Updated Tariffs below as of October 2018

These are the steps you need to do for translation and legalization of documents at Italian Embassy in Philippines

1. Prepare the document/s - PSA birth certificate, CENOMAR, marriage certificate, NBI etc.. 

2. DFA Red Ribbon - have your document/s authenticated at DFA

3. Go to VIA for stamping/legalization of documents (www.via.ph) -Bring your documents and requirements (You need to send an SPA -Special Power of Attorney- from Philippine Embassy/Consulate if your representative will transact on your behalf). When the documents are ready, they will be delivered through courier. It can take up to 3 months.

-NO need to make an appointment at the Italian Embassy in Manila for translating and stamping of documents.

For Translation of Documents to Italian Language:

There are few offices that offer translation services at Zeta II Bldg, 191 Salcedo Street, Legaspi Village, Makati City, Metro Manila where the Italian Embassy is located. The cost of the translation depends on the kind of document and the processing time. 

For each NSO document:

900 PHP for same day processing

For the cost of other documents, you can check the form below.


Price list and processing time for Italian translation services

For Legalization (Stamp) of Documents at Italian Embassy in Manila:

I had an appointment at the Italian Embassy in Makati last March 26 for stamping/legalization of documents but when my representative was there, they said that documents for legalization/stamping are handled by VIA. So there is no need to go to Italian Embassy for legalization/stamping of documents.

Central to the problem were the expanding distances to supply magazines and the fact that no supply wagon could keep up with a forced marched infantry column please visit. The weather itself became an issue where according to historian Richard K.

  11. Hi caleen. can you light me up if I understood the above information. My parents in law left their marriage certificate and birth certificate here in the Philippines and asked me to have these documents translated and stamped. Have a few questions.
    1. Do I need to have an appointment with the Italian embassy for the translation of documents? doesnt the embassy translate the documents?, as stated on your blog "a few offices offer translation services".
    2. And if I understood the blog right and to sumarize the translation and stamped. A. Get the documents translated at an affiliate office near the embassy b. After translated, submit the documents at the embassy to get them stamped.

    Im from a province far away from manila so please yourreply would be much appreciated.

    1. Hi Patrick. I can answer your questions based on the last time I had my documents translated and stamped :)

      2.The Italian embassy don't translate documents. You can find offices with translation services in the same building of the embassy or you can have them translated at VIA.
      2. go to VIA for the processing of stamping/legalization. just make sure to bring all the requirements :)

  25. hello, I appreciate the detailed information. I am planning to get married to an Italian Citizen in Italy, but first I need to get my philippine birth certificate translated and authenticated/legalized in the Philippines. I am currently located in Italy. Do you know an agency who I can pay to be my special power of attorney? I have a deadline of 2 1/2 months since I am on a tourist visa (I am an American Citizen). If I have a agency who is aware and knows exactly what to do, it would definitely help me beat my deadline. Thank you, Z

    1. Saan po ako pwede pumunta? - May nagtatranslate ng documents to Italian sa may building ng Italian Embassy, nasa blog yung address; pwede rin sa VIA

      Paano po ang proseso? - ibibigay mo lang sa kanila yung document at bayaran

      magkanu po per document / Page? - depende kung rush or hindi ang charges. Meron price list sa blog under For Translation of Documents to Italian Language

      Ilang araw po bago ma release? - pwede 3 days, 1 day or same day release. Meron price list and processing time sa blog under For Translation of Documents to Italian Language

      sana po matulungan nyo po ako - Suggest ko ask mo yung sister mo if kailangan din ipa legalize/stamo yung document sa Italian Embassy. If yes, just follow the guide sa blog kung ano ang mga kailangan para ma ready mo na bago ka pumunta sa VIA.
