    • Travelers may enter Italy for tourism purposes or without a justified reason but must provide a negative PCR or antigenic test taken within 72 hours of arrival.
    • Regardless of the initial negative test, individuals must undergo a 10-day quarantine upon arrival and will be retested for COVID-19 at the end of the isolation period.
  • Updates for list E countries (rest of world except San Marino and the Vatican):
    • Travelers may only enter the country for approved reasons such as work, study, necessity or urgency.
    • Entry will be granted to individuals that provide a negative PCR or antigenic test taken within 72 hours of arrival.
