I'm an Italian citizen , and i planned to travel to Thailand (Phuket) around July. I'm not a beginner traveller, but I only travelled around Europe. I bought the plane ticket, bought hotel and so on , when I suddenly remembered I need a passport(Europe has made me used to thinking that I only needed ID ).

How much time does it take more or less to obtain a passport in Italy? is it generally more or less than 2 months? Am I still able to perform this trip or I should move to the "refund option"?

This really depends on where you live and how busy the Questura is. You can register online for an appointment, then you must present in person.
An officer will scan your fingerprints and gather the required documents. You can find a list of required documents here.

There's a fee of € 42,50 plus a "Marca da Bollo" stamp of € 73,50.

It will take about 2 weeks during non-busy periods. (personal experience)

Edit after comment:
Well then, looks like in Milan you can ask for urgent processing of your application only for health or work issues.
Immigration office seems separate from Passport office, that's good news.

  • Assuming i'm from Milano, and summer is coming...i'm not gonna have a good experience...

  • @Anon You may be lucky as offices are separate (refugees applications should not slow passport applications). If you hurry and register online now you may be able to get your passport in time May 10, 2017 at 14:25

If you get the Italian Citizen, the total time is no more than 6 weeks (1 month and a half). So, I believe you will not spend more than that. I got this information from here.
