IBSA Foundation 

Is one of the most recent products of the powerful vision of IBSA Institut Biochimique’s President, created in 2012 in Lugano, Switzerland, a country that groups together the different languages, cultures, peoples and traditions of 26 cantons.

The Foundation therefore grows and operates in a genuine borderland, exposed to a wide range of different influences and interesting fusions. With this background, the Foundation has inherited the ability to explore scenarios that are constantly changing – a useful skill for studying the continuous evolution of the frontiers of science.

The key mission of the IBSA Foundation is to support young students and researchers. Therefore, among its many initiatives, the Foundation promotes high-level forums in which internationally-renowned scientists meet with the new generation of scholars. It also dedicates resources to the promotion of fellowships in the various fields of basic research and commits itself to the dissemination of scientific culture through communication models that encourage dialogue.

The summit will also provide a platform to follow-up on actions happening around commitments announced in December 2020, and the growing global momentum around the seven-point PMNCH Call to Action on COVID-19 which seeks to protect and prioritize the rights and health of women, children and adolescents during the COVID-19 response and recovery, by strengthening policies and financing for improving equity, health services and social protections. The summit will provide an opportunity to explore any challenges involved, exchange best practice ideas, and foster collaboration and partnership.

General advice for the public

and basic

protective measures

against the new coronavirus.

For more info see https://www.who.int/emergencies/diseases/novel-coronavirus-2019

Take care of your health and protect others by following these simple rules:

Wash your hands frequently
Regularly and thoroughly clean your hands with an alcohol-based hand rub or wash them with soap and water.
Why?
Washing your hands with soap and water or using alcohol-based hand rub kills viruses that may be on your hands.

Maintain social distancing
Maintain at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.
Why?
When someone coughs or sneezes they spray small liquid droplets from their nose or mouth which may contain virus. If you are too close, you can breathe in the droplets, including the COVID-19 virus if the person coughing has the disease.

Avoid touching eyes, nose and mouth
Why?
Hands touch many surfaces and can pick up viruses. Once contaminated, hands can transfer the virus to your eyes, nose or mouth. From there, the virus can enter your body and can make you sick.

Practice respiratory hygiene
Make sure you, and the people around you, follow good respiratory hygiene. This means covering your mouth and nose with your bent elbow or tissue when you cough or sneeze.

Then dispose of the used tissue immediately.
Why?
Droplets spread virus. By following good respiratory hygiene you protect the people around you from viruses such as cold, flu and COVID-19. If you have fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical care early. Stay home if you feel unwell. If you have a fever, cough and difficulty breathing, seek medical attention and call in advance.

Follow the directions of your local health authority.
Why?
National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on the situation in your area. Calling in advance will allow your health care provider to quickly direct you to the right health facility. This will also protect you and help prevent spread of viruses and other infections.

Stay informed and follow advice given by your healthcare provider
Stay informed on the latest developments about COVID-19. Follow advice given by your healthcare provider, your national and local public health authority or your employer on how to protect yourself and others from COVID-19.
Why?
National and local authorities will have the most up to date information on whether COVID-19 is spreading in your area. They are best placed to advise on what people in your area should be doing to protect themselves.

 

These are the latest decisions

by the Lombardy government

from 26 th April 2021

To UK Nationals in Italy

Jill Morris CMG
Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Italy

I am writing to update you on Italy’s implementation of the Withdrawal Agreement for UK nationals who were settled in Italy before 1 January 2021 and to provide some important information on citizens’ rights. I also wanted to provide an update on access to the Covid-19 vaccine in Italy and travel to the UK

The new Withdrawal Agreement biometric residency card

The Italian government has introduced a new biometric residence document for UK nationals and their family members issued under the Withdrawal Agreement (‘carta di soggiorno elettronica’ or ‘documento in formato digitale sulla base di quanto previsto dall’Accordo di recesso’). If you were living in Italy before 1 January 2021, you should get this card from your local questura.

We have published detailed guidance on how to get the new biometric residence card on our Living in Italy guide here.

Many of you have already requested the new card from your local questura. As international travel picks up, you can evidence your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement at the border by showing your new card. If you do not yet have the new card, then you can prove your status with your current EU residency document or other documentation that shows you were living in Italy before 1 January 2021. In doing so, you will avoid having your UK passport stamped at the border or being questioned about your reasons for travel.

If you need support in obtaining the new ‘carta di soggiorno elettronica’, you can get in touch with our UK Nationals Support Fund partner the International Organisation for Migration. You can call them on 800 684 884 or email: UKnationalsit@iom.int

Evidencing your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement in Italy

UK nationals who were lawfully living in Italy before 1 January 2021 have rights under the Withdrawal Agreement automatically and there is no need to re-apply for these rights. This means that the new ‘carta di soggiorno’ is not mandatory, although we are advising UK nationals to obtain it. This is because it provides the clearest evidence of your automatic rights under the Withdrawal Agreement.

