Italy bans unvaccinated from public transit, hotels, outdoor dining.

Italy on Monday barred the unvaccinated from a host of everyday activities, including hotels, restaurants and even public transportation unless able to prove they recently recovered from infection.

The strict rules require those who want to enter the venues or use public transportation to show their so-called Super Green Pass to certify that they have been vaccinated against the virus.

  • Until 31 March 2022, you’ll need an EU digital COVID-19 certificate (Super Green Pass), issued after full vaccination or recovering from COVID-19, to access most venues and forms of transport. It is also mandatory to wear masks at all outdoor and indoor public areas and to wear FFP2 masks in cinemas, theatres, museums, stadia and on all public transportation. See the Italian Green Certificate information site (Italian) and the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs for more information.
  • Before you travel to Italy, you should complete a digital passenger locator form. If you’re unable to access and fill in the online form, you will need to complete a self-declaration form. You must provide this to your airline/transport provider or to the border police if you’re stopped for checks. You’re required to produce a negative COVID-19 test (PCR or antigen) taken 48 to 72 hours before arriving, depending on where you are travelling from.
  • A five-day home quarantine requirement is in force for unvaccinated travellers arriving from any European Union country. If entering Italy from a European Union country, all travellers (including those who are vaccinated) will be required to undergo a COVID test before departure.

Regional and local authorities in Italy are empowered to adjust these measures where required, which may occur at short notice. You are strongly advised to consult the websites for the regions in which you are travelling for the latest information.
