Removal of pre-departure COVID-19 entry requirement for travelers who can provide proof of vaccination, proof of recovery, or a negative COVID-19 test result
On 1 April 2022, the government of Italy lifted the requirement for travelers to provide a pre-departure test result. As a result, all fully vaccinated will be required to provide proof of vaccination. Travelers who have recovered from COVID-19 will be permitted to enter the country so long as they can provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within the last six months.
Unvaccinated travelers will be permitted to enter the country so long as they can provide proof of a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours or a rapid antigen test taken within 48 hours of departure for Italy.
All travelers entering the country are still required to complete the Passenger Locator Form prior to arrival.
So long as travelers can provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, proof of recovery, or proof of vaccination against COVID-19, they will not be required to undergo quarantine. Travelers who cannot provide proof of the above will be required to undergo a five-day quarantine period.
What are the Changes?
