Italy Issues New Travel Guidance through October

Following the EU’s recommendation to reinstate travel restrictions for travelers from the US and Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Macedonia, and Montenegro, the Italian government has issued new guidance for travelers.

As of August 31 through October 25, the following measures are applied:

  • People from Countries on list D can enter Italy with a vaccination certificate, a negative test carried out in the previous 72 hours (48 hours in case of entry from the UK), and Passenger Locator Form. Travelers who cannot provide the required documentation will have to quarantine for 5 days and take a test after isolation.
  • People from Canada, Israel, Japan, and the United States of America can enter Italy with a ‘green pass’ (or a certificate issued by local health authorities following a vaccination validated by the European Medicines Agency (EMA)), a negative test carried out in the previous 72 hours and Passenger Locator Form.
  • Entry from India, Bangladesh, and Sri Lanka is allowed only for study purposes or to return to a personal residence (or one belonging to a partner or minor children), or by authorization of the Ministry of Health. Travelers will need to present a negative COVID-19 test carried out 72 hours before entry; test on arrival at the airport; 10-day isolation and test at the end of the isolation period.
  • Entry from Brazil is permitted for study purposes only. Students will need to provide negative test results taken within 72 hours before entry, test on arrival, and must complete a 10-day quarantine, and test at the end of the isolation period, also for study purposes.
