Spain, France, Italy & Greece: Everything Brits need to know about new travel rule changes

Italy

Most recently, the FCDO issued an update on entry requirements clarifying the length of validity of vaccination.

You must present proof that you have been fully vaccinated to enter Italy without quarantine.

The FCDO explains: “At least 14 days must have passed since your second dose of the vaccine (or one dose of a single-dose vaccine) before arrival in Italy. Your date of vaccination must be specified and you need to have had a vaccine approved by the European Medicines Agency.

“Travellers arriving from the UK can enter Italy with a primary vaccination certificate (both doses of a two-dose vaccine or one dose of a one-dose vaccine) which has a validity of 270 days from the date of the last vaccine or a recovery certificate with a validity of 180 days from the date of the first positive test.”

All travellers, aged six and over, must show evidence of a negative PCR test taken within 48 hours before entering Italy or a negative rapid lateral flow test taken within the 24 hours before entering Italy.

Regardless of your vaccination status, anyone arriving in Italy by air, land or by sea may be subject to random COVID testing on arrival.

Adult travellers visiting Italy will need to complete a passenger locator form (EU PLF) to enter or travel through Italy as a visitor.

Accompanied minors can be registered on the form of the accompanying adult in the declaration section.
