Latest Updates

Last updated 4 October 2021.

Until 30 August, travellers who have been in the UK, in the previous 14 days, must present a negative PCR or antigen test taken in the 48 hours preceding entry into Italy. They must also self-isolate for 5 days, at the end of which they must take a rapid antigen or PCR swab test for coronavirus and test negative for release. Children under the age of 6, from the UK, do not need to test but are not exempt from self-isolation. Please see the government website for further information.

From 4am on Monday 4 October 2021, the rules for international travel to England have changed from the red, amber, green traffic light system to a single red list of countries and simplified travel measures for arrivals from the rest of the world. The rules for travel from countries and territories not on the red list will depend on your vaccination status. Fully vaccinated travellers can book a day 2 test with free delivery. Not fully vaccinated or unvaccinated travellers can book their return antigen tests and day 2 and 8 travel packages with Medicspot. Further details can be found on our Covid test page.
