For security reasons and in compliance with binding MFA regulations, access to the external perimeter and to the Chancery Offices can only take place by previous appointment with the Headquarters staff (for relevant contacts, see here), to be agreed at least 24 hours in advance.
Guests will be welcomed at the entrance of the Chancery by their contact person, in the presence of the Arma dei Carabinieri Military Officer on duty or other authorized member of the staff, and must present a valid identity document and sign the visitor access register. Before entering the Chancery Offices, the guest must also deposit any mobile phone devices in the appropriate security containers.
These measures also apply with regard to the access of journalists and press and media, who must agree their appointment in writing and well in advance with the Headquarters staff, in order to ensure the necessary prior coordination with the Ministerial Offices in charge for for institutional communication. Unless expressly authorized, for security reasons, video footage inside and in the outer perimeter of the Permanent Mission will not be permitted.
Thanks in advance for the observance of these provisions.
