Italy Eases Border Rules For EU Arrivals


From February, passengers arriving from the EU will be asked to produce proof of vaccination, recent recovery, or a negative test, but will not be subjected to quarantine.



As occurrences of the Omicron strain increased in December, Rome requested coronavirus tests from everyone and a five-day quarantine for those who had not been vaccinated.



From next month the ‘green pass’ will be adequate for travellers travelling from countries within the European Union. This was stated under the decree signed by Health Minister Roberto Speranza on Tuesday.


The green pass in Italy indicates that the bearer has been vaccinated, has recovered from the virus recently, or has tested negative.



Italy was the first EU country to experience a major outbreak of COVID-19 in early 2020.


Taking a look at Malta’s situation. Chris Fearne announced on Tuesday evening that the vaccine certificate will no longer be required from February. This only applies to certain venues and does not apply to travelling.



This means that everyone travelling to Malta must have had a second vaccine dosage within the last three months, which is in violation of the European Commission’s nine-month expiry regulation.
