PLEASE NOTE and READ CAREFULLY the two bullets below if you are getting married in TUSCANY or Southern than Tuscany:

  1. Due to difficulties we recently had with the Russian Consulates we cannot grant a wedding of a Russian Citizen to be possible in Italy, unless you plan to stay in Italy for over 7-9 working days and able to travel between Rome and the city of the wedding.
  2. For weddings in central and south Italy (mainly in Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio i.e. Rome) the consulate of reference is the one based in Rome. It is impossible to make appointments directly with the consulate. So you shall consider being in Rome and stay there to be supported by a para-consular agency, who is the only authorized to access the consulate and request your Nulla Osta. This procedure will NOT require an appointment, but will need you give them your passports and all the documents which will be returned to you after 2-3 working days in the best case (it may take up to a full week!). We might be able to assist you but cannot do anything on your behalf (not even collecting the documents after 3 days…)

To obtain the Nulla Osta you shall bring to the Consulate General the following documentation (our wedding planner assigned to you can help you with this):

1) If the applicant has NOT been married before:

– The real Russian domestic and foreign passport (original)

– Birth certificate (original or certified true copy in full form – including full names of the parents)

2) If the applicant has been married before, but the name did not change:

5) If the other spouse to be is not Russian you must ALSO bring his/her:

– Copy of his/her passport,

– Official document stating his residency (it cannot be a bill or bank statement, it must be an official document either released by the vital statistics office or the registrar or a picture ID with the full address of residence of the other spouse)

 

In the case of a change of surname, name and patronymic, it is requested to show the original certificate of the change released by the Russian civil registry offices.

PLEASE NOTE that for weddings in central Italy (mainly in Tuscany, Umbria and Lazio i.e. Rome) the consulate of reference is the one based in Rome. For weddings in Venice or the Lake region the consulate of reference is that of Milan where you should book a meeting yourself via their online booking system (we are not allowed to book on your behalf) Milan Consulate Meeting Scheduler
