Civil unions: implementation of Act 76/2016 “Regulations on civil unions between persons of the same sex and discipline of cohabitation“

The Act of 20 May 2016, n. 76 “Regulations of civil unions between persons of the same sex and discipline of cohabitation“ introduces in the Italian legislation the possibility for people of the same sex to establish a civil union.

Consular Offices can, as of now, process requests with regard to establishing civil unions between persons of the same sex, in which at least one is an Italian citizen.

The Italian citizen living abroad who, according to the local legislation, is married or has established a civil union, even before the enforcement of Act 76/2016, has the obligation to provide the relative document to the consular Office for its registration into the provisional register of civil unions in Italy.

For further information, contact the consular Office of the Embassy of Italy in Pretoria at the email address: consolato.pretoria@esteri.it
