Ticket printing instructions and advice
Verify that the ticket has correct information with respect to your purchase (for example: Adult, May 10, 2015 for a fixed date ticket on that date.
2. Check that the ticket image has a clear QR code image. We recommend that you make a visual comparison of your printed ticket on your computer screen. Ensure that the QR code (square with checker-board style marks) is well defined and not overly fuzzy, pale or grainy. This is an important step to expedite ticket validation at the Exposition entry point.
3. Don’t re-size the ticket before printing (as it may render the QR code illegible).
4. Print each ticket on a single page of A4 paper (or A11 in the USA), taking care that printing is single side only.
5. Use a photo print quality setting with a minimum of 300 dpi. We advise you not to print in draft quality.
6. Ensure that you fold each ticket separately only on the indicated fold-lines and not across the QR code image, leaving the QR code entirely visible on the outside of the ticket.
7. Do not cut or rip the ticket.
8. Do not cancel anything printed.
9. Do not write anything on the ticket that covers or cancels the printed data or the QR code.
10. On the day of your Expo visit, ensure each visitor approaches the entry turnstile with their correct ticket in hand (for example ‘Family Adult’ and ‘Family Child’ tickets held accordingly).
I have problems printing my tickets, how can I solve them?
We suggest that you print your tickets as follows:

In the event of lost or stolen entrance tickets or Season Passes, am I able to request a replacement or a refund?
Tickets for Expo Milano 2015 cannot be replaced or refunded, in accordance with the Terms and conditions - Rules for visitors.
In case of loss or theft of Season Passes, pass holders may request the issue of a replacement Season Pass, in their own name only, presenting the lost or stolen report made with the relevant authorities to the ticket office. The pass holder must also authorize in writing the blocking of the lost or stolen Season Pass. This operation is irreversible, therefore, in the event the Season Pass reported as lost or stolen is found, Expo will consider only the replacement Season Pass as valid and active. The replacement Season Pass may be requested at the ticket office on the exhibition site or at Expo Gate.
Damaged, destroyed or illegible Season Passes cannot be replaced, in accordance with the Terms and conditions - Rules for visitors.
If my ticket is damaged or illegible, can I request a replacement ticket?
No, unfortunately not in accordance with the Tickets Terms and Conditions – Visitors rules. However, if you purchased your ticket online from Expo whereby you have access to your original ticket file, you can tear up the damaged or illegible original and reprint.
