i just bought a Ryanair plane ticket from Marrakech to Milano-Bergamo, but I see on the ticket that this is not a boarding card and I need a visa. I'm a Moroccan passport holder who lives in italy, so I have an italian identity card and an unlimited residence permit, and actually I never needed a visa to travel to/from Morocco/ Italy.
I traveled to Marrakech one month ago with a normal ticket ( with the QR code). So now i have to go back to Italy.

I don't know why i received a boarding pass like that.... Can someone help me, please?

    You only get a boarding pass when you check in on the day that you actually travel. – Hilmar Apr 2 at 14:01

    Your Moroccan passport, togeather with your residence permit, is what you need to show. Note: An italian identity card, issued to non Italians, is only valid within Italy. The residence permit card, togeather with your passport, should be used for any cross border travel. – Mark Johnson Apr 4 at 0:52

It is very common for that to happen, because the airline is required to verify that you really have what paperwork you claim to have - anybody could say he has such a card. No worries, at check-in, someone will look at your card, and you’ll get your boarding pass.

You need to go to Ryanair's check-in desk and show your reservation as well as your EU National Identity Card to get the real boarding pass.

Ryanair will not issue boarding cards for extra-EU flights until they have verified that you have valid visa right to enter.

but i see on the ticket that this is not a boarding card and i need a Visa

I don't know exactly where you can read this and with which exact wording, but don't worry. The airline is simply using the word "visa" in a generic way and both an ID card and a secondary EU passport will get you to Milan. You just show them at the desk

    OP does not have an EU passport. It will be necessary to show the foreign passport and the Italian residence permit. – phoog Apr 4 at 6:35

Your Moroccan passport, togeather with your residence permit, is what you need to show.

Note: An italian identity card, issued to non Italians, is only valid within Italy.

Carta D'identita, issued to non Italians

Note the
  • NON VALIDA PER L'ESPATRIO (not valid for travel abroad)
  • entry in the lower right corner area

    The residence permit card, togeather with your passport, should be used for any cross border travel.
