LEISURE & OFFICIAL TRAVEL
Travel through Austria to Italy is limited due to the prevalence of the circulating COVID Variant of Concern(VOC).  See the current version of the Aviano Flow Chart for information on travel requirements for travelers coming from or traveling through Austria.  Travel from Brazil continues to be limited with a ban on flights arriving in Italy until 5 March. 

Travelers having transited through(including connecting flights) or staying in multiple countries in the last 14 days must comply with the Italian Law and ITAF policies regarding restrictions applicable to ALL countries visited or transited through.  If transiting through both List C and E countries, all applicable requirements for both List C and E apply. (As illustrated in the Travel Flow Diagram)

Travelers bound for the US who are over the age of 2 will be required to obtain a negative COVID-19 test 72 hours prior to arriving beginning 26 Jan 2021 to travel to the US per CDC policy(please note air carriers may have more strict guidance for testing ages and timelines).  Vaccination status is not considered for this guidance. If travelers have had a positive viral test in the past 3 months, and have met the criteria to end isolation, they may travel instead with documentation of their positive viral test results and a letter from their healthcare provider or a public health official that states they have been cleared for travel. For assistance in determining ROM and/or testing requirements for your US destination please refer to https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/travel-planner/index.html and be sure to contact your air carrier for airport and flight testing policies and procedures.  Additionally you may utilize the CDC travel recommendation site (https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/travelers/map-and-travel-notices.html) for information about the CDC Risk Tier for your travel destination and origin.  Note: Legal requirements of ROM vary within the US states and cities. 

ITALIAN LEISURE & OFFICIAL TRAVEL UPDATE:
The DPCM provisions prohibiting interregional travel even when in yellow have been extended until 27 March.  Travel is limited to the region in which you reside with exception for proven needs for travel outside of your region.  We will continue to provide regional updates to the color coding as they are released.  Currently Friuli and Veneto are Yellow+. Additionally, businesses operating amateur skiing resorts are further prohibited from opening until at least 5 March.