The Italian government has recently published confirmation that the new ‘carta di soggiorno’ is not mandatory and your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement do not depend on holding it. If you are having difficulties in accessing services because you do not hold the new card, you can signpost your local provider to the official Italian government website here.

We have recently updated our Living in Italy page with guidance from both the Italian Banking Association and Italian Council of Notaries. Their guidance clarifies that Withdrawal Agreement beneficiaries cannot be asked to produce a non-EU residency permit or the new ‘carta di soggiorno’ to enjoy rights in Italy.

Please consult our Living in Italy guide for updates as well as our social media channels.  UK nationals who may be experiencing difficulties can contact us via our contact webform on our Living in Italy page.

Driving licences in Italy

If you are a resident in Italy, you should obtain an Italian driving licence. We are currently negotiating with the Italian government for an agreement to provide for the right to exchange a UK driving licence for a local one without the need to re-sit a test. Until an agreement is in place, you will need to take a test to exchange your valid UK licence.

The Italian government has recently announced that, if you registered your residency before 1 January 2021, then you can continue to use your valid UK licence until 31 December 2021. If you are resident in Italy after 1 January 2021, your valid UK licence will be recognised in Italy for 12 months from the date you became resident.

As soon as we have information on an agreement on exchange we will update our Living in Italy guide.

Hosting guests at your property

If you are living in Italy and you host a UK national (or any non-EU national) as a guest, you must inform your local immigration office (questura) in writing within 48 hours after they arrive at your property. You could be fined if you fail to comply with this Italian immigration law.

If you host an EU national, you must inform the questura if they will stay with you for 30 days or more. The above requirement does not apply to diplomats who currently work in Italy.

Information for UK nationals living in Italy under accredited status

The European Commission has recently confirmed to Member States that the Withdrawal Agreement does not allow a distinction between beneficiaries based on whether they have “special status” or not.  Therefore, UK nationals who are employees of international organisations in Italy, are diplomatic personnel or are deployed under the NATO Status of Forces Agreement can be beneficiaries of the Withdrawal Agreement provided they resided in Italy before 31 December 2020. This is because they were exercising their free movement rights as workers.

We are engaging with the Italian Ministry of Foreign Affairs to clarify how those who currently hold accredited status and are covered by the Withdrawal Agreement can evidence their Withdrawal Agreement rights whilst in Italy. For example, whether they can request the new ‘carta di soggiorno elettronica’ issued under the Withdrawal Agreement during their posting in Italy to hold alongside the MFA card.

The clarification from the Commission is significant as it underlines that UK nationals in Italy accredited with the MFA before 1 January can remain in Italy after the end of holding accredited status and enjoy rights under the Withdrawal Agreement. As soon as we have further updates, we will publish these on our website.

Where to find more information on your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement

You can find the very latest information on our Living in Italy page on gov.uk. This remains our key resource for UK nationals. It includes details on residency, healthcare and benefits, pensions, driving licences and how to get in touch with us.

We held our latest Q & A event on Facebook and YouTube on Thursday 13 May, so please visit our Facebook page if you wish to watch the recorded session. And we are continuing with our ‘Residency Roadshows’ for UK nationals across Italy in partnership with the International Organisation for Migration.  You can sign up for any of our events, including our one-to-one advisory sessions, via our Facebook page or our website.

Covid-19 and access to vaccines

I want to provide details for those of you intending to request the Covid-19 vaccine. A phased vaccination programme was launched in Italy on 27 December. The Italian Medicines Agency (AIFA) has issued comprehensive information on the vaccine and the documentation required to book an appointment.

Many regional authorities have launched on-line booking platforms and are currently inviting those in priority groups to register. An interactive map (in Italian) details a list of vaccine administration points by region.

We are aware that some people who are not currently registered with the regional healthcare authority have been unable to book an appointment for a vaccine. This is not applicable in all regions so you should check your own region’s requirements. You may want to contact your regional ASL by phone as well, in addition to booking an appointment online.

We have raised this issue with the Italian Ministry of Health, and we will publish an update on our gov.uk pages as soon as possible.

Travel to England

From 17 May, the rules for people arriving in England from abroad are changing. What you need to do depends on where you have been in the 10 days before you arrive. If you have been in a country or territory on the:

You must follow these rules even if you have been vaccinated. Find out what list the country you’ve been in is on and what you need to do.

Until 17 May, you must follow the current testing and quarantine rules which are detailed here.
