Getting to Italy is going to be a little easier, at least for Europeans.

The country will indeed ease health restrictions for travelers from European Union countries from February, requiring proof of vaccination, recent recovery or negative test but no longer the obligation of quarantine.

Under the decree signed by the Minister of Health Roberto Speranza on Tuesday, the vaccination pass will be sufficient for these travelers.

Baptized in Italy "reinforced health pass", it is obtained with a complete vaccination cycle or after recovery from Covid-19.

Better coordination of the 27

The Twenty-Seven agreed on Tuesday to better coordinate the rules applicable to travel within the EU and to avoid imposing restrictions on holders of a European health certificate, as some countries have faced with the emergence of the Omicron variant. Several countries, including Italy, require travelers, even vaccinated, to present negative tests to enter their territory.

The Italian government, faced with a rebound in contagions due to the Omicron variant, decided at the end of December to require from January 10 the vaccination pass in transport, hotels, restaurant terraces, fairs and congresses as well as swimming pools. and gyms.

But since then, the health situation has changed.

Italy "seems to have reached the peak" of the Omicron wave which "is coming down," said the coordinator of the vaccination campaign on Monday.

More than 167,000 new cases of Covid-19 were recorded Wednesday in the country, and 426 deaths.
