Italy recently announced the phasing out of its COVID-19 restrictions and became the latest European country to take measures to contain the pandemic.

According to reports, the digital green pass will no longer be required for access to public transport or restaurants from May 1st. Passports are currently being issued to people who have contracted and recovered from COVID-19 or who have been fully vaccinated.

Regarding this, the Italian Prime Minister said at the press conference that he had made decisions based on science and was taking basic steps towards reopening. However, authorities will closely monitor the epidemic curve and will be ready to adjust all of their systems as the epidemic curve changes and introduce more comprehensive measures if necessary, he said.

Italy is also said to be ready to end the state of emergency on March 31 instead of destroying the digital green passport.

The decision to cap COVID-related restrictions comes weeks after Italy announced a reduction in pre-test requirements for vaccinated travelers to make it easier for them to enter the country by showing proof they’re getting a booster shot to have or are fully vaccinated indoors. Nine months.

Unvaccinated persons can also enter the country if they can show a negative COVID-19 PCR test report drawn up within 72 hours before travel, or if they have survived COVID-19 within six months, or can show a negative rapid test within 48 hours after the trip.

Please also note that all travelers are always required to fill out a passenger locator form before arrival in the country.
