Blue no-fee passports are issued to dependents of military members, maroon official passports are issued to DoD civilians and their dependents. To distinguish a blue no-fee passport from a blue tourist passport, the no-fee has the following statement in the back: “This passport is valid only for use in connection with the bearer’s residence abroad as a dependent of a member of the American military or naval forces on active duty outside the United States.” No-Fee Passports are used for official travel of dependents, while Tourist Passports are used for all leave-type and leisure travel.
If the Active Duty Member is on an unaccompanied tour and has Italy as a follow-on assignment the dependents still must have the visas for their dependents no-fee passports prior to their arrival in Italy. Work with the passport agent at your unaccompanied location for the specific requirements on how and where your dependents should apply for the visas at their designated location in the U.S.
As you prepare for your PCS to Italy, if you are active duty military bringing dependents or are a DoD civilian (with or without dependents), it is absolutely essential that *prior* to leaving your current assignment each member must have the mandatory required no-fee or official passport that contains an Italian Missione Visa!
Work with the passport agent at your current location on completing this process and they will refer to the DoD Foreign Clearance Guide for more information. A tourist passport CANNOT be used in place of the no-fee passport.
All DoD Civilians and their dependents must work with the passport agent at the losing base to apply for the visas through the Passport Matters Office in Crystal City, VA and receive the Missione Visa from the Italian Embassy in Washington D.C.
If the required documents are not in-hand *prior* to departure and subsequent arrival in Italy, members will not permitted to enter Italy or will be subject to deportation should they somehow arrive without them. U.S. Passport Agents in Italy cannot process Italian Mission Visa applications. NOTE: EU citizens do not require a Visa.
