Entering Italy

Citizens from countries in the European Union which have signed the Schengen Agreement may enter Italy with a valid identity card or passport. Citizens arriving from other countries must show a valid passport before crossing the state border, and if necessary, have an entry visa. The visa must indicate the length of your stay and the destination.

Citizens with an entry visa must go to the police headquarters within 8 days of arrival in order to register their visa. For tourists staying in hotels or other types of tourist accommodation the registration will be done automatically by the reception desk.
