Health restrictions you need to know before traveling to Italy

Do you need documents translated for Italy entry registration?

Before you may want to visit one the of most quaint places on earth, Italy, you may want to check if all your relevant documents are in order. If you have been issued documents by foreign authorities, you have to translate them in order for them to be enforceable in Italy. Find below how to do it.

To be enforceable, all the documents issued by foreign authorities must be “legalized” and translated into the beautiful Italian language. Here is an exception: you don’t have to if they are drawn upon multilingual forms. And of course, these translations must carry the stamp per traduzione conforme. This conformity can be proven by the translator himself, whose signature is then legalized by the consular office. We’re talking about countries where licensed translators are legitimately accepted. In those countries where they are not accepted, a certification of conformity (certificazione di conformità) has to be attached to the document by the consular office.

Test and quarantine requirements for entering Italy

As summer temperatures have already hit the beautiful Mediterranean country, one must be really looking forward to enjoying the delicious food and the rich history of Italia. If you come from an EU country or the Schengen zone, no need to worry about. You just have to present a passenger locator form and evidence of full vaccination, recovery from COVID-19 or a negative PCR or antigenic test result from the past 2 days.

Visitors coming from other countries are supposed to fill in the Passenger Locator form before entering the country; present a negative result no more than 72 hours before the entry; inform their arrival to the Prevention Department of the Local Health Authority; reach their ultimate destination in Italy via private means of transport; undergo fiduciary isolation and health surveillance for 10 days; after the ten-day quarantine, take their extra molecular or antigenic swab.

As per the social distancing, they may fluctuate depending on the regions and their respective epidemiological situation. The country was categorized into four zones coded with color – white, yellow, orange, and red, all in accordance with the risk level of the corona infection. Beginning from June 28, all of Italy is white, and the only rules to be followed are: maintain a safe distance and avoid crowds.

Did you know? Facts about Italy

Italy is one of the most enthralling countries across the world, from the Romeo-and-Julietably romantic Verona and the thousands-of-years-old Colosseum to Lago di Garda and the sky-reaching Alpine mountains in the North. Let us have a look at some of the interesting, fun, and informative facts about the country whose territory resembles a boot.

  • Italy is one of the youngest countries in Western Europe. With many centuries being divided into small separate nation-states, Italy finally united in 1861 into a single country known as the Kingdom of Italy. The cultural diversity that is now present in Italy dates back from these times.
  • €1,000,000 into the Trevi Fountain every single year by the tourists. At the Trevi Fountain in Rome, tourists toss coins every day, enticed by the myth and legend according to which, throwing a coin into the Fountain guarantees you will return to the Immortal City (fingers crossed!). All the money is collected and given to charity.
  • Most UNESCO heritage sites. With its numerous and affluent cultural heritage, Italy leads the way for the most heritage sites registered under the protection of UNESCO.
  • The fifth most visited country in the world. Just find a reason not to visit Italy: Rome, Pisa, Florence, and Milan, together with jewels like Lake Como, Assisi, Verona, Sorrento, and the exquisite Isle of Capri!!
  • The three active volcanoes in Europe are in Italy: Etna, Vesuvius, and Stromboli. Etna is located on the island of Sicily and has last erupted in 2018, while Stromboli is located off the coast of Sicily. Meanwhile, Mount Vesuvius is in Naples and in 79 B.C. caused one of the most disastrous eruptions in history, the consequences of which are still visible in the ancient city of Pompeii.
