The Italian Ministry of Health has announced that from February 1 it will lower the restrictions on coronavirus for all visitors from the European Union.
Health Minister Roberto Speranza has signed an order according to which passengers from EU countries will need only the so-called green certificates, the agency said.
The green certificate certifies COVID-19 vaccination, illness or a negative test result.
According to the ministry, Speranzi’s order also restores travel to a number of non-European tourist destinations, including six other destinations: Cuba, Singapore, Turkey, Thailand (limited to Phuket), Oman and French Polynesia.
167,206 coronavirus cases and 426 deaths were reported in Italy on Wednesday. The day before, 186,740 cases of infection were registered, 468 died.
