The border for European is open in Italy but it has imposed mandatory coronavirus testing for all visitors who arrive from Croatia, Greece, Malta and Spain. The country banned all visitors from Colombia for these days.
In this time, Health authorities worry in particular that Italians returning from vacations abroad may be bringing home the virus and passing it on when people are crowding outdoors, on beaches, at festivals or parties during the summer.
Under the new rules, travellers arriving at an airport, port or border crossing can choose from a number of options, including rapid tests on the spot, or the presentation of a certificate obtained within the last 72 hours which shows they are COVID-19 free.
