Key Points

  • Removal of pre-departure COVID-19 entry requirement for travelers who can provide proof of vaccination, evidence of recovery, or a negative COVID-19 test result


On April 1, 2022, the government of Italy lifted the requirement for travelers to provide a pre-departure test result. As a result, all fully vaccinated will be required to provide proof of vaccination. Travelers who have recovered from COVID-19 will be permitted to enter the country so long as they can provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result taken within the last six months.

Unvaccinated travelers will be permitted to enter the country so long as they can provide proof of a negative PCR test result taken within 72 hours or a rapid antigen test was taken within 48 hours of departure for Italy.

All travelers entering the country must complete the Passenger Locator Form before arrival.

So long as travelers can provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result, evidence of recovery, or proof of vaccination against COVID-19, they will not be required to undergo quarantine. Travelers who cannot provide evidence of the above will be required to undergo a five-day quarantine period.

What are the Changes?

The government of Italy updated its COVID-19 related entry requirements on April 1, 2022. Travelers entering the country should ensure that they hold the appropriate authorization before arrival.
