To help you plan your travel to and stay in Milan, we have compiled a central source of official information and resources.

COVID-19 Entry Requirements

The Italian Government website outlines country classifications and their entry requirements into Italy. We recommend that you refer to this source, as well as your own government guidance, to ascertain travel requirements relating to COVID-19.

Entry to Italy from the USA/UK - All delegates that are fully vaccinated and can present a negative test result are able to travel to Italy, without having to isolate. This information is in accordance with the Italian Ministry of Health announcement on 28 August 2021.
