Overview

Children under 18 do not need to quarantine if they are travelling with a fully vaccinated parent.

Children under the age of 6 are exempt from testing also.

Before travelling to Italy

• Fill in passenger locator form before you enter Italy
• Children under 6 years old do not need to do a test
• Those aged 6-17 years old and travelling with a fully vaccinated parent need to show evidence of a negative lateral flow or PCR test taken within 48 hours of entering Italy

NHS tests will not be accepted – you must book your tests privately

Italy is on the “Rest of World” list

  • Non vaccinated travellers entering the UK from a non-red list country will have to do several tests and self isolate when travelling home from a “Rest of World’ country.

Before you travel to England

  • Take a lateral flow or PCR test in the 72 hour window before your flight to England
  • Complete a passenger locator form. You can submit the form any time in the 48 hours before you arrive in the UK
  • Book and pay for a Day 2 and Day 8 PCR tests. You do not need to do these tests until you arrive home but you do need this booking reference to add to your passenger locator form 

NHS tests will not be accepted – you must book your tests privately

After you arrive in England

  • Quarantine at home or in the place you are staying for 10 full days
  • Do your PCR test on Day 2 and on Day 8 – the day you enter the UK is classed as Day 0
  • You do not need to isolate whilst waiting for the result, though if you test positive, you will then need to follow the UK’s guidance on isolating
  • You may be able to end quarantine early if you pay for a private COVID-19 test through the Test to Release scheme.
  • If you are in England for less than 10 days, you need to quarantine for the time you are here. You still need to book day 2 and day 8 PCR tests. You only need to take the tests if you are still in England on those days.
