Travelers no longer need a corona pass to enter Italy. The obligation to show proof of vaccination, recent recovery or a negative test expires today. The Ministry of Health announced this on Monday evening.
Italy was the first European country to be hit by the corona virus in early 2020. Many corona measures in the country were abolished earlier this spring. Face masks are still mandatory in public transport and at schools.
Germany is also planning to lift the entry rule, Health Minister Karl Lauterbach announced last week. The measure has not yet been completely abolished: the corona pass for travelers will be put on hold from Wednesday. That will remain the case until at least the end of the summer. In some federal states, the corona pass may still be mandatory.
Other countries will continue to use the corona pass for the time being. This is the case, for example, in France, Spain and Portugal.
If you travel back to the Netherlands from the EU/Schengen area, you no longer need to show a corona ticket. The advice to do a self-test a few days after your return has also expired at the end of March. Travelers from outside the EU must still be able to show a valid vaccination certificate. They do not also need to be tested.
