Start Day Positive

The world is tired of the Сoronavirus and wants to return to full life. As you know, Italy is a tourist country and in many respects the well-being of Italians depends on the comfort of tourists. It is for this reason that, having experienced serious problems with the coronavirus at the beginning of the pandemic, the Italian government did everything possible to normalize the situation. As of August 2021, almost 70 percent of the population has been vaccinated in Italy. And this is without taking into account those who have natural immunity.

 

Already this summer, relying on these data, Italy opened its borders. For those entering Italy, sanitary and epidemiological restrictions apply, which differ depending on the country of arrival.

Before entering Italy, from any country and for any reason, you must complete the European Digital Passenger Locator Form.

Citizens and residents of the EU, Schengen countries and Israel are allowed in Italy without mandatory quarantine, provided that they:

1. Complete the Passenger Locator Form before entering Italy

2. Present upon entry the EU digital COVID certificate issued by the competent authorities of their country. The certificate is valid in all EU and Schengen countries.

The EU COVID digital certificate is digital proof that a person:

validated against COVID-19 at least 14 days ago
got a negative test result
recovered from COVID-19
You can save a digital document to your mobile device.

   Alternatively, citizens can request a paper version. Both options will have a QR code containing basic information and an electronic signature to ensure the authenticity of the certificate.

More information is available on the official website for the COVID digital certificate

   In addition, COVID-19 certificates are required to enter and exit the red or orange zones (see later in the text) and may be required to participate in public events (fairs, concerts, sporting events, religious or civic celebrations).

From August 6, 2021, persons over 12 years of age must present a digital green COVID-19 certificate to access the following establishments and events:

  • Restaurants, bars, ice cream parlours, pastry shops for indoor table service
  • Performances for the public, outdoor and indoor sports events
  • Museums and cultural institutions, exhibitions
  • Pools and gyms
  • Private parties such as weddings
  • Rural festivals and fairs
  • Conferences and congresses
  • Baths and wellness centres
  • Gambling halls, bookmakers, bingo halls and casinos

Entry and transit in Italy is prohibited for persons:

who have visited or transited Brazil in the previous fourteen days (see exceptions)
who are arriving from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka or have visited these countries in the previous fourteen days

The Ministry of Health has connected a reference number, where citizens can ask questions about the new coronavirus. The help desk works around the clock all days.
Passengers can call the Ministry of Health at the following numbers:

In Italy toll-free number 1500
from abroad call +39 0232008345 – +39 0283905385
