TRAVELLING TO ITALY FROM THE UK - 18 JUNE UPDATE

From 21 June to 30 July 2021, anyone entering Italy having been in the UK (including Gibraltar, the Isle of Man, the Channel Islands and British military bases in Cyprus) in the previous 14 days must:

  • Present a negative molecular or antigen test (the so-called "Covid-19 green certificate") taken in the 48 hours preceding entry into Italy (art. 2 of the Ordinance of 14 May 2021). Please note that standard NHS tests cannot be used for travelling abroad: Covid tests for travel clearance must be done through private laboratories or pharmacies. Children under six years are exempt from the requirement to take a test before entering Italy (art. 6, section 2, of the Ordinance of 18 June 2021);
  • If entering Italy having been in the UK in the preceding 14 days, quarantine for 5 days at their home or the place where they are staying, and notify the local health centre of their arrival in Italy (art. 5 of the Ordinance of 18 June 2021);
  • Take another molecular or antigen test at the end of the 5 days of quarantine (art. 5, Ordinance of 18 June 2021).
