    Generally I advise clients that they should have 6 months on their passport.
    You should check with us immigrations as the issue is returning to the us.

    to get an answer, you should tell us your nationality,
    because italian rules about passports could be different from country to country

    Hello, I also travel to Italy in August but from the UK, and my children, (who are UK passport holders the same as me) have passports that expire in October too. We fly into Venice in August, and then drive to Croatia for 5 days, and then return to Venice to fly back to the UK. Do I need to get them new passports first?

    What are the requirements to fly to Italy from Canada? Do I need a passport?
  • edited 2:27PM
    the requirement from Canada is a valid passport

    the requirement from UK (UK citizens) is a valid passport OR an Identity Card

    We are travelling to Rome from Australia in October, do we need an entry/tourist visa on an Australian passport?

    Billy you have to check first that you parents didnt apply for Australian citizenship before you were born, if they did then they lost their Italian citizenship and you would have no claim. You would have to apply as a descendant of Italians and would be required to live in Italy for 3 years in Italy to become a citizen of Italy.
    Call the Consulate of Italy in Australia

    My Grandparents are Italian and nationalized as Australian Citizens in the 1960's.
    My dad was born in Australia in 1958 before my grandparents became Australian citizens.
    Am I able to get an Italian passport? My cousins have theirs through their father (my uncle)
