Italy Opens Borders for Ukrainian Tourists

Italy is open to Ukrainian tourists from July 31, with the condition of being in isolation for five days after arrival

Minister of foreign affairs Dmytro Kuleba wrote about this on Twitter.

"Italy will restore visa-free travel for Ukrainians on July 31, as recommended by the EU Council. There is a nuance: five days of self-isolation after arrival. But even self-isolation cannot spoil emotions when you are in Italy," the minister said.

According to the order of the Ministry of health of Italy of July 29 on the updated border crossing with Italy in connection with the COVID-19 pandemic, Ukraine is included in the list of category D countries from July 31, which provides the opportunity to visit the territory of the Italian Republic for any purpose, including tourism.

However, those wishing to visit Italy should consider the following basic requirements: a certificate of negative molecular or rapid testing for COVID-19, which must be done at least 72 hours before arrival;

Upon arrival in Italy, citizens must undergo self-isolation for five days, followed by a repeat test for COVID-19, which should confirm a negative result.

Such conditions will be valid until August 31.

As reported, in the European Union, 14 countries have already opened borders for all types of travel of Ukrainians.

Most countries require a full vaccination certificate or a fresh negative test to enter.

The ministry pointed out that the specific conditions of entry to each country may differ.
