Passport/valid identity card needed for border crossing. It is necessary to travel with one of the two valid documents. The village forms part of the EU. With the country's entry into the Schengen area, since the end of March 2008, have been eliminated controls at land borders, ports and airports. For any changes related to the survival of the Passport request, you may want to inquire in advance at the Embassy or Consulate of the country present in Italy or at your travel agent.

Health

The health situation can be considered normal, even if local health structures are not at the level of those in the West. Italian citizens who travel temporarily (for tourism, business, study or work) in the country (Member State of the European Union) can receive necessary medical care provided by local public health care if they have the European health insurance card (TEAM) so-called health card. The TEAM replaces the previous models E110, E111, E128 and E119 and is being distributed by the Ministry of economy and finance. Those who had not yet been received to its ASL can contact and ask for the "provisional replacement certificate". Warnings I'm quite frequent cases of encephalitis or meningitis transmitted by ticks that may be found in meadows and rural areas around the capital. The risk is greater in the spring-summer period during which ticks are most prevalent. Are therefore recommended, after consulting a doctor, vaccines against these diseases. Please note also-in the central area of the country-a sharp increase of cases of hepatitis-a. We recommend that you take out before undertaking the journey, a health insurance that includes, in addition to the coverage of medical expenses, even the eventual repatriation medical air or transfer in another country.
