TRAVELLING TO ITALY FROM SWEDEN

TRAVELLING TO ITALY FROM SWEDEN

According to the Italian law, from May 16th to August 30th 2021, all travels from the UE+ list of countries (including SWEDEN) are allowed.

In order to enter Italy, however, it is mandatory to:

1) register on the European Passenger Locator Form (dPLF) BEFORE entering Italy. Further information on how to fill the dPLF is available on the website of the Italian Minsitry of Health. Please note that, being a mandatory requirement by law, flying companies have the right to refuse boarding in case the dPLF is missing.

2) possess a EU Digital Covid Certificate (also if issued abroad), i.e. a negative result of a PCR or antigenic test performed within the 48 hours prior to the entry in Italy, OR documents proving vaccination OR documents proving the complete recovery from Covid-19 contagion. A person is considered vaccinated if he/she has completed the dosage cycle (with one of the vaccines approved by the EMA) since 14 days. The documents cited above must be in Italian, French, English or Spanish. Children under 6 years of age are exempted from the mandatory testing.

 

EU Digital Covid Certificates will be available in Sweden from July 1st, to those who have completed the vaccine cycle. Swedish authorities do not plan to issue green passes in case of PCR or antigenic tests. To enter Italy, negative test results issued by authorised clinics will be valid until August 12th. A list of private healthcare centres that perform PCR or antigenic tests in Sweden, can be found at this link: Tests for travel certificates - The Public Health Agency of Sweden

Failing to present one of the above-mentioned certificates implies a mandatory quarantine period of 5 days, at the end of which it is mandatory to take a Covid-19 test. It is also required to inform the contagion prevention department of the local healthcare center in Italy (ASL) about your entry in the country. Beware as well that many flying companies do not accept passengers without a negative test result.

The mandatory test result or the quarantine period (according to the situations) does not apply to the exemptions listed at the Ministry of Healthcare website.

A Q&A section is available for those travelling abroad or coming back to Italy, based on the current Italian legislation. This Q&A section is merely informative, has no legal value and the result does not guarantee the entry in Italy nor in other destination country.

In Italy, local measures of contagion prevention have been taken, for example the classification of the Italian Regions in different colours according to the risk factor (white, yellow, orange and red). To see the current classification, visit the Italian Government website).

Please note that, starting from August 6th 2021, it will be mandatory to exhibit a EU Digital Covid Certificate (one vaccine shot will also be accepted if 15 days have passed) in order to access to certain public events and places, such as restaurants, bars, museums etc. These measures are in place for all people older than 12 years.

Further information about specific rules applied in specific areas in Italy can be found on the FAQ section on the Italian Government website as well as on the website of the Italian Ministry for Foreign Affairs and International Cooperation.

Further restrictions that could complicate the entry regulations to Italy may follow those described above, due to the development of the pandemic emergency.
