Italy Drops All Travel Requirements as of June 1

All of Italy’s COVID-related travel restrictions expired yesterday, May 31. reports that, according to the Italian Ministry of Health, the current requirements would not be extended.

Previously, travelers needed to show their E.U. Digital COVID Certificate or, for non-European Union citizens, an equivalent COVID-19 certification issued by their country's health authorities, certifying one of the following: Completed vaccination cycle with a vaccine recognized by the European Medicines Agency; full recovery from COVID-19; or a negative molecular or antigenic test. Additionally, travelers will no longer need to complete a Passenger Locator Form.

This means, all travelers—regardless of their country of origin—will no longer need to show proof of vaccination, recent recovery or a negative test when arriving in Italy.

According to, a mask mandate is set to remain in force until at least June 15. Though the E.U.-wide mask requirement on flights lifted in May, airports and airlines flying to and from Italy may still require passengers to wear masks until that date. FFP2 masks are also still required on ships and ferries, trains, buses, local transportation and indoor sports and performances.

Masks are not required outdoors or in shops and workspaces.
