That's what I thought, too, but unfortunately I couldn't find any official information that would support this claim. Curiously, is this regulated by law?

Yeah, I thought about that, too. But still, it's a 5-6 hour trip both ways which seems a little overkill only for obtaining a SIM card...

On a side note: Today I talked to a Vodafone Italia representative asking how it's possible for me to obtain a Smart Passport SIM while being abroad and without any previous Italian registration. They said it's simply not possible since I would either need to provide a previous Italian number or go see a sales point in person... Which kinda begs the question: How is a reseller like able to ship Vodafone Smart Passport SIMs world wide by only requesting a copy of the ID / passport??
