NHS COVID Pass & Booster Doses

As of Friday 19th November, the NHS Proof of COVID Vaccination has been updated to demonstrate proof of third or other booster vaccinations, as well as proof of recovery.. Please ensure all QR codes are generated in the previous 30 days to ensure they are up-to-date. You can add the NHS's International COVID Pass to your Google or Apple wallet to allow easier access when needed.

 

 

Vaccine Eligibility

Italian authorities have not made it clear which vaccines are accepted as part of their entry and Green Pass rules. However, all European Medical Authority (EMA) approved vaccinations against COVID-19 will be accepted - this includes all those routinely issued by the NHS in the UK. For those vaccinated with a non-EMA approved vaccine, please contact Italian authorities for more details.


For Entry

You are considered fully vaccinated for a period of nine months after the second dose of multi-dose vaccinations, or the only dose of a single-dose vaccination. This can be extended indefinitely upon receipt of a third or booster dose.

For Italy's Green Pass
You are considered fully vaccinated for a period of six months after the second dose of multi-dose vaccinations, or the only dose of a single-dose vaccination. This can be extended indefinitely upon receipt of a third or booster dose. Your Green Pass is valid immediately following receipt of your second dose, but note this may take between a coupe of days and two weeks to show on your NHS Proof of COVID Vaccination.

From 1st February, regular COVID-19 Antigen testing will allow those with either a second dose of vaccination or recovery certificate older than 6 months to access areas restricted by Italy's Super Green Pass.

 


FFP-2 Masks

From May 1st 2022, FFP-2 masks remain a requirement for all persons aged 6 and over on public transport in Italy, including on flights to and from Italy, and in indoor entertainment venues such as cinemas, theatres and concerts. You may find these masks in shorter supply in the UK compared to other mask types, although they remain widely available in Italian pharmacies and chemists at a fixed rate of 0.75Euro per mask.



Entry Requirements

Entry requirements are subject to change at short notice. Please check the Foreign, Commonwealth and Development Office’s advice for Italy for the latest guidance.
