IMPORTANT DEVELOPMENT FOR RESIDENTS OF CANADA, JAPAN AND THE UNITED STATES SEEKING ENTRY INTO ITALY FOR ANY LAWFUL PURPOSE (including for tourism/leisure)
The Ordinance signed into law today by Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza contains a provision in Article 6 (hyperlinked below) which provides that Canada, Japan and the United States will be moved from List E to List D effective Sunday, May 16.
THIS MEANS THAT SUCH PERSONS WILL BE ALLOWED ENTRY INTO ITALY FOR ANY LAWFUL PURPOSE, INCLUDING TOURISM AND LEISURE TRAVEL, but subject to the entry conditions, which AT THE MOMENT require a negative molecular OR antigenic test performed no more than 48 hours beforehand, 10 DAYS OF SELF-ISOLATION, and a second molecular OR antigenic test at the conclusion of the period of self-isolation. Proof of vaccination or recovery from the virus are NOT for the present recognized conditions for entry into Italy (but this may change soon).
THE 10-DAY PERIOD OF SELF-ISOLATION IS WAIVED FOR THOSE ARRIVING IN ITALY ON "COVID-TESTED" FLIGHTS.
THIS MEANS THAT CANADIANS, JAPANESE AND AMERICANS WILL BE ALLOWED ENTRY INTO ITALY STARTING THIS SUNDAY, WITHOUT THE NEED TO SELF-ISOLATE FOR 10 DAYS, PROVIDED THEY ENTER ITALY ON A "COVID-TESTED" FLIGHT.
WELCOME BACK TO ITALY!!!!!
