Mandatory proof of vaccination

Documents icon
Description

Fully vaccinated travelers must bring proof of vaccination, or they may be required to comply with rules for unvaccinated travelers. Any vaccines authorized by the European Union are accepted, as long as 14 days have passed since the last dose.

The certification of successful completion of the vaccination cycle must relate to one of the four vaccines approved by the EMA: Comirnaty from Pfizer-BioNTech, Moderna, Vaxzevria, Jansen (Johnson & Johnson).

The following vaccines are considered valid for the purpose of issuing the COVID-19 green certificate to Italian citizens, residents, and their family members: Covishield, R-CoVI (R-Pharm), and Covid-19 vaccine-recombinant (Fiocruz). The above-mentioned vaccines are considered equivalent, and travelers who took these vaccines abroad are also considered fully vaccinated.

Travelers that have received a combination of two different vaccines may still be considered fully vaccinated. Please check the link for more information on accepted vaccine combinations.

This requirement does not apply to:

  • Travelers who hold an EU Digital COVID Certificate issued following recovery from COVID-19 or similar certification issued by local health authorities.

In addition to the EU digital COVID certificate and Green Certificate, certifications issued by health authorities of Canada, Japan, Israel, the United Kingdom, and the United States are also accepted.

Local Guidelines

Restrictions are gradually lifting, although regions have been organized into color-coded tiers in order to categorize restrictions. All regions of Italy are now classified as 'white zones' which is the least restricted. A COVID-19 Green Certificate (EU Digital Certificate) is required for certain public events and entry in some establishments.
