TRAVEL RESTRICTIONS

 

MOBILITY LIMITATIONS

 

Due to the evolution of the pandemic situation, national and international, mobility, may be subject to the limitations imposed by local governments. It is therefore advisable to check the latest regulations before planning your trip. The violation of the regulations for Covid-19 may result in refusal to board a flight or you can be denied entry into your country of destination by the local authorities.

GREEN PASS OBLIGATION

 

As required by the D.L. 111 of August 6, 2021, from September 1, 2021 it is mandatory to present the Green Pass (Covid-19 Green Certification) when boarding your flight for both domestic and international destinations. Following the subsequent ENAC provisions, this documentation is now also required to access the sensitive areas (beyond the security gates) of all Italian airports.

 

The Green Pass is accepted in both digital and paper format in Italian, English, French and Spanish. 

 

Regarding international flights, the Company has the obligation to verify the dates of the vaccine administration, which is not verifiable by QR Code but by the certificate.  We therefore recommend printing it in case of absence of internet connection. 

 

 

DOMESTIC FLIGHTS

When boarding you will need to show one of the following documents:

  • vaccination, at least with the first dose, with a vaccine validated by the EMA
  •  a certificate confirming recovery from COVID-19 that occurred during the last 180 days prior to entry into Italy;
  • a negative test certificate for a molecular or antigenic swab carried out within 48 hours prior to entry into the national territory.

 

The regulations regarding the mobility on the national territory of Italy are published on the website of the Italian Government along with all other regulations in relation to open and authorized activities during the pandemic. There may be specific local regulations in addition to the national ones; for this reason we suggest you also check the website of the Region of destination.

FOR THOSE COMING TO ITALY FROM OTHER COUNTRIES

 

If you are flying to Italy from other countries, we recommend that you check the sites 

 

where all the provisions on the containment of Covid-19 in Italy are indicated.

 

Anyone entering Italy from Albania or the United Kingdom, must present to the Company (or who is in charge of verification) when boarding, in addition to the dPLF, both the following certificates:  

 

  • vaccination with a vaccine validated by the EMA and completed at least 14 days before arriving;
  • a certificate of a molecular or antigenic swab test taken within 72 hours (48 hours if coming from the UK) prior to entry into the national territory with a negative result 

 

No self-isolation period will be required upon arrival in Italy for travelers in possession of both certificates. In the absence of the above requirements, boarding will be permitted, but it will be mandatory to observe a 5-day period of self-isolation at the address indicated in the Passenger Locator Form followed by a molecular or antigenic test, carried out by means of a swab, at the end of this period. 

 

Furthermore, the Order of the Ministry of Health of August 28 establishes that anyone entering Italy from the United States and Japan must present to the Company (or who is in charge of verification) when boarding, in addition to the dPLF, both the following certificates: 
    

  • vaccination with a vaccine validated by the EMA and completed at least 14 days before arriving;
  • a certificate of a molecular or antigenic swab test taken within 72 hours prior to entry into the national territory with a negative result.

 

The only documentation that you have been vaccinated is not sufficient to travel: indeed, in the absence of a negative PCR molecular or antigen test result, you will be denied boarding.

 

However, in case of absence of the vaccination certificate but presenting a negative test result, boarding will be permitted, but it will be mandatory to observe a 5-day period of self-isolation at the address indicated in the Passenger Locator Form followed by a molecular or antigenic test, carried out by means of a swab, at the end of this period.

 

These certificates are accepted in digital and paper format in Italian, English, French and Spanish. The Company has the obligation to verify the dates of the vaccine administration, which is not verifiable by QR Code but by the certificate. Therefore, we recommend printing it in case of absence of internet connection.

According to the Ordinance of the Ministry of Health of 16 April 2021, from 24 May, all passengers arriving in Italy from a foreign country will have to fill in the dPLFs ( Digital Passenger Locator Form ) before boarding a direct flight on the Italian national territory.

                                 

To fill out the Passenger Locator Form in digital format, please follow these steps:

1. Connect to the site  https://app.euplf.eu/#/

2. Follow the guided procedure to access dPLF 3. Choose "Italy" as the destination country

4. Register for the site by creating a personal account with user and password

5. Fill in and send the dPLF following the guided procedure

 

Once you have submitted the form, you will receive at the email address indicated at the registration stage, the dPLF in pdf format and a QRcode that you will have to show at the time of boarding and/or anyone who is responsible for carrying out the checks. Alternatively, you can print a copy of the dPLF to show.

 

The dPLF must be completed and sent before boarding. However, the field for the assigned seat number will still be modifiable.

 

Because it is a legal obligation, failure to complete the DPLF will mean that boarding on the flight will not be permitted.

 

In exceptional cases, i.e. solely in the face of technological impediments, it will be possible to fill in and present a  paper form instead of the dPLF.

 

We remind you that it is also necessary to complete the self-certification certifying that you have not had contact with people with the virus Covid-19 before boarding.
The self-certification for is digital and can be completed during online check-in, here you will find all the relevant information.
Do not worry if you don't have the option to check-in online: you can always download the paper form here and show up at the airport with the self-certification already completed in each field.

 

Please note that you must complete the self-certification for each passenger and for each leg.
