Holiday hotspot makes it easier for Brits to visit the country – here are the new rules

ITALY has eased some of their travel restrictions, making it easier for Brits to travel to the country.

Brits entering the country need to show they have been fully vaccinated using a Green Pass, with the NHS app accepted.

The new rules will now see the pass as valid as long as the traveller has had both the first two jabs in the last six months.

If they have had their third jab as a booster, then there is no expiry date on this for the vaccine passport.

There is also no expiry date if travellers have had both their vaccine doses and have had and recovered from Covid.

Arrivals must still fill in a Passenger Locator form and have a negative Covid test – a PCR within 48 hours or lateral flow within 24 hours.

If you haven't been fully vaccinated, you will have to isolate for at least five days on arrival.

Kids under 17 do not need to quarantine if they are travelling with a fully vaccinated parent, but will still need to have a negative Covid test.

Kids under six do not need to have any Covid tests.
