 Recently Updated EU-Italian Entry and Exit Requirements (effective April 8, 2022)

Travelers from the United States may enter Italy if they are asymptomatic AND present one of the following:

  • An Anti-COVID-19 vaccination certificate for an European Medicines Agency (EMA) recognized vaccine. At present, EMA recognizes the following vaccines: Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna, Johnson and Johnson, AstraZeneca and Novavax. The date of the last dose of the primary vaccination series must be at least 14 days prior to travel and no more than 270 days before arrival unless a booster shot was administered. Travelers vaccinated in the United States can prove this via the "white card" bearing the CDC logo.
  • A medical certificate confirming recovery from COVID valid for six months from recovery. 
  • A negative molecular PCR test result carried out within 72 hours of arrival or a rapid antigen test result carried out within 48 hours of arrival.
  • Passengers unable to present a valid vaccination, recovery certificate or negative test result will have to self-isolate on arrival for five days and undergo a molecular PCR or rapid antigen test at the end of their isolation.

The approved languages for the above certificate are Italian, English, Spanish and French. Certificates can be in digital or paper format. For additional information on travel to and from Italy, please see the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs' website.

Travelers entering Italy may be subject to random swab tests. Individuals who test positive will need to self-isolate between 7-21 days, depending on the specifics of the case. The self-isolation will occur either in a COVID hotel or at private accomodations at the traveler's own expense, as decided by Italian health authorities. 

For further information and regular updates about entry requirements, see the US State Department COVID-19 page

Vaccination Card

The CDC white vaccine card will satisfy the documentation requirement for entry into Italy. The card should detail the following.

  • 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 no more than 6-months from the end of their program. 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
