Travelling in the “Covid era” is quite confusing and yet many of us are craving some vacation. That’s why after months of confusion and staying at home, we are sharing with you our “Can I travel to Italy” advice.
The capital of pizza, pasta, and gelato, for now, is welcoming citizens of only specific countries and those will need to face some provisions in force depending on their Italian destination.
Up to date travel regulations in Italy
- Travelling restrictions, to and from abroad, continues to be based on lists of countries for which different measures are in rule. You can learn about those groups and entry rules here.
- Italy is awaiting travellers from listed countries (list C here) who in the 48h preceding entry undertaken a molecular or antigenic test and proved a negative result.
- However, if you are coming from Brasil, UK, or Northern Irland, then you will have to prove work needs, absolute urgency or health reasons.
Is it safe to travel to Italy? What to expect there?
Italy’s risk assessment is based on a pool of 21 indicators focused on understanding epidemic trends and the risk status of regions. The country is divided into zones based on this risk assessment and safety measures are applied accordingly.
When it comes to specific safety measures:
- Masks must be worn both when outdoors and when indoors in places other than your home.
- Restaurants and bars are open only for Take Away purposes.
- Movements are allowed only for necessary reasons like health, work or other necessities.
