To travel this summer, a certificate certifying the successful anti-Covid vaccination, the negative result of the test or the recovery from the disease will be mandatory. From 1 July all EU countries should recognize the EU Covid-19 Certificate, a digital tool for free movement in Europe. But in some cases it will not be enough because the states of the European Union have exclusive competence over health and borders. Since June 1, ten countries have connected to the EU gateway and seven have already started issuing the first certificates. Here are the rules to be respected in some EU countries if you come from Italy. Greece No mandatory quarantine but random tests for those coming from the EU with a vaccination certificate. Negative molecular PCR test, carried out within 72 hours prior to entry to Greece, is also accepted. It will also be possible to present the certificate of healing occurred in the last 9 months issued by a public authority. Certificates in English, German, French, Italian, Spanish or Russian are accepted. Children under 5 are exempted. Croatia Uses the parameters of the color map of the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control updated every 7 days. For those coming from a non-“green” area, isolation is not required, but complete vaccination more than 14 days before arrival. Alternatively, you accept the certificate of healing, in the last 6 months, proven by a negative test performed in the previous 180 days. Everyone else must provide a negative swab, except children under 7 years old. In the absence of a valid test, it must be performed immediately upon arrival, at your own expense, with the obligation to remain in isolation until the result is negative. Spain There is no need for quarantine if you have a negative swab, Pcr or rapid, carried out 72 hours before departure. Children up to 6 years are exempt. The certificate must be original in Spanish, English, German or French. Otherwise, a translation into Spanish is required, carried out by an official body. From 1 July it will be mandatory to fill in a health check form. France You will need a negative Pcr-Rt molecular swab taken within 72 hours before departure. The antigen test is not valid and the swab is also mandatory for vaccinated, exempted children under 11 years. Self-certification is also required for all. Return to Italy If you are returning from an EU country, the United Kingdom, Northern Ireland, Switzerland, Andorra, the Principality of Monaco and Israel, you need to fill in the digital location form. It is mandatory to present a molecular or antigenic swab with negative result, carried out within 48 hours prior to return. Children under the age of two are exempt from the test. In the absence of a test or the Covid pass, you will have to put yourself in fiduciary isolation and health surveillance for 10 days. It will also be necessary to notify the competent health authority for the area and, at the end of the quarantine, to carry out a swab.
