  • Hello
    I am in a real predicament. I am due to fly to Rome (from London) on 1/5/10. I am Irish and my Irish passport expired six months ago. I have just applied for a renewal in my married name. The problem is that there is a dispute on at the moment in the Irish Passport office and I am being told I may not have my passport for another 12 weeks. The passport office will not issue emergency passports for any other reason other than genuine family emergencies e.g. sickness or death. My holiday is booked and paid for and it is for my nephew's wedding. Can anyone advise? Would the airline allow me to fly with expired passport or should I check with Italian Embassy? Regards.
  • Just booked a holiday in Italy for July (i week ). My passport expires in August . Due to industrial action here in Ireland there are long delays in renewing passports .Our travel agent says there must be six months validity left on the passport , but the passport office site says that no EU member state can set limits on the validity for those travelling from other member states . Confused ..

  • Hi!!

    I come from Poland but live in London, and I'm about to fly to Rome in October with my choir to sing for pope... my friend told me that I will not be able to enter Italy because my passport expired, but I have polish ID of mine and I was able to easily enter Germany and England on it. So my question is.. Is my friend right? or the right is on my side and I can enter Italy on my ID without any problems.

    Thank you!!

  • I am going to Italy for two weeks on the 26th May 2013 my passport runs out 25th June 2013 do I need to renew it?
  • Hi Carol,
    I'm not sure where you hail from, which makes specific advice difficult but have a look at this Passport and Visa Overview for Italy. Technically you should be fine to travel on your current passport. The reason travel authorities generally suggest having six months remaining is because sometimes ground staff apply different rules and you can be unlucky. Many countries actually specify that you need three or six months but Italy is not one of them.
  • I live in US and I have US green card and Israeli citizenship.
    I would like to travel to Italy in August, but my passport expired 1.5 month ago and all Israel's consulates are on strike during last two months.
    May I travel to Italy with expired Israel's passport in this situation?
  • For US citizens they can visit Italy without visa for 90 days with valid passport. So a valid passport is necessary for everyone.

Howdy, Stranger!
