The Salvation Army flag was unfurled in Italy on 20 February 1887 by Major and Mrs James Vint and Lieutenant Fanny Hack, though subsequent difficulties necessitated withdrawal. In 1890 Fritz Malan (later lieut-colonel) began meetings in his native village in the Waldensian Valleys. In 1893 Army work was re-established.

In a decree of the President on 1 April 1965, The Salvation Army was recognised as a philanthropic organisation competent to acquire and hold properties and to receive donations and legacies. It received legal status as a religious body/association on 20 March 2009.

On 8 October 2007 The Salvation Army began operations in Greece, the work being linked to the Italy Command with the command leadership giving guidance and support to future development. Thessaloniki was identified as the centre of the new undertaking and Captains Polis Pantelidis ad Maria Konti-Galinou, UK officers of Greek nationality, were entrusted with the task of launching te Army's mission in their home country. Greece was recognised as part of the command on 2 February 2011. Operations commenced in the captital, Athens, in February 2012.
