Travel documents for minors – Italy
Italian minors can travel within and outside the EU with ait: identity card or passport (for non-EU countries).
Until they reach 14 years old, Italian minors can leave the country provided that:
- they are accompanied by at least one parent or guardian;
- or by up to a maximum of two accompanying persons, designated by the parents or guardians in a it (dichiarazione di accompagnamento) to the police (questura), who will be indicated on the minor's passport or a separate document to be shown at the border.
The same documents needed to travel from Italy are required to travel back.
Minors with EU citizenship must have a valid passport or identity card. If they travel:
- on their own or:
- with adults who are not their legal guardian(s); or
- with only one parent
they may need an extra (official) document signed by their parents, second parent or legal guardian(s) authorising them to travel. This document may vary from country to country and the traveller must therefore ask for information from the authorities in their own country before travelling.
An EU minor wishing to travel from Italy needs the same documents required to enter the country.
