The rules of traveling to Italy have been simplified for the immigrants who come from the EU and Schengen zone. The travelers have to show one of these three proofs:
- Proof of vaccination
- Proof of recovery
- Proof of negative COVID-19 test
The COVID-19 test has to be taken 24 hours before the arrival to the country. The immigrants can also go for a PCR test 48 hours before arriving to the country. Only a certified provide has to take the tests. Italy does not allow home test kits.
Previously, immigrants who do not have any of these proofs, have to go for a 5-day quarantine, but this rule has also been lifted. People who are coming to or going from Italy have to wear an FF2 mask while they are inside the flight. All these rules will be reviewed again on March 15, 2022.
- The COVID-19 test has to be taken 24 hours before arrival
- The PCR test has to be taken 48 hours before arrival
- No quarantine for the people who are unable to produce proofs related to COVID-19.
About Super Green Pass
A Super Green Pass allows the Italians and the immigrants to go to any place in Italy. On January 10, 2022, a new pass was launched, which included proof of vaccination. This proof includes either recovery from COVID-19 with six months or proof of vaccination, which should be two doses.
The pass can be used in theaters, cinemas, and stadiums. The card is not given to unvaccinated individuals. People with this card are also allowed to have parties, eat in restaurants, and visit any public place.
Eligibility criteria for Super Green Pass
Immigrants from the EU have to produce an EU Digital COVID certificate. The USA, Australia, Canada, and the UK are on List D in Italy. This list includes those countries which have medium risk. People migrating from the UK can use NHS COVID-19 Travel Pass instead of Super Green Pass. The NHS COVID-19 Travel Pass will be valid till the time the QR code is readable.
