Re-Open EU: Italy

July 14, 2021

The following is a notice from Re-Open EU, an official website of the European Union. The notice summarizes the rules for entering Italy from European Union Members States and Schengen Associated countries.

Italy is accepting EU Digital COVID certificates (EUDCC). If you are in possession of an EUDCC, you can enter Italy without further restriction provided your EUDCC matches any of the following conditions.

  1. Proof of vaccination. Valid 14 days after the end of the prescribed vaccination cycle.
  2. Proof of recovery from COVID-19. Proof is valid up to 6 months following positive testing.
  3. Negative result from a PCR or Rapid Antigen COVID-19 test. Valid for 48 hours.
Children aged six or under are exempt from testing and quarantine requirements.

Entering Italy without a valid EUDCC

Transit through a List C Country during the 14 days proceeding entrance to Italy is permitted without need to specify the reason for travel. If you cannot provide a vaccination certificate or certificate of recovery from COVID-19, you will be subject to a pre-departure negative COVID-19 test, administered no greater than 48 hours prior to arrival to Italy (with exemption of travelers under the age of 6).

This is not legal advice. Please check further requirements in place for your region.
