With the ever-changing nature of the current situation due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we decided to publish the “Daily COVID-19 Travel Update: Entry Regulations” series of blog posts.
Please read below the most recent travel updates and entry regulations during the coronavirus pandemic.
Citizens and residents of EU/Schengen states arriving from those countries are no longer required to self-isolate upon arrival in Italy – if they have a negative result of a PCR or antigen COVID-19 swab test taken within 48 hours prior to arrival. Passengers from the United Kingdom must still self-isolate for 14 days, and will be tested upon arrival.
Other Daily Updates
- Cuba – passengers must have a medical certificate with a negative COVID-19 PCR test result, issued at most 72 hours before arrival.
- Lithuania – all passengers from the EU/Schengen affected areas (Switzerland, Liechtenstein) will be subjected to 10-day isolation. The self-isolation can be avoided by presenting a negative result of a COVID-19 test, taken within 48 hours prior to arrival, or by testing negative on a test conducted in Lithuania. Passengers from non-EU/Schengen countries will be subjected to 10-day isolation unless they test negative upon arrival. Passengers from the United Kingdom and South Africa are subject to mandatory self-isolation for 14 days, which can be shortened by testing negative on day 10 after arrival. Additionally, passengers arriving from these two countries must either present a negative COVID-19 test taken within 48 hours prior to arrival or be tested immediately after arrival.
- Philippines – all passengers except Filipino citizens who have been in or have transited through the United Kingdom, Switzerland, Netherlands, Germany, Sweden, France, Austria, Italy, United States, South Africa, Denmark, Israel, Hong Kong, Spain, Ireland, Singapore, Lebanon, Japan, Canada, Australia, Iceland, South Korea, Portugal, India, Finland, Norway, Jordan, Brazil, China, Pakistan, Jamaica, Luxembourg or Oman in the past 14 days are not allowed to enter.
- Portugal – passengers who hold a COVID-19 vaccination certificate or proof of previous COVID-19 infection issued in the last 90 days are exempt from the testing requirement. Passengers on flights from the United Kingdom to Madeira arriving without a negative test result must remain in self-isolation and be tested on day 5 after arrival.
- United States – from 26.01.2021, all arriving passengers will be required to present a negative result of a COVID-19 test taken within 3 days prior to departure. Children under 12 will be exempt. Passengers who show documentation proving previous infection (positive test not older than 90 days and medical confirmation of recovery) will also be exempt from the testing requirement.
