Italy: Reduced COVID-19-Related Entrance Requirements

Last Updated on February 23, 2023

Key Points 

  • All travelers entering Italy will no longer be required to present proof of vaccination, proof of recovery or proof of a negative COVID-19 test result as of 1 June 2022  


The government of Italy updated its COVID-19-related entrance restrictions on 1 June 2022. Under these new measures, travelers will no longer be required to present a European Union (EU) digital COVID-19 vaccination certificate, known in Italy as a Green Pass, or an equivalent COVID-19 certificate to enter the country. These measures will apply to all travelers, including those arriving from a region or country outside of the EU.  

What are the Changes?  

As of 1 June 2022, all travelers are permitted to enter Italy without being required to provide a Green Pass or an equivalent COVID-19 vaccination certificate. Previously, a Green Pass was required for travelers arriving in Italy. Travelers entering the country should ensure that they hold the appropriate immigration authorization prior to arrival, where applicable.
