Passengers arriving in Italy
If you are travelling from a country outside the Schengen area, your documents will be checked by border police on arrival at Venice Airport. If your documents are not in order, you will not be permitted to leave the airport. In accordance with procedure, passengers without valid documents will be repatriated.
For detailed information see the Foreign Ministry website.

If your destination is a non-Schengen country, remember to check the validity and expiry date of your passport prior to departure.
