Italy removes quarantine requirement for UK visitors

The announcement comes on the same day Italy lifts the 5-day quarantine requirement for fully-vaccinated visitors from the UK.

UK travellers still need to:

  • Provide proof of a negative covid test taken 48 hours before arrival
  • Complete an online digital form. This will generate a QR code, which should be presented upon request.
  • Call the COVID-19 helpline for the region they are travelling to within 48 hours of arrival, to inform them of your visit.

Travellers arriving without proof of a negative test and details of where they will self-isolate may be refused entry.

Exemptions from testing and self-isolation may apply to travellers transiting Italy in a private vehicle for less than 36 hours and those travelling for proven reasons of work, health or absolute necessity, for less than 120 hours.
