COVID-19 TRAVEL TO ITALY: New rules from April 1st 2022

Until 30 APRIL 2022, the following rules remain in force for travel to Italy:

  • PASSENGER LOCATOR FORM to the carrier at the time of boarding, and to anyone in charge of carrying out checks, by displaying their mobile device or paper proof.
  • Proof of vaccination or recovery within 6 months or a  negative antigen / pcr test (antigen done 24 hours before ore PCR done 48 hours before)

Regulation while in Italy.

Starting from 1st of April 2022, the new rules for the containment of Covid 19 will apply. In many places you can enter without a green pass (digital covid cert), in others you will only need the basic one (antigen test or PCR test).

The rules for the isolation of those who are positive do not change: 7 days if you are vaccinated, 10 if you are not immunized or if the last dose was taken for more than 120 days.

Instead, the quarantine for those who have had close contact with infected people changes: self-surveillance, “with the obligation to wear Ffp2, indoors or in the presence of gatherings, until the 10th day following the date of the last close contact” applies to those who are vaccinated and for those who are not. Healthcare professionals must perform an antigen or molecular test for 5 days from the last contact with a positive.

From 1st to 30th April the reinforced green pass – which is obtained if you are vaccinated with three doses, with two doses of less than 120 days, or if you are recovered – will be mandatory for:
