On 29 April 2021, the Ministry of Health passed a new ordinance that renewed its current travel-related quarantine and testing requirements for visitors who have been in a List C/D/E country within the 14 days before arriving to Italy. The ordinance covers travel to Italy from 19 April 2021 through 15 May 2021. See the Travel Guidelines tab below for an updated summary of these travel rules.
 

On 22 April 2021, the Council of Ministers issued a decree applying new COVID measures. The decree will go into effect on 26 April 2021 and last until 31 July 2021.
