What is the Current Situation in Italy during COVID-19?

One year ago I published my first post on Facebook and I announced the start of the lockdown in Italy in response to the growing pandemic of COVID-19 in the country. It was March 10, 2020. I was scared, confused, worried about the future and most of all overwhelmed by conflicting emotions: I still can’t believe it!

However, as of 11th February 2022, 90% of the Italian Population have completed the regular Vaccination Cycle of the first two doses and so far 6 out of 10 Italians have received their Third Booster dose. These promising statistics further provide a positive sign about the future of the upcoming travel season.

Hundreds of readers every month are still waiting to know the answer to the golden question, is it still possible to travel to Italy without restrictions for Spring and Summer 2022?

In short, the answer is YES! Currently, to Travel to Italy you need:

 

  • Proof that your are Fully Vaccinated (With two doses or one of the Janssen or Johnson&Johnson vaccine)

  • If having recovered from COVID-19, Proof of recovery (180 days from the first positive test)

Is my Italy Spring/Summer 2022 Trip still Going to Happen and are Face Masks still required in Italy?

Italy just made travelling a whole lot easier for travellers meaning that this is the perfect time to start planning your Italian Holiday for 2022. From 1 February, travellers from the EU or UK just need to show either proof of vaccination, recovery or a negative COVID-19 test and quarantine is no longer required.

From Friday 11th February, the Italian Health Minister Roberto Speranza, signed a new ordinance to remove the requirement of wearing Face Masks outdoors however they are still to be worn for all indoor public places.

As for Tours, Experiences and Transport for your upcoming Italian Vacation, by Spring and Summer 2022 the situation should be back to normal for those with the Super Green Pass. This is the new updated required documentation that can be obtained by those who have had 3 doses of the Vaccine or have recently recovered from COVID-19 in the last 6 months.

What’s the Difference between Italy’s Green and Super Green Pass?

Italian Residents and Travellers visiting the country must now carry a ‘Super Green Pass’ to access most indoor places and venues.

As of January 10th, this new type of Pass came into place and can be obtained by those who either currently have three doses of the Vaccine or have recently recovered from COVID-19 within the last 6 months, it cannot be obtained with a negative test result.

How do I Obtain the Super Green Pass?

The Super Green Pass validity will be reduced to six months from the time of the most recent vaccination. Those with recovery certificates will continue to be valid for six months from the validity start date on the certificate.
