Translations in Italian Language


Translations in Italian Language

The Consulate of Italy in Karachi does not have a translation office, but can only certify the conformity of the translation into Italian of some documents drawn up in English.

These documents are required by law from Italian citizens for particular procedures in Italy, such as updating the Civil Status (birth certificates, marriage, divorce, death) or, as regards Pakistani citizens, the certificates are required for family reunion or requests for Italian citizenship.

The translators recognized by the Consulate of Italy in Karachi are currently:

In case the original document is in Urdu language then it must be translated first into English and then into Italian. The Consulate must receive the certificate in Urdu with both translations, from Urdu to English and from English to Italian.


This Consulate is NOT responsible for the quality of the service provided by them, for their work and the fees requested.

Before delivering the documents, they must be legalized by the MOFA - Ministry of Foreign Affairs - Camp Office in Karachi or Quetta.


Any other more technical or necessary documentation in Italy for purposes other than those mentioned above, must be translated into Italian only by specialized and accredited translators in Italy.

For judicial or commercial matters, translators can be contacted accredited by the Italian Courts, where appropriate lists exist.
