UPDATE ON THE ENTRY RULES IN ITALY FOLLOWING THE PUBLICATION  OF THE ORDER OF THE MINISTER OF HEALTH OF 1 JULY 2020

Based on the criteria and conditions set out in the recommendation adopted by the Council of Europe, the Minister of Health published the Ordinance of 1 July 2020, which will be in force until 14 July, on the new travel rules to Italy for both Italian citizens abroad and foreign citizens.

The main points of the Ordinance are highlighted below:

 

ITALIAN AND EUROPEAN UNION CITIZENS

  • from 1 July, Italian citizens residing abroad (and therefore also those residing in Hong Kong and Macao) and their family members, irrespective of their nationality, are allowed to enter Italy without a justified reason. Spouses, partners, children up to 21 years of age, cohabiting parents, other dependent family members for disability reasons, are all considered cohabiting family members. Those who come from countries other than the EU, the Schengen area, United Kingdom and European micro-states, however, will have to observe the 14-day period of quarantine in self-isolation.
     
  • from 1 July all citizens of the European Union (and therefore also those residing in Hong Kong and Macao), foreigners residing in a European Union country and their cohabiting family members of all nationalities are allowed to enter Italy without a justified reason.

 

CITIZENS OF THE PEOPLE'S REPUBLIC OF CHINA AND OTHER FOREIGN COUNTRIES RESIDING IN HONG KONG AND MACAO

  • from 1 July all foreign students are allowed to enter Italy, regardless of their nationality or origin, for justified reasons of study.
     
  • Entry in Italy is also permitted for reasons of work, health or absolute necessity, or to return home or to one's place of residence.
     
  • Traveling to Italy for any other reasons is NOT allowed.

 

MANDATORY QUARANTINE

Those from countries other than the EU, Schengen, the United Kingdom and European micro-states must observe the 14-day period of fiduciary isolation.

Therefore, the quarantine obligation for those who enter Italy from Hong Kong and Macao remains in force.
