Passport Requirement

A valid passport is required for entry. If you are an American citizen and have a passport, check its expiration date. American passports are valid for five or ten years from the date of issue. Your passport must remain valid throughout the entire travel period and for six (6) months or more after the completion of your trip. If your passport has expired or will expire during your planned trip, or need a new passport, apply at any passport agency. A complete listing of passport agencies is available at

VISA Requirements

Visitors from the United States need only a valid passport for entry into Italy (no visa required), and may stay for a period of up to 90 days. For longer stays a resident's permit must be obtained from the Italian Consulate. If you are traveling on a non-US passport consult the nearest Italian Embassy or Consulate for entry requirements.
No visas (and no extension to previously issued visas) may be granted to tourists who are already on Italian territory.
For other questions on passport or visa regulations check the official Italian Embassy website:
