European / List C Travel Rules for Entry Into Italy

Vaccination (or 5 day ROM), negative test, and PLF required to enter Italy

On 15 December 2021, the Ministry of Health published a new ordinance significantly changing travel requirements for all travelers entering Italy who arrive from or travelled through a List C country (including EU countries). Beginning 16 December 2021 until 31 January 2022, anyone entering Italy who was in a List C country at any time during the 14 days prior to entering Italy must:

1) Anyone over the age of 6 must posses a negative PCR COVID-19 test from within the previous 48 hours or negative antigenic test from within the previous 24 hours (Note: this applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers); and

2) Complete the passenger locator form; and

3) Possess proof of vaccination/recovery*

*Travelers who are not vaccinated/recovered can Italy enter but must self-isolate for five days upon arrival.

Italy will conduct random testing of arrivals. Anyone who tests positive to a random test will quarantine for 10 (ten) days.

Note: A digital (QR Code) “green pass” may no longer be accepted to enter the above types of facilities or events.  At the moment, there is not an electronic way for the QR to indicate vaccinated, recovered, or exempt.

We recommend persons 12 and over be prepared to provide proof of vaccination (such as a CDC vaccination card) or proof of recovery from COVID-19 if they wish to enter the above facilities or events.

An original green pass will be required across Italy (regardless of regional color) from 6 December until  31 January to use the following facilities:

  • Hotels
  • changing and showers rooms,
  • interregional trains
  • local and regional public transportation  

Differences between the “super green pass” and the original green pass:
There are now two types of green passes in Italy. The original “green pass,” which has been in place throughout Europe for several months, and the new “super green pass.”

                What is a super green pass?

Currently, you are considered to have a “super green pass” if you have proof that you meet one of the following criteria:

  • you have completed the vaccination cycle or received a booster within:
    • the last nine months (rule valid through 31 January 2022); or
    • the last six months (rule starts 1 February 2022)
  • you have recovered from COVID-19 within the last six months.

* Note, super green pass rules do not apply to children 11 years old and younger.

What is the original green pass?

The original green pass with an electronic QR Code can be obtained if you meet one of the following criteria

  • You have completed the vaccination cycle or a booster within:
    • the last nine months (rule valid through 31 January 2022); or
    • the last six months (rule starts 1 February 2022)
  • You have recovered from COVID-19 within the last 6 months
  • You have a negative COVID-19 test (antigen tests must have been taken within the last 48 hours and PCR tests must have been taken with in the last within the last 72 hours); or
  • 15 days have passed since receiving the first dose of vaccine in a two dose vaccine cycle (and it will last until the date scheduled for the second dose).

* Note, green pass rules do not apply to children 11 years old and younger.

Vaccine validation:

Through 31 January 2022: For both the Super Green Pass and the Original Green pass, vaccinations are valid from either 1) nine months after the second dose or 2) nine months after a booster, whichever is later.

Starting 1 February 2022: For both the Super Green Pass and the Original Green pass, vaccinations are valid from either 1) six months after the second dose or 2) six months after a booster, whichever is later.
