Italy Updates COVID-19 Entry Requirements for Travelers

Effective May 1, travelers will no longer have to complete a Passenger Locator Form to enter Italy. Still, the existing entry restrictions will remain in place until at least May 31.

What to Expect
  • Travelers from EU and non-EU countries must show one of the following certificates to enter Italy: vaccination certificate, certificate of recovery from COVID-19, or a negative COVID-19 test result.
    • Vaccination Certificates: This applies to travelers who have received an approved vaccine final dose or booster within the last 270 days.
    • Certificate of Recovery: This applies to travelers who have recovered from COVID-19 in the last 180 days.
    • Negative Test Results: PCR tests must be conducted within 72 hours before arrival, and rapid antigen tests performed within 48 hours.
  • Travelers who can not provide proof of vaccination, recovery, or negative test results will have to quarantine for five days upon arrival in Italy and then test at the end of the quarantine.

At the same time, the Italian government has lifted the requirement to present a COVID-19 Green Health Pass to enter hotels, museums, and other venues. Green Health Passes will be required to access hospitals and care facilities.
