Italy Drops COVID Entry Rules for Travelers

The Italian Ministry of Health announced earlier this week the lifting of all COVID-19 travel restrictions starting from June 1, 2022.

“The ordinance of the Minister of Health which provides for the Green Certification Covid-19 (green pass) to enter Italy expires on May 31. The measure will not be extended,” the Ministry wrote on its official website on Monday.

According to reports, all travelers regardless of origin will not be required to present a vaccination, recovery, or test certificate upon arrival following a government conclusion that the virus no longer causes serious health implications.

The Italian government has also dropped the mask requirement in early May, and wearing a face mask when accessing restaurants, bars, museums, and other public places and events is no longer required.

Meanwhile, the World Health Organization (WHO) data reported that Italy has had 130,994 new COVID infection cases in the last seven days.
