I am flying from Chicago to Istanbul and my flight will layover in Rome for an hour and a half. I am holding a US green card and am traveling with Iraqi passport. I am not sure if I will require an Italian transit visa or will I be fine since am not leaving the transit area? I tried the Italy embassy support line and they keep telling me to check the website and there was not a clear answer for that.


1 Answer 1


From this page, it would seem that you do not need an transit visa to transit in Italy.
