Description

Italian Passport

Italian passports are issued to Italian citizens for the purpose of international travel. Biometric passports have been available since 26 October 2006, are valid for 10, 5 or 3 years (depending on the applicant’s age). Every Italian citizen is also a citizen of the European Union. The passport, along with the national identity card allows for free rights of movement and residence in any of the states of the European Union, European Economic Area and Switzerland.

Physical appearance

Italian passports share the common design of EU Passports: they are burgundy-colored, with the Emblem of Italy emblazoned in the center of the front cover. The word “Passaporto”, meaning passport, is inscribed below the coat of arms and “Unione Europea” (English: European Union), “Repubblica Italiana” (English: Italian Republic) above. The biometry symbol appears right below “Passaporto” in the centre. The current version of the passport contains 48 pages.
