COVID-19: Restrictions on travel from Austria, Israel, UK eased; testing, quarantine measures to remain

9 Apr 21

ITALY

Italian authorities have eased restrictions on travel from Austria, Israel and the United Kingdom and implemented new quarantine procedures for travel from within the European Union.

Key Points:

  • Authorities have moved Austria, Israel and the United Kingdom to “List C,” meaning travel is permitted for non-essential reasons, but travelers must satisfy testing and quarantine requirements.
  • Under procedures implemented last week, travelers from List C countries must take a COVID-19 molecular or antigenic test within the 48 hours before arriving in Italy and must quarantine in Italy for five days upon arrival in Italy, regardless of the test result. A second molecular or antigenic test must be taken at the end of the five-day quarantine.
  • Travelers from the Tyrol region of Austria must quarantine for 14 days rather than five.
  • The quarantine measures were first implemented as a way to mitigate the spread of the COVID-19 over the Easter holiday period; however, authorities extended them this week until at least April 30.
  • The current restrictions on travel from Brazil will also remain in place until at least April 30.

Analysis & Comments: While authorities have eased restrictions on travel from Austria, Israel and the United Kingdom, testing and quarantine requirements from these and other “List C” countries will remain in place at least until the end of the month. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
