We would like to inform you that according to the Decision of the 16th of April of the Italian Minister of Health, the following applies for entry into Italy from Greece from 19.04 to 30.04.2021 for anyone who has resided or made a transit through Greece within the previous 14 days from the date of arrival in Italy:

  • Must have a negative result of molecular examination or examination of COVID-19 antigens, by the method of coating, which must have been carried out within 48 hours before the intended entry into Italian territory.
  • Must notify the competent local health authority of his entry into Italy.
  • Regardless of the result of the molecular or antigen test that is already required to enter Italy, he/she must also be quarantined for five (5) days.
  • At the end of the five days quarantine, it is mandatory to perform an additional molecular test or COVID-19 antigen test, using the smear method.

Provided that there are no symptoms of COVID-19, the measures described above do not apply to:

1) whoever enters Italy for a period of less than 120 hours for proven reasons of work, health or urgency, with the obligation, at the end of the above period, to leave Italian territory immediately or, if this is not possible, to enter a period of monitoring or preventive self-restraint.

2) whoever transits, by his own means, through the Italian territory for a period of up to 36 hours, with the obligation, at the end of the above period, to leave the Italian territory immediately or, if this is not possible, to enter a monitoring or preventive self-limitation.

In any case, it is necessary to complete the “Self-Declaration form in case of entry into Italy from abroad”.

Thank you for your attention to the above.
