The Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, has signed an ordinance allowing entry from the countries of the European Union and the Shengen Area, as well as from Great Britain and Israel, with a negative swab test, without compulsory quarantine. Travellers are still required to produce on arrival a negative molecular or antigen test, taken in the 48 hours prior to arrival in Italy.

However, the restrictions against Brazil have been extended until 30 July 2021.

The Minister has also ordered the extension of trials of ‘Covid-tested’ flights, already in operation at Rome and Milan airports, to Venice and Naples. Passengers on Covid-tested flights must take a molecular or antigen test before departure and, if the result is negative, upon arrival at their destination they are authorised to enter and travel in Italy without having to comply with health surveillance and fiduciary isolation, where otherwise required.

Until now, Covid-tested flights only covered routes between the United States and Italy but the new ordinance includes departures from Canada, Japan and the United Arab Emirates.

The ordinances are effective from 16 May 2021 to 31 July 2021.
