumstances. For example: violation of their basic rights, arrest or detention, emergencies in crisis situations, locating family members, issuance of travel documents in case of loss or stolen passport, repatriation of remains.

Consular services are provided according to the principles of equality, fairness, efficiency and transparency. The exercise of certain rights and access to some services are available only to Italians who have registered with the Italian Citizens Residing Abroad (AIRE) program as required by Law n. 470 of 1988.

Italians residing in Afghanistan can use the Consular Services On-Line through the "Fast-It" portal, accessible at

Through the portal it will be possible to proceed to the registration of the Registry of Italian Residents Abroad (AIRE), communicate any changes in residence within the consular district, which includes the entire territory of the Islamic Republic of Afghanistan, as well as follow the trend of your request. The platform is also a means of immediate communication with the Consular Office.

The introduction of the "Fast-it" portal is part of the process of digitization of the procedures pursued by the Foreign Ministry network, with significant advantages in terms of efficiency and speed of consular services offered to Italian nationals. Moreover, for Italian citizens living in Afghanistan, the service has an added advantage in terms of safety, limiting the need to physically go to the Consular Office.

To use the On-Line Consular Services it is necessary to register on the Portal by clicking here. It should be noted that access to the portal can also be made through the credentials of the Public System for Digital Identities (SPID), to which the Farnesina adheres. More information on SPID credentials is available (in Italian or German) here, in particular under "Puo' avere SPID anche un cittadino italiano residente all'estero?".
