It has simplified the travel rules for those who arrive in Italy from the EU or Schengen zones.
Arrivals must show proof of vaccination, recovery, or a negative COVID-19 testing. A negative lateral flow test can be taken within 24 hours of arrival, or a PCR test within 48 hours. Home test kits are not permitted and must be done by a licensed provider.

Anyone who could not provide either of these documents was required to be in quarantine for five days. However, this has been canceled.
Passengers flying to and from Italy must wear an FFP2 mask while onboard.
All rules will be reviewed by the government again on 15 March 2022.
