COVID-19 Pandemic – Update on Entry Requirements for Travels to Italy

L2b Aviation member Giulio Teofilatto, with Studio Pierallini, shares updated COVID-19 Entry Requirements for Traveling to Italy.

As at July 2021, fully vaccinated passengers arriving in Italy are allowed to enter and are exempt from presenting a negative covid-19 test result, but may be required to quarantine. In general, people are considered fully vaccinated if they have received any of the EU approved vaccines (i.e. Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson&Johnson). Italy is open to fully vaccinated travelers arriving from the European Union, Canada, Israel, Japan, the United Kingdom and the United States. Testing and quarantine may be in any case required. Also, every passenger must pre-register electronically before departure and must hold a COVID-19 Green Certificate, being a digital and printable format document attesting satisfaction of one of the following criteria: (i) vaccination against covid-19; (ii) a negative antigen or molecular swab taken within the last 48 hours; (iii) recovery from the infection.

Currently an entry ban is imposed on passengers who have been in or travelled through Brazil in the past 14 days. Exceptions to this ban are: (i) passengers who have resided in Italy since before 13 February 2021; (ii) parents of children younger than 18 years old who reside in Italy; and (iii) military personnel.

An entry ban is also imposed on foreign nationals who have been in or travelled through India, Bangladesh or Sri Lanka in the past 14 days. Exceptions to this ban are: (i) Italian citizens resident in Italy before 29 April 2021; (ii) Italian citizens registered with the Register of Italians Resident Abroad; and (iii) any person authorised by the Ministry of Health.
