COVID-19: Extended regulations for entry in the country

13 Aug 20

ITALY

IMPACT – HIGH

Italy has extended its existing temporary bans and limitations on travel until Sept. 7 to mitigate the spread of COVID-19.

Key Points:

  • Entry from these countries is still banned: Algeria, Montenegro, Morocco and Serbia.
  • Direct and indirect flights to and from these countries are still suspended.
  • The ban does not apply to residents of Italy who are nationals of European Union/Schengen Area countries or Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, the United Kingdom or the Vatican, provided they were registered as Italian residents before July 9.
  • Most travel from a non-EU country, except from banned countries, is allowed only in case of urgent work or health-related reasons. However, residents from the following countries do not need to prove such reasons to enter Italy: Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay.
  • Anyone traveling from Bulgaria or Romania must complete a 14-day mandatory quarantine when entering Italy.
  • All travelers to Italy are required to fill out, sign and submit a self-declaration form to the air carrier or police authorities.

Background: Italy lifted some travel restrictions the first week of July, but is implementing the new temporary ban as a precautionary measure.
