The Italian government has eased its COVID-19 entry requirements for travelers coming from non-European countries.

Key Points:

    • Proof of recovery from COVID-19 within six months of travel.
    • A negative PCR test taken within 72 hours before arrival or a negative antigen test taken within 48 hours before arrival.
  • Travelers will be required to quarantine for five days upon arrival and take an additional COVID-19 test if they cannot meet one of the aforementioned requirements.
