Italian authorities have extended restrictions on travel from Brazil and the United Kingdom and tightened rules on travel from Japan. The changes will remain in effect until at least April 6.

Key Points:

  • Brazil. Brazil remains on List E. This means that most air travel from Brazil is suspended, though exemptions introduced last month will remain in place. Additional exemptions are now available to those traveling from Brazil in order to reach the domicile, home or residence of their minor children and to those whose entry is authorized by the Italian Ministry of Health, for reasons of necessity, regardless of their residence.
  • United Kingdom. The United Kingdom also remains on List E. Travel from the United Kingdom is only permitted for people with registered residence in Italy from before Dec. 23, 2020, or who can demonstrate proven reasons of necessity to return to Italy.
  • Japan. Officials recently moved Japan from List D to List E, meaning travel from Japan is also only permitted for essential reasons, such as work, health, study, absolute urgency or to return to own home, domicile or residency.
  • Other travel restrictions. All other current travel restrictions will remain in place until at least April 6.

Additional Information: Italy has also extended “COVID tested” flights to Italy from the United States. Travel from the United States remains restricted, but those who are permitted to travel to Italy can avoid quarantine upon arrival by taking a “COVID tested” flight and presenting results of a negative COVID-19 test taken no more than 48 hours before departure. Authorities are looking to expand “COVID tested” flights to arrivals from other countries, but for now they are only available for those traveling to Italy from select airports in the U.S. (Atlanta, Newark and New York) and Germany (Frankfurt and Munich).

Analysis & Comments: Business travelers should expect travel to Italy from Brazil, Japan and the United Kingdom to be strictly limited until at least April 6. The response to the COVID-19 pandemic continues to develop, and Deloitte will provide additional updates as information becomes available.
