Identity of Italy

 

 

 

The Italian electronic identity card may be issued to anyone resident in Italy and to Italian citizens living abroad. A card issued to an Italian citizen is accepted in lieu of a passport in all Europe (except in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine) and in Turkey, Georgia, Egypt and Tunisia. It is not compulsory to have it or to carry it, unless expressly ordered by public security authorities. The fact that most people in Italy still carry the old form of ID without machine readable zones issued until 2018, often causes delays at border controls. Price is €22.21
