ENTRY TO ITALY FROM CANADA AND COVID-TESTED FLIGHTS

The Italian Ministry of Health Ordinances related to travel to/from abroad (GU Serie Generale n.114 del 14-05-2021) and to “Covid-tested” flights (GU Serie Generale n.115 del 15-05-2021), effective from Sunday, May 16th, envisage the following updates as regards entering Italy from Canada:

  • Canada no longer belongs to “Group E” group of Countries, and is now part of “Group D” which includes Countries from which entry to Italy is permitted without the need for a specific reason;
  • If entry to Italy from Canada occurs via “Covid-tested” flights, passengers are not required to follow quarantine restrictions;
  • Persons departing Canada on “Covid-tested” flights are required to present to the carrier and to dedicated personnel, upon boarding, certification attesting to the negative result of the molecular test (RT PCR) or antigenic test, carried out by means of a swab, no more than 48 hours prior to boarding. Upon arrival in Italy, at the airport, passengers are required to submit to a molecular (RT PCR) or antigenic swab test;

Beginning in July, Air Canada will introduce direct flights to Rome Fiumicino airport from Montreal Pierre-Elliott Trudeau and Toronto Pearson. For further information, please click here.

Please note that in case of entry to Italy from Canada via NON “Covid-Tested” flights quarantine obligations remain in place.
