Italian Prime Minister announced the introduction of a “green pass” for travel around the country

Italy in the second half of May will introduce a “green pass”, on which it will be possible to travel in the country.  This was announced on Tuesday by Italian Prime Minister Mario Draghi at a press conference following the video conference of the G20 tourism ministers, chaired by Rome.

“Starting in mid-June, the European green pass will be ready. In anticipation of its introduction, the Italian government has introduced its own national green pass, which will be in effect from mid-May. The world wants to travel and Italy is ready to accept the world in complete security.”  said Draghi.

At the same time, the head of government did not specify whether it was only a vaccination certificate or something else.

He noted that a gradual return of foreign tourism is expected from mid-May to early June.  “We are talking about the possibility of receiving tourists without quarantine,” the minister said.  However, he did not indicate possible dates for the resumption of the reception of tourists from countries outside the EU.
