Italy announced today that passengers arriving from the UK will have to stay in quarantine again, while many other countries will be able to enter freely if they possess the antiCOVID-19 health passport.
Mandatory quarantine for passengers coming from the UK will take effect on Monday 21 June, the Ministry of Health stressed.
“I have signed a new order that allows entry from the countries of the European Union and the US, Canada and Japan with a green certificate”, announced the Italian Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza on Facebook, reports ATSh.
“The green certificate is a health certificate that certifies the vaccination, treatment or negativity of an antiCovid-19 test,” the minister announced.
Speranza also clarified that travelers from the UK, a country where the Delta variant is prevalent, will have to stay in a five-day quarantine and undergo an antiCovid test.
Italy also extended the ban on entry into national territory for travelers coming from India, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka.
Italy has so far administered more than 44 million doses of the antiCOVID-19 vaccine.
