PASSENGERS TRAVELLING FROM THE UNITED KINGDOM
In accordance with the provisions of the British Government, whilst national restrictions are in place, you can only travel internationally from England for legally permitted reasons, such as work . This does not include holidays. Additionally, you must complete a travel declaration form and carry it with you along with any evidence supporting the reason for your trip. You may be required to show the form at the port of departure.
Lack of a valid reason for travelling may result in a denied boarding. Failure to observe the above-mentioned provision is an offence and may result in a fine. For all information please refer to the British Government website.
For passengers travelling to Italy, as indicated in the Ordinance of the Italian Ministry of Health of 9 January 2021, flights departing from the United Kingdom will only board travellers who are Italian residents or have absolute necessity to travel. At the time of boarding, passengers must present a certificate for a negative molecular (RT PCR) or antigenic test, carried out in the 72 hours before boarding. Upon arrival at Rome Fiumicino airport, passengers will be required to undergo a second antigen test and, regardless of the outcome, will need to carry out a 14-day quarantine.

FLYING IN ITALY
Italy is divided into colored areas based on the epidemiological risk; different rules apply, depending on the colour. The update is carried out weekly and is determined by the curve of the infections. Click here for more information and details.
From 15 June, it is mandatory to complete the self-certification form, before boarding, which certifies that you have not had contact with people diagnosed with COVID-19.
Self-certification is digital and can be completed during your online check-in. You can find all the info here.
Don't worry if you don't have the option to check in online: you can always download the paper form here and go to the airport with the self-certification already completed in each field, for each passenger and for each route.
If, on the other hand, you are returning from outside of Italy, in addition to the COVID-19 self-certification form, you also need to complete a second form, with two printed paper copies: one to be handed to Alitalia staff at the time of your departure and one, on request, to be given to the State Police upon your arrival in Italy.
- To download the "Return from Abroad" (except USA) form, please click here
- To download the "Return from USA" form, please here
We remind you that it is necessary to complete the self-certification for each passenger and each leg of the journey.
In order to speed up check-in and boarding processes, we recommend arriving at the airport with the forms already printed and completed.
Failure to complete all the required field of the form or the presence of non-compliant declarations will result in a boarding ban.
