On May 16, Italy abolished an entry ban on vaccinated travellers from the Schengen Area and European Union Member States as well as from the United Kingdom and Israel. Yet, Italy kept in place the five-day quarantine requirement and testing against COVID-19 in place for travellers from these countries.

The decision followed a warning of the Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi, who said that Italy would put into use its national green pass without waiting for the EU COVID-19 travel certificate.

Travellers from the United States and other non-European countries that are considered low risk, like Japan, Canada, Australia and Singapore, can also enter the country for non-essential purposes, but they still need both a Coronavirus test and a ten-day quarantine.

However, the country has announced its plans to permit travellers from the United States, Canada, and Japan to enter without being subject to any entry restrictions if they are fully vaccinated against the virus.
