As of today, Italy has additional CoV rules that also affect travelers. Those coming from other EU countries need either a negative Corona test, proof of vaccination, or a certificate of recovery. Previously, because of the rampant Omikron variant, everyone – whether vaccinated or recovered – was also required to test. Unvaccinated persons had to spend five days in quarantine.
Since early January, Italy has had mandatory CoV vaccination for people older than 50. Now, unvaccinated people in this age group must pay a fine of 100 euros if caught. From February 15, they will also no longer be able to go to their workplace: the 2G rule will then apply there – i.e. vaccinated or recovered.
There are also changes in shopping. Today, the 3G rule came into force for stores that are not part of the daily needs. So in bookstores, banks, or offices, you need at least a negative test. Supermarkets or pharmacies, for example, are excluded.
