The 14-day quarantine is no longer mandatory for passengers coming from France. However, travelers must undergo a PCR or antigen screening test less than 48 hours before departure.
A mandatory “location” form
Once on Italian territory, you will have to report to the regional health authorities of the place and indicate where you are spending your holidays.
The Italian authorities are warning this Monday, May 31 and renewing the following instructions:
- present the green certification showing that you have undergone a molecular or antigenic sample taken within 48 hours before entering Italy with negative results
- Complete the passenger tracking form – digital tracking form – before entering Italy
- communicate your entry to the prevention service of the competent health authority in the region (on this page: COVID-19 toll-free numbers and regional information)
Crossing the border with only a negative Coronavirus test could get you in trouble. The authorities can prevent you from entering if you do not present this “passenger tracking form”, the Italian Ministry explains on its website.
You can find all the steps to obtain this certificate of location, and complete it online HERE
Please note, failure to comply with the green certification bearing the negative result of the swab entails the following obligations:
- medical isolation for ten days at the address indicated in the digital tracking form
- swab at the end of the ten day isolation.
The provisions remain in force until July 30, 2021. Italy is still divided, until July 31 at least, into different color zones (red, orange, yellow and white) depending on the health situation.
To date, all regions of the territory are classified in the yellow zone.
All shops are open, respecting social distancing. Bars and restaurants are also open outdoors, indoors from June 1, but only until 6 p.m.
A curfew remains in effect at least until July 31, from 11 p.m. to 5 a.m., throughout the country, and wearing a mask indoors and outdoors remains mandatory.
Back in France
France requires all travelers, including French, entering the national territory from a country in the European area (including Italy) a negative PCR test dating less than 72 hours. Only children under 11 are exempt. A sworn statement must also be completed before the return journey, available on the website of the Ministry of the Interior.
To get tested in Italy, foreign travelers can go to authorized private laboratories, a non-exhaustive list of which is available HERE on the website of the Italian Ministry of Health.
