AIRE registrations are transmitted by each Italian consulate to the last municipality of residence in Italy. It is then up to these to carry out the registration practices in their respective registry offices. Some municipalities are very fast, others much less so. In any case, from the point of view of the citizen, the registration has been regularly carried out once it has been communicated to the Italian consulate where the citizen resides abroad, also electronically (qv). It is possible in many foreign consulates to register for AIRE and obtain other information such as change of registration etc. through the electronic portal of the Farnesina.
