Italy removed its domestic green pass requirement as of May 1, 2022. A green pass is only required in certain hospital and ER situations.

A basic green pass is still required for entry to Italy from a foreign country.

The Italian health ministry website lists entry requirements as the following:

  • completion of the primary vaccination series or booster dose according to the vaccination plans of the countries of release with vaccines authorized by the European Medical Agency (primary series validity 9 months and booster dose without predefined limit) 
  • recovery from SARS-CoV-2 infection (valid for 180 days from positive swab test)
  • recovery after the administration of the first dose of vaccine or at the end of the primary vaccination series or following the administration of the relevant booster dose
