How to contact your home consulate in Naples if you need citizen services (like a new passport application)
Remember: Embassies are for diplomats; Consulates are the citizens-services offices most visitors might need—for lost passports, visas, and the like.
The United States maintains a consulate in Naples:
- U.S. Consulate General Naples
Piazza della Repubblica
(Fun fact: Established in 1796, the Consulate General Naples is actually one of the U.S.’s oldest Foreign Service posts.)
For citizens of other countriers, your nearest consulate is in Rome.
Note that many consulates require appointments—and even if not, an appointment will make the interminable bureacratic wait much shorter.
Also, security tends to be, understandably, strict. Leave at your hotel all bags, backpacks, oversized purses, knives, glass bottles, laptops, cameras, and anything else that would raise eyebrows in an airport security–type situation. (Many also insist you keep your cellphones in your pocket or purse when on the premises.)
