New rules of entry into Italy have been announced

To the delight of foreign tourists, after more than two years of restrictions, Italy has declared a state of emergency and lifted all measures related to the coronavirus. At the same time, the vaccinated status continues to operate. As Prime Minister Mario Draghi explained in a recent report, the goal is to “rediscover everything as soon as possible.” Due to the refusal of the authorities from the antiquarian rules from April 1, it will be easier for tourists to get to a European country. Relevant government decrees were quoted by the Italian media.

According to the instructions, the use of the “green pass” health certificate will be reduced, and the need to provide confirmation of vaccination status at many sites in April will also be phased out. From May 1, anti-type measures will require wearing protective masks indoors and on public transport. Then it will be removed. In addition, the official confirmed that the new entry rules apply to all foreign tourists, not just those entering from EU countries.

New rules for crossing the Italian border


Fully vaccinated tourists, ie those who have received one / two doses of coronavirus in the last nine months or those who have been revaccinated, are no longer required to take a negative coronavirus test from any country to enter Italy. . This means that vaccinated travelers can provide confirmation of vaccination status – a certificate or certificate of recovery after covid, if the tourist has been ill for the past six months.

For tourists without vaccination or with delayed vaccination

Unvaccinated travelers can also enter Italy and no longer need to be quarantined. We will remind, earlier they had to be in isolation after arrival within five days. However, they will be required to confirm coronavirus recovery or a negative PCR test.

For everyone

Regardless of vaccination status, everyone arriving in Italy must complete the passenger search form via the EUdPLF application. If they do not, they will have to undergo a five-day quarantine upon arrival. Passengers traveling to or departing from the country must wear an FFP2 mask.

About the Super Green Pass

Until the rules are lifted in April, Italians and guests over the age of 12 will not be able to enter most enclosed spaces without a Super Green Pass, an analogue of the Ukrainian vaccination or coronavirus certificate with a QR code from the State Service.

The pass contains information confirming vaccination or recovery from covid. The document does not support a negative COVID test result, so tourists can go to cinemas, theaters and stadiums if they have been vaccinated or have contracted an infection.

It is also needed to be able to dine in both indoor and outdoor restaurants, as well as for hotel accommodation, access to lifts, museums, archeological sites, gyms and swimming pools. In addition, the Super Green Pass is required for all modes of public transport, including local, regional and national. These include planes, trains, ships, buses, trams and subways.

How do I get it?

For those in the EU, a similar EU COVID digital certificate issued by a member of the bloc may be used instead of the Super Green Pass.
