Tracing Italian Nationals Abroad

Law 675/96 regarding the privacy of personal information states that no public body can release information on persons to private citizens without the consent of the parties concerned.

Therefore, once the person being traced has been located, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs must obtain that person’s consent before informing those who submitted the request for the search.

In certain countries, such as in the U.S. for example, the local privacy law does not allow the release of information on people within their territorial jurisdiction. Application of legal restrictions and constraints must therefore be examined on a case-by-case basis.
