Travelling to and from Italy

 The rules on travelling to Italy remain unchanged under the latest emergency decree.

Unrestricted travel is still permitted from most EU countries as well as Schengen zone countries.

Travellers are still divided into six categories with different rules applicable, depending on the country they are travelling from. As many other rules were tightened as cases have risen sharply in Italy recently, it looks unlikely that existing travel restrictions will be eased soon.
Travellers from several other European countries including the UK are required to take a test on or before arrival in Italy.

Travellers can either get tested before their journey - both the PCR nasal swab and the finger-prick tests are accepted, so long as they're carried out no more than 72 hours before your journey - or within 48 hours of arriving.

Local travel rules and testing procedures can also vary by region.
Rules are subject to change at any time in any of these 20 regions, as well as in Italian cities under municipal rules. For this reason you should check the rules with the local authorities in your city and region, and in any city or region you plan to visit.
