General Covid-19 information
As of the first of May 2022 most Covid restrictions have been lifted. The following restrictions are still in place:
Citizens and residents of EU countries and NON EU countries can enter Italy without the obligation of quarantine, provided that:
They present the EU Digital COVID Certificate on arrival. Non-EU citizens can present a COVID-19 Green Certificate, in paper or digital form, issued by the health authorities of their home country, certifying negativity to the virus, successful recovery or vaccination recognized by the European Medicines Agency (EMA).
An EU Digital COVID Certificate is digital proof that a person:
- has been vaccinated against COVID-19 at least 14 days beforehand
- obtained a negative test result
- recovered from COVID-19
The digital version can be saved on a mobile device. Citizens can also request a printed version. Both versions will have a QR code containing essential information and a digital signature ensuring their authenticity.
Travellers who, on entering Italy, do not present this documentation may nevertheless enter the country but must undergo fiduciary isolation for 5 days and inform the Prevention Department of the competent Local Health Authority. After 5 days of isolation, they must perform an additional molecular or antigen test.
Children under the age of 6 are not obliged to present proof of a negative result for molecular or antigen tests on entry into Italy, but must comply with the isolation obligation when required.

In hospitals, pharmacies and when at the doctors masks are obliged where in hospitals also the COVID-19 Green Certificate will be asked to present.
