COVID-19: Additional entry requirements added for specific countries

9 Oct 20

ITALY

IMPACT – HIGH

The Italian government has announced additional entry requirements for travelers from countries where infections of COVID-19 are on the rise.

Key Points:

  • Foreign nationals must now undergo mandatory swab testing for entry if they are coming from Belgium, the Czech Republic, France, the Netherlands, Spain or the United Kingdom.
  • Mandatory COVID-19 testing is no longer required for Croatia, Greece and Malta.
  • A 14-day mandatory quarantine period is only required for travelers with positive COVID-19 test results.

Additional Information: Besides the changes above, Italy extended existing travel restrictions until Oct. 15. Travelers are reminded that foreign nationals from countries not on Italy’s “black list” may now enter Italy if they are part of an unmarried couple. They must prove they are in a stable, emotional relationship with an Italian, European Union or Schengen Area citizen or Non-EU/Schengen citizen who is legally living in Italy.
