Safety measures – South Tyrol & Coronavirus
In South Tyrol and throughout Italy, only a few rules need to be observed at present. A Green Pass is required for entry to Italy and South Tyrol, and masks are only compulsory in some areas.
Where is it currently still necessary to wear a mask?
- An FFP2 mask is mandatory in the means of public transport and for indoor performances open to the public in theatres, cinemas, concert halls, venues with entertainment, live music and similar venues, indoor sporting events and competitions.
- Wearing a face mask is also mandatory in health care facilities, social care and welfare facilities (a Green Pass for visits is also required here).
- Children under 6 years of age are excepted from the mandatory protection, as well as people who cannot wear it because of health reasons. People practising a sport do not have to wear them, neither.
- For all other indoor spaces that are open to the public, the wearing of a mouth-nose protection is recommended.
What are the rules for travelling?
- 3G proof for travellers over 6 years of age: a vaccine certificate (valid for 9 months, vaccination cycle completed for at least 14 days), a certificate of recovery or a negative test result (PCR test valid for 72 hours, antigen test valid for 48 hours).
- Those who do not have 3G proof, have to go into a 5-day quarantine. A negative test is required at the end of the 5 days to end the quarantine.
- For the return journey, please observe the current measures of your home country.
