The Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, has pointed out that Italy “opts for the prudence line” and maintains quarantine and health surveillance “for all citizens of countries outside the Schengen area”, also “of the 15 identified by the EU “as” insurance “. “The situation worldwide is still very complex. We must avoid frustrating the sacrifices made by the Italians in recent months,” said Speranza.
Italy has also informed that it will allow residents of all these countries to enter due to labor needs, health reasons, studies and absolute urgency. Citizens within the Schengen area will be allowed to move freely in the country, as Italy decreed on June 3 when it opened its borders in an attempt to encourage tourism, one of the sectors hardest hit by the crisis in the pandemic.

In addition, the Italian Ministry of Health also requires all travelers to fill out a form that they must deliver to the companies and which certifies that there have been no close contacts with people sick with coronavirus in recent days.
