TRAVEL TO ITALY

All the emergency measures taken by the Italian Government to contain the spread of COVID-19 are still in place.

Australia is currently included into a list of countries from where it is possible to travel to Italy, providing that you have not been into any other countries in the 14 days before your trip.

If you enter Italy coming from Australia you have to:

  • Get tested within 48 hours before entering Italy and show a negative test result
  • Fill a Digital Passenger Locator Form (click here) or Print and fill a self-declaration form
  • Report your arrival to the ASL (local healthcare office)
  • Self-isolate for a period of 10 days
  • Get tested again at the end of your self-isolation period and show a negative result

Once landed in Italy, it is NOT allowed to use public transport to reach your final destination. If your flight includes intermediate transits in other Italian or international airports you CANNOT leave the transit area of such airports.  

The only flight companies currently operating flights to Italy from Melbourne are Qatar Airways, Emirates and Etihad Airways.

In order to avoid any issues during your trip to Italy, we strongly advise that you contact your flight carrier in advance before your flight to check whether they will allow you to board your flights.

Given your specific circumstances, rules may change at a short notice.
