As of Wednesday 1 June 2022 Italy is scrapping all of its Covid-19 entry requirements for international arrivals.

Italy’s health ministry has announce that requirements to produce either a coronavirus vaccination, proof of a recent recovery from the virus or negative test tesult is not being extended when it runs out today (Tuesday 31 May).

Previously (1 May) it abandoned the requirement for a passenger locator form.

Mask mandates

This leaves only mask rules remaining, and these will be lifted on 15 June unless there is news of a return of the virus. For now, a mask may stll be required in some settings in Italy, by everyone over 6 years old (unless an exemption applies). That includes airports and airlines.

However, many Italians are still wearing masks and it is certainly worth keeping one handy when in a public area, such as shops, taxis and estate agent offices.
