Following a relevant decision of the Italian Government with the Decree of 3 December 2020, the following measures apply for entry into Italy from Greece:
a) from 10.12.2020 to 20.12.2020, anyone who has resided or made a transit through Greece within the previous 14 days, from the date of arrival in Italy, must have a negative result of molecular examination or examination of COVID-19 antigens, by the method of coating, which must have been carried out within 48 hours before the intended entry into Italian territory.
b) Anyone entering Italy after a stay or transit through Greece, from December 21 to January 6, must observe a period of “quarantine” (increased vigilance and preventive self-limitation of fourteen days), while no negative test is required.
Only those who have stayed or transited through Greece, during the above period, for reasons strictly related to (a) work, (b) urgent need, (c) health reasons, (d) study reasons, (e) return to the place of permanent residence or stay, are obliged to present a negative test that has been carried out within the last 48 hours before their entry into the Italian territory (while they are not obliged to observe a period of preventive self-restraint).
Provided that there are no symptoms of COVID-19, the measures described above (test and/or preventive self-limitation) do not apply to:
(1) whoever enters Italy for a period of less than 120 hours for proven reasons of work, health or urgency, with the obligation, at the end of the above period, to leave Italian territory immediately or, if this is not possible, to enter a period of monitoring or preventive self-restraint of fourteen days.
2) whoever transits, by his own means, through the Italian territory for a period of up to 36 hours, with the obligation, at the end of the above period, to leave the Italian territory immediately or, if this is not possible, to enter a monitoring or preventive self-limitation period of fourteen days.
