Who can come to Bellagio and how?
Everybody who comes to Italy, regardless of where they are coming from, must fill out the EU Digital Passenger Locator Form, replacing the self-declaration form. The self-declaration form may be used exclusively in the event of technological problems.
Anybody who is travelling from or has passed through a country on list C may enter Italy by presenting the following documentation to the carrier at the time of boarding:
- The EU Digital COVID Certificate (Green Pass) or other equivalent certification that you have completed the vaccination cycle or that you have recovered from COVID-19, with simultaneous termination of isolation (the certificate of recovery is valid for 180 days from the date of the first positive swab)
- Negative results from a molecular swab test performed within the 48 hours prior to entering Italy or negative antigen test performed within 24 hours prior to entering Italy (minors under 6 years of age are exempt from undergoing the swab test)
Without prejudice to the requirement to take a swab test before entering Italy, if the traveller does not have one of the COVID-19 Green Passes obtained through vaccination, 5-day self-isolation is required, at the address specified in the passenger locator form, at the end of which the traveller will be required to undergo an additional swab test.
Those arriving from any of the countries on list D may only enter Italy:
- By presenting their Covid-19 green pass or equivalent, validated by the EMA, which certifies that they are fully vaccinated (2 doses or only 1 dose in the case of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine). Only for those who have stayed or transited through Canada, Japan and the United States in the 14 days prior to entering Italy the COVID-19 green pass certifying that they have recovered from Covid is also valid
- By presenting a negative molecular swab test within the 72 hours prior to entering Italy or a negative antigen test within 24 hours prior to entering Italy (minors under 6 years of age are exempt from undergoing the swab test). For people arriving from Great Britain, Northern Ireland and the British Isles, the molecular swab test must be carried out within the 48 hours prior to entering Italy.
In the event of a failure to present the documents required, it is mandatory to enter a 5-day self-isolation period and to take a molecular or antigen swab test at the end of this period.
