Covid Green Pass: from mid-May no more quarantine to travel to Italy.
In advance of the European Green Pass for travel, which will be introduced in mid-June, Italy will launch its own national green certificate.
The Italian Green Pass will come into force from the second half of May.
The Italian Government is working to allow Italian tourism to return to being a strong sector as it was before the pandemic.
“The pandemic forced us to close, but Italy is ready to welcome the world back. There will be clear and simple rules to ensure that tourists can come to us safely” said the Prime Minister Mario Draghi.
Covid Green Pass: from mid-May no more quarantine to travel to Italy
The Green Pass is a nominative certification that must certify for each individual European citizen or EU tourist one of the following conditions:
- the vaccination (with one of the vaccines currently admitted by the EMA: Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca and Johnson & Johnson)
- the carrying out of a negative swab carried out in the previous 48 hours
- the healing from Covid for no more than six months
Vaccination and recovery certificates are valid for six months. They can be in paper or digital format.
The certification will also be necessary to participate in sporting events or shows in which significant numbers of spectators are expected and in which distancing cannot be guaranteed.
This certificate could also be extended to citizens of non-EU countries, such as the United States or Israel, vaccinated with drugs recognized in Europe.
On the other hand, tourists from countries included in the black list will be excluded due to the high number of infections.
