Restrictions and Required Documents
DOCUMENTS AND RESTRICTIONS FOR TRAVELLING ABROAD
Travel to and from foreign countries is subjected to the Decree of the Italian President of the Council of Ministers dated March 6, 2021, which lists the possibility of specific limitations.
For all the details on the limitations or on the need to produce a self-declaration for your trip, please consult the dedicated section of the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs website or complete the Information Form on the Viaggiare Sicuri website.
In any case, we recommend you to check carefully the regulation established in the country of destination or any transit country before leaving for a trip abroad. Furthermore, each Italian Region has the possibility to impose additional regulations on those coming from foreign states or territories. It is therefore recommended to also check for any additional provisions by the Region of destination by contacting them directly or by visiting their websites.
N.B. Following the provision of the Italian Ministry of Health and ENAC dispositions, all passengers coming to Italy from a foreign destination need to fill in a SELF-CERTIFICATION FORM that must be completed and handed over to the carrier before departure.
For all the exceptions regarding self-isolation, please, visit the Ministry of Foreign Affairs website.

SELF-CERTIFICATION FOR TRAVELLING IN ITALY
Travels within the Italian territory are regulated by the Prime Ministerial Decree of January 14, 2021, and by the Law-Decree dated January 5, 2021, which identifies three different levels of risk in Italy.
All passengers leaving to or from one of the Regions identified in the red and orange zones must, therefore, justify the necessity of their travel with a self-declaration form.
It is necessary to arrive at the airport with the self-declaration form filled out: it will be verified by Police staff before going through the security check. Therefore, we invite passengers to arrive at the airport in advance.
