  • a negative COVID-19 antigen or molecular test, issued within 48 hours before arrival.

Travelling inside Italy

As of September 1, 2021, Italian Authorities have established the mandatory requirement of a EU Digital Covid Certificate (“Green Pass”), for any person aged 12 and above wishing to board airplanes, ships and ferries for inter-regional transportation, high speed trains, buses for inter-regional transportation and chartered buses with driver.

The certificate must show proof of either having received one dose of vaccine; or of a negative result of a molecular or antigenic test carried out in the previous 48 hours; or of having recovered from Covid-19 in the previous 6 months. Please note that a certificate proving that you have received the first dose of a two-dose vaccine (meaning that you are waiting for the second dose) will not be enough to enter Italy from abroad. Such a certificate is valid only once in Italy.
