After months of isolation and bans on travel from and to the other Schengen and EU Member States, Italy has finally decided to open for travellers from this area.
The Italian government has decided to permit unrestricted travel between Italy and other Schengen countries and within Italy itself starting June 3, on its Friday session of the Council of Ministers, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.
According to a notice published in the website of the Italian government the Council of Ministers, on the proposal of President Giuseppe Conte and Minister of Health Roberto Speranza, approved a decree-law which introduces further urgent measures to deal with the epidemiological emergency from COVID-19.
The decree which foresees the Italian borders to reopen on June 3, notes that the decision could be annulled if the situation in Italy regarding the rate of Coronavirus infections worsens again.
“From June 3 2020, travel between different regions can only be limited by state measures adopted pursuant to article 2 of the decree-law March 25 2020, n. 19, in relation to specific areas of the national territory, according to principles of adequacy and proportionality to the epidemiological risk actually present in these areas,” the decree reads.
It also explains that these rules will also apply to travel to and from abroad, which may be limited only by state measures also in relation to specific States and territories, according to principles of adequacy and proportionality to the epidemiological risk and in compliance with the constraints deriving from the regulation of the European Union and international obligations.
Travel between Vatican City or the Republic of San Marino and neighbouring regions will be allowed.
It, however, does not state the health and safety measures undertaken for travellers reaching Italy after June 3.
Since early March, Italy has had very strict COVID-19 lockdown measures in place, after it marked the first death from the virus on February 21. Since then, over than 31,700 people have died in the country from the virus, third-highest among the world’s nations.
