From June 3, 2020 it will be possible to move in Italy without self-certification; isolation remains obligatory only for those who enter Italy from a non-Schengen country. The Law decree Nr. 33 of 2020 provides for the liberalization of movement between the Italian Regions and from Italy abroad from June 3, 2020. Without further provisions, which do not exist at present, the movement is therefore to be considered liberalised on Italian territory. Of course, all the foreign regulations that impose precise restrictions on access remain in force.
- MOVEMENT BETWEEN REGIONS:
It will no longer be necessary to fill in any self-certification in order to move from one Region to another. Furthermore, it will no longer be necessary to present any justification for the movement that relates to working reasons or necessity and urgency. There is still a possibility that in case of concrete danger, regional Governors may restrict or prohibit access to their territory.
- MOVEMENT TO AND FROM ABROAD – SCHENGEN AREA:
It will no longer be necessary to fill in any self-certification, communication to the competent local health authority and subsequent isolation for those returning to Italy after a trip in the Schengen Area. Therefore, the Italian or EU-citizen who enters the country is not bound by any obligation of fiduciary isolation. All foreign regulations that are not affected by Italian regulations remain in force. It is therefore necessary, in any case, both to assess the regulatory framework of reference and to provide a letter of invitation and assignment, as well as to proceed with any other fulfilment imposed by foreign law if necessary.
- MOVEMENT TO AND FROM ABROAD – OUTSIDE THE SCHENGEN AREA: All the rules applied until now will remain unchanged for those who enter Italy from a non-Schengen country. The obligation of giving notice about their arrival to the compentent local health authority and of undergoing fiduciary isolation for 14 days still remains. These rules also apply to those who formally return from a Schengen country after having spent a period of time outside the area during the previous 14 days. To put it simple, one who returns from France has no obligations. However, if this person has spent just one day in the USA in the 14 days before entering Italy, he or she will fall back into this case.
