The Consulate

The Consulate General of Italy in Chicago is located at 500 North Michigan Avenue, Suite 1850, Chicago, Illinois, 60611.

The Consulate is directed by a Consul General, a career diplomat, under whose authority falls a vast jurisdiction, comprising the following States: Colorado, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wisconsin and Wyoming. According to the estimates of this office more than 22,000 Italian citizens live in State of Illinois and over 30,000 live in the entire jurisdiction. In addition, according to a recent census compiled by agencies of the United States, approximately 735,000 American citizens of Italian origin live in Illinois and 1,435,000 live in the before mentioned jurisdiction.

Presiding over a vast territory, inhabited by over 65 million people, the Consulate General in Chicago is separated by more than a thousand miles from some of the furthest locations included in its jurisdiction. For this reason, a network of Honorary Consular offices was established, which is currently composed of four Honorary Vice Consulates and a pair of Consular Correspondents located in areas with higher concentration of Italian citizens.

The office is open Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. The office is open to the public from 9 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Outside of office hours and on weekends, an emergency number is available for Italian Citizens at (312) 909-0304. These messages are monitored to guarantee immediate response in case of real emergency. Emergency refers to Italian citizens who are residents or tourists, in case of arrest and detention (even if temporary, while in transit in airports); in case of serious car accidents; in case of medical emergency; in case of loss of travel documents in close proximity of a departure or reentry in Italy.
