When travelling from Malpensa Airport it is important to check and ensure you have all the relevant documents prior to travel. Passengers are required to provide proof of ID in order to check in. For international travel a valid passport, and visa where necessary, is required. Many authorities require a passport that is valid for at least six months at the time of flying.
In certain instances, such as domestic flights, passengers are allowed to travel using their ID cards as a valid form of identification. If in doubt, check with your airline or booking agent before setting off to the airport; otherwise you may be refused entry.
If travelling outside the EU, passengers may require a valid visa for the duration of their stay, as well as health documents.
