Italy’s Green Pass system will come into effect on August 6, requiring the EU Digital Covid Certificate to be shown to access certain non-essential services, such as eating indoors and on entry to events, pools, theatres, museums and cinemas. It will not be required on public transport or flights within Italy. Food and drinks may still be consumed outdoors or a coffee sipped at the bar without needing to show the pass.

 

 

The certification shows that you have been vaccinated (one dose is sufficient for access), that you have had a negative test in the last 48 hours, or that you have recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months.

 

 

 

 

 

How do I get the Green Pass in Italy?

 

The EU Digital Covid Certificate can be downloaded online here in Italian, English, French and German.

 

The certification shows that you have been vaccinated (one dose is sufficient for access), that you have had a negative test in the last 48 hours, or that you have recovered from COVID-19 in the last six months.

 

If you have been vaccinated in Italy, you are usually notified by email/SMS with an AUTHCODE that allows you to download the certificate onto your smartphone. The email usually arrives within 48 hours of the first dose of the vaccine. The final certificate is generally issued within 48 hours of the second dose.

 

 

 

How do I get the Green Pass if I haven’t received the AUTHCODE?

 

If you don’t receive the email with the AUTHCODE, you can request the code here and then use the dgc.gov.it website to download the certificate.

 

The digital certificate can also be obtained from the website as well as using the online regional health system (Fascicolo Sanitario Elettronico), by using the digital identity system SPID or via the Immuni contact-tracing app.

 

You can also obtain the certificate from your GP or a pharmacy by showing your tessera sanitaria (health card).

How does the Green Pass work for travellers?

 

EU travellers coming to Italy can use the version of the certificate issued by their own countries.

 

To date, it has been confirmed that travellers from the US, UK, Canada, Japan and Israel can show their vaccination certificates in Italy.
