Italy relaxes travel rules in line with EU rules. EU citizens will only travel to Italy with a Green Pass.
Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza announced on Wednesday that from February 1, Italy will relax its restrictions on COVID-19 for all travelers from European Union countries.
The Minister signed an order stating that all visitors to the EU will be allowed to enter the country only by presenting a Green Pass, eliminating the other existing applications.
We remind you that The EU will introduce new travel rules, from February 1st! The EU COVID digital certificate will play a key role!
Italy relaxes the rules of travel according to the rules
Green Pass is a document that proves whether a person has been vaccinated, recovered or tested negative recently. This means that all EU citizens with one of the above certificates will be able to enter Italy without having to follow additional entry rules.
The Italian authorities are currently requiring all EU citizens to take a negative entrance test, regardless of their vaccination status and country of origin. However, as the Omicron variant is already widespread in the EU, the authorities intend to remove the pre-entry testing requirement.
Conditions for entry into Italy, currently in force
All EU / Schengen countries are currently on List C of Italy, with the exception of Vatican State and San Marino, which are on List A. Passengers arriving in Italy on List A are allowed unrestricted entry, provided they present a valid vaccination or recovery certificate. The two documents can be displayed on paper or in digital format.
Travelers from the rest of the EU / Schengen Area who are listed on List C are currently required to present a vaccination certificate or a recovery certificate together with a negative test result, which must be done 48 hours before arrival.
In addition, everyone must complete a digital passenger location form before entering Italy. The form replaces the self-declaration made to the carrier and may be submitted digitally or in paper format.
Although EU travelers will be required to comply with the above rules by 1 February, they will still be allowed to enter for travel purposes without having to provide a key reason for their trip.
