Italy is the latest European country to suspend all coronavirus-related entry restrictions, enabling people to enter the country without having to show proof of Covid-19 vaccination, proof of recovery, or be tested.
The new rules which went into effect on June 01, bring Italy more in line with other European nations that have lifted pandemic-era travel restrictions, including Sweden, the United Kingdom, Ireland, Iceland, and Croatia.
Italy New Entry Requirements
In response, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation said on its website that, beginning June 1, 2022, a Green Pass or similar certificate would no longer be required to enter Italy, and all COVID-19-related entry restrictions will be removed.
Earlier, to enter the nation, travellers had to prove that they had either gotten a booster dose or had been completely vaccinated, that they had recovered from COVID-19 within six months, or they had to submit a report of a negative Covid-19 test.
According to reports, the amended decision comes a month after Italy stopped asking travellers to provide proof of vaccination while visiting places such as pubs, restaurants, and museums.
Although the EU lifted its transportation mask requirement last month, Italy will continue to enforce it, mandating individuals to wear one on flights and public transit until at least June 15, according to the National Tourist Board.
Face masks will also be necessary for indoor spaces such as music halls, theatres, and other leisure venues.
The updated rules come in the wake of boosting summer travel, while there is no bad season to visit the location, the Italian coast truly shines during the summer months and provides for a terrific holiday site during this period.
