THEFT OF IDENTITY PAPERS

Lose your passport, lose your holiday
Rome City Council and the British Embassy in Rome are promoting a prevention campaign against passport loss, aimed at all English speaking tourists visiting Rome.
The message “Lose your passport, lose your holiday: keep it safe” will be advertised on all transport services including train stations, buses, airports, info points & social media, by means of posters, videos, banners and multimedia supports.
The campaign highlights the importance of keeping your passport safe. Losing your passport will cost you time, money and could ruin your entire holiday. Obtaining an emergency travel document can take several days. You may need to obtain a police report, get new passport photos, and get to and from your Embassy.
