ITALY

IMPACT – HIGH

The Italian government is imposing additional entry requirements for individuals traveling from areas of France, including Paris, deemed to be high-risk for the spread of COVID-19.

Key Points:

  • The new requirements apply to travelers coming from the following areas of France: Auvergne-Rodano-Alps, Corsica, Hauts-de-France, Île-de-France (including Paris), New Aquitaine, Occitania and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur.
  • Any traveler coming from these regions must present negative COVID-19 test results from a test conducted within 72 hours of entry or undergo testing at the airport.
  • A 14-day mandatory quarantine period is also required for these travelers.
  • The requirement is mandatory until Oct. 7.

Additional Information: Italy’s quarantine requirement has been lifted for travelers coming from Bulgaria. Serbian citizens, previously banned, have been cleared for entry into Italy.
