As long as you can prove you are completely vaccinated, you can travel to Italy from the UK without needing to self-isolate.
The NHS Covid Pass, Scotland’s NHS Covid Status Pass, or Northern Ireland’s COVIDCert NI app are all accepted as proof in Italy (as are all EU countries). These can be provided digitally on a phone or printed (as long as it’s dated after November 1, 2021).
You should also:
- Fill out a passenger locator form, and a QR code will be generated. The border police or you may be asked to provide this prior to travel. If you don’t have access to an electronic device, you can fill out a paper form.
- Within 48 hours of entering Italy, take a PCR or LFT/antigen test and present proof of a negative result.
If you haven’t been properly vaccinated, you’ll additionally need to inform the local health authority in the region where you will be staying:
- Travel to your location in Italy by private conveyance exclusively for five days, then repeat the PCR or LFT/antigen test at the end of the five-day self-isolation period.
- If they travel with a fully vaccinated adult and have a negative PCR or LFT/antigen test, children under the age of 18 do not need to self-isolate. Children under the age of five are not required to test.
- More information is available through the Italian embassy in London, or you can use the Italian government’s online questionnaire (both in English).
