Italy previously had rigid COVID-19 restrictions, including green passes. Nevertheless, new rules will drastically alter these circumstances.
Unvaccinated individuals who visited Italy were required to take a COVID-19 test before entering, but on May 31st, this rule was abolished.
People are still required to wear a mask on public transportation and in some indoor settings until June 15th.
What does this mean for travelers?
Formerly, non-vaccinated individuals entering Italy had to show proof of recovery from COVID within the last 180 days or a negative test.
However, the new rule means that travelers can enter Italy without COVID testing regardless of vaccination status.
Italy also dropped the green pass law in virtually all settings on May 1st. Thus, you will no longer need a digital certificate showing recovery from COVID or vaccination to go to bars, restaurants, theaters, concerts, or to use public transportation.
