Self- declaration

New self-certifications*

As of 24 May 2021, all passengers entering Italy from abroad (Countries on Lists B, C, D and E) are required to fill in the digital location form (dPLF - Passenger Locator Form) according to the procedures identified by the Ministry of Health on 15 May 2021. The dPLF must be compulsorily completed and submitted before boarding.

On the Ministry of Health - New Coronavirus website, in the Travellers section, there is a specific page with instructions and a direct link for filling in the dPLF.

The compilation of the dPLF will replace the paper self-certification.  Once the dPLF is available, the self-certification will be able to be filled in paper only and exclusively in the event of technological impediments, using the paper form as per facsimile available on the aforementioned Ministry of Health website.


To be handed to the Border Police at immigration controls.
With the exception of passengers departing and arriving with
“Covid-tested” flights and passengers from the United Kingdom
of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and Israel.





Please note that the Technical Annex on air transport (Annex 15 to the Italian Prime Ministerial Decree of 02/03/2021) requires airlines, in order to derogate from the one-metre social distancing between people on board aircrafts, to request a specific self-certification from passengers stating that they have not had close contact with a person suffering from COVID-19 in the last two days before the start of symptoms and up to 14 days after the start of symptoms. For the above-mentioned purpose, passengers who start experiencing COVID-19 symptoms within 8 days of landing from the aircraft, in the interest of traceability, must undertake to notify the airline and the competent local health authority.
Please refer to the instructions provided by the individual airlines regarding Covid-19 self-declaration.
