Does a US citizen need a "Declaration of Presence" when visiting Italy?

Jump to last reply

I found the below information on a website titled, "AngloInfo". (about tourists and residency rules)

Does anyone know if this is accurate? (I've been to Italy 3 times since 2007 and never picked up one of these. Was I breaking the law? Or is this not correctly represented?)

Note: As of May 28, 2007, all non-residents from non-Schengen countries (including Canada and the United States) are required to complete a Declaration of Presence (Dichiarazione di Presenza). Obtain and complete the Declaration of Presence at the airport on the day of arrival. Tourists arriving from a Schengen country can request the form from a local police station (commissariato di zona or questura) and submit it to the police within eight business days of arrival. It is important to keep a copy of the receipt issued by the Italian authorities. Failure to submit a Declaration of Presence within eight days is punishable by expulsion from Italy.
