The coronavirus pandemic marked an important milestone in human history. It was the first time that a virus affected all the countries of the globe simultaneously, changing the rules of the game of the globalized world as it was known.

The international borders of all nations remained closed for long periods, isolating countries from each other, due to the severe restrictions that were imposed to stop the spread of Covid-19. However, a few days after the beginning of the month of May 2022, and after little more than two years since this journey began, the panorama seems to clear.

On May 1, Italy stopped requesting the affidavit of passenger location that had been implemented so that the Italian Government can control the location of all foreign travelers who arrived at “the boot”, in order to be able to control them in case any of them tested positive for coronavirus.

This document was introduced by practically all the countries of the world, as well as Argentina, and little by little it is disappearing from the obligations to be fulfilled to travel to foreign countries.

In Italy, the entry of Argentine travelers is allowed and of the world as long as they can meet any of the following four points:

one. Complete vaccination with inoculant authorized by the EMA (Pfizer, Johnson & Johnson, Novavax, Moderna and AstraZeneca), which have been applied up to 9 months before the date of admission.

two. Full vaccination with an inoculant authorized by the EMA plus a booster dose.

3. High from Covid-19, less than 6 months old.

Four. Negative result of PCR test performed by swab within 72 hours prior to entering Italy or negative antigen test performed within 48 hours prior to entering the country.

In other words, all Argentines interested in traveling to Italy could do so as long as they meet any of the aforementioned conditions. There is no impediment for those who are vaccinated with Sputnik or Cansino, since they could choose to take a test.

The text that provided the affidavit in Italy on the weekend, also reformed the regulations regarding the use of masks in public spaces. Although it is still mandatory in all public transportation (planes, subways, trains, buses and more), as well as in entertainment venues (cinemas, theaters, concert halls, among others) and in health-related establishments; ceased to be for bars and restaurants.

These provisions came into force on May 1, and for now they will be in force until June 15. If the situation remains stable, it is likely that the measure will be extended or even continued with the relaxation.
