Please note that the advice can change and consumers should continue to check it until they travel. 

Entry Requirements 

You must ensure you have a valid passport to travel on.


If your passport describes you as a British Citizen, you do not need a visa to enter Italy. For non-British citizens, you should check the current entry requirements on the website of the Italian Foreign Ministry.

Health 

For information about important health advice and any vaccinations required please visit www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice and https://travelhealthpro.org.uk/countries.

Brexit 
If you are travelling to the EU, the UK government recommends that you have six months left on your passport on the date of your arrival to an EU country. You should also check when your passport was renewed.

If you renewed a 10-year adult passport before it expired, extra months may have been added to your passport’s expiry date. These extra months over 10 years will not count towards the 6 months that must be remaining. The UK Government has published a website tool to check the validity of your passport under these rules: https://www.passport.service.gov.uk/check-a-passport

You can renew your passport online or by going to a Post Office with a Check and Send service: https://www.gov.uk/renew-adult-passport/renew

Coronavirus (COVID-19)

As of October 18th 2020, the UK Government has confirmed that Italy has been removed from the safe travel list, therefore 14 days of self-isolation quarantine upon reentering the UK will be mandatory upon return from Sunday 18th October at 4am. Tourists choosing to book stopover flights may not be permitted to return without quarantining if the country they stop off in is not also listed as green/amber by the UK Government. Please note that this information is constantly being reviewed and may be subject to change.

If travellers have visited Croatia, Greece, Malta or Spain within 14 days of their arrival in Italy, they have to present proof of a negative PCR test that's no older than 72 hours OR take a test upon arrival and quarantine in the hotel while waiting for the results. All travellers visiting the island of Sardinia must have the results of a negative PCR test on arrival that's less than 48 hours old. 

The Italian Government requires all travellers from the UK to show they have taken a test within 72 hours of arrival along with a negative result. Those unable to provide evidence will be able to take a test in Italy. If tested positive, you will be required to quarantine.
