New hours effective May 20, 2020 until August 26, 2020:

The office is open by appointment only
currently every Wednesday morning
from 7:00 a.m. through 9:00 a.m.


ATTENTION STUDENT VISA APPLICANTS: As of July 20, 2020 the Italian General Consulate of Los Angeles is accepting applications for this type of visa only (no “elective residence”, please). To request an appointment, please send us an e-mail at (Re:appointment for student visa) and make sure to include your letter of acceptance/proof of enrollment from the Italian University/School.

The only practical and effective way to maintain the safety of everyone while delivering the services that are very important to our Italian community, is by moving the operations of the Honorary Consulate outside, in the bocce area of the Arizona American Italian Club. Please see the picture that we posted online under the section of this consulate called news/covid-19 so you can see where exactly to go. I want to publicly thank the President of the Arizona American Italian Club President, Mr. Joe Di Tommaso, for being so sensitive and available in accommodating the needs of the Honorary Consulate during such challenging times. This Honorary Consulate will continue to operate remotely except for the passport application process, which is held outside the building of the Arizona Italian American Club.

PLEASE NOTE: At this time it is not possible to reserve an appointment beyond the months of August 2020 and for the rest of the current year as we will reopen our appointment system only on Thursday, August 27, 2020 with new hours of operation. Unfortunately our software system does not allow a change of time slots that differentiates based on months, and that is the only reason why we are currently not taking appointments beyond the months of August 2020 (please keep in mind that passport appointments will continue to be held outside.) If you have a well-substantiated reason of emergency, please check our calendar for cancellations and feel free to contact at we will consider your request on a case-by-case basis. We apologize for any and all inconvenience that this might cause. As I hope you understand, we must remain flexible to navigate the challenges posed by the coronavirus. We will get over this pandemia if we help each other out, and that is exactly what we are trying to do.

In order to obtain consular services, you must wear a face mask and bring your signed disclaimer. We will not assist applicants who do not wear a face mask and/or do not present a signed disclaimer. Both I and the consular officers of the General Consulate of Italy in Los Angeles want to spare you a trip to LA just to renew your passport: please be kind and prepared for your appointment, and we will help you.

For pension matters, please leave a message by calling our phone no. (480) 304-4620. We will call you back to discuss your case. PLEASE NOTE: this call-in appointment system works only for those who request an appointment to discuss pensions matters. For any other matter that is handled by this Honorary Consulate, and particularly for Italian passport applications, please use the online reservation system available on this page.
