Italy to welcome vaccinated tourists in mid-May

Italy plans to reopen borders to vaccinated travellers before the EU-wide Digital Green Certificate rolls out.

Vaccinated travellers would be welcome to visit quarantine-free from mid-May.

"We are delighted that Italy is once again ready and open for business," the Italian National Tourist Board said.

That follows an announcement by Italy's Prime Minister, Mario Draghi, that visitors could use the Italian National Vaccine Pass.

"Let us not wait until mid-June for the EU pass. In mid-May tourists can have the Italian pass... so the time has come to book your holidays in Italy," Draghi said at the G20 Ministerial meeting this week.

Vaccinated tourists will face no restriction of travel within Italy as long as they have a negative test taken up to 48 hours before arrival.

About 11% of Italians are fully vaccinated while a quarter have received a first vaccine dose.

"We have implemented robust protocols to keep our visitors safe," the Italian National Tourist Board said.

The UK is set to announce which countries make the low risk 'green' list on its traffic light system.

Italy is unlikely to be on it which would mean travellers would have to quarantine on return.
