 Important Green Pass Documentation Requirements for Spring 2022 Rome

On November 26, 2021 Italian authorities passed a law requiring all visitors to and residents in Italy - including all university students to possess a COVID-19 Green Pass or equivalent paperwork. The Italian ‘Green Pass’ is a digital and/or paper certificate that is issued to individuals who either have undertaken a full vaccine cycle in the last 9 months or have documented recovery from COVID in the last 6 months.

The last day of the spring 2022 semester is May 3, 2022. Keeping that in mind, proof of natural immunity by a previous COVID-19 infection or by means of an approved vaccination are as follows:

  • Certification of immunity by previous infection: the latest date for this certificate correponds to May 3, 2022 minus 6 months or November 2, 2021. In other words, no infection dating before November 2, 2021 will qualify a student for a Green Pass.
  • Certification of immunity by means of an approved vacciantion: the latest date for this certificate corresponds to May 3, 2022 minus 9 months, or August 2, 2021. In other words, no vaccination dating to before August 2, 2021 will qualify a student for a Green Pass.

Since booster shots are not readily available for tourists and temporary visitors, like our students, all incoming students are required to obtain a COVID booster prior to departure for Rome if the date of their vaccination falls outside of the parameters noted above. Please visit the CDC website for more guidance on obtaining your booster shot. Also, the date of the final vaccine dose must be at least 14 days prior to travel.

The digital Green Pass is only issued to individuals who are residents in Italy and/or who have received their vaccinations in Italy. University of Dallas students will need to carry one of the following equivalent documentation requirements in order to participate in the Rome Program:

Vaccination Card

The CDC white vaccine card will satisfy the documentation requirement. The card should detail the following.
Note for Spring 2022 Romers: for a vaccine to be valid within the 9-month window it must have been administered no earlier than August 2, 2021 and the final dose must be completed no later than December 31, 2021. 

  • The identification data of the holder (first name, last name, date of birth)
  • The vaccine data (name and lot number)
  • The date(s) of vaccination
  • The identification data of who issued the certificate (State, Health Authority, etc.)

Documentation of Recovery from COVID

A student must have recovered from COVID-19, with a positive test taken since November 2, 2021, to meet the 6-month recovery window. A doctor's declaration on clinic/hospital's letterhead should include:

  • Identification data of the holder (first name, last name, date of birth)
  • Information about the holder's previous SARS-CoV-2 infection following a positive test (date of first positive swab) as well as the date of the later negative test 
  • Identifying data of the certificate issuer (State, Health Authority, etc.)

All certifications of recovery, in paper and/or digital format, must be accompanied by a sworn translation. Students may contact one of the preferred Italian Consulate translators, Elisabetta Zaffaroni, at paololisi@sbcglobal.net.
