Irish citizens getting married in Italy

To get married in Italy an Irish citizen must apply for a “Certificate of Nulla Osta”. Irish citizens living in Ireland should apply to the consular section of the Department of Foreign Affairs. Your certificate of Freedom to marry will be sent by the Department of Foreign Affairs to the Irish Embassy in Rome who will then forward it to the district where you will be married. In most other cases, the Certificate of Freedom to marry will be issued by the department and sent directly to you. Irish Citizens living abroad should contact their nearest Irish Embassy to apply for a Certificate of Freedom to Marry. Please note that the Embassy suggests applications to be made about four months before the wedding, while the Nulla Osta will be issued about one month before the wedding.
