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 1 st July 2021

What should you know if you are in Milano?


Everyone has to abide by the following rules:

Everywhere in town: the number of people, whether walking outdoors or about to enter a public place, will be regulated

Everyone has to follow the droplet criterion (at least 1 metre (3 feet) distance between themselves and anyone else)

Everyone must respect all the rules on prevention, without wearing masks in all outdoor places. But the masks must be worn in all closed places accessible to the public, and more generally in indoor places and even in private homes (unless cohabiting people).Those who refuse to wear a mask may be fined from €400 up to €1,000. Children under six can avoid wearing a mask.

Those who carry out intense sport activity can avoid the use of a mask during thier physical activity but must maintain social distancing.

In addition it is important to know:

1) if you are running a fever higher than 37.5° you are strongly recommended to stay at home and to inform your doctor

2) if you are subjected to quarantine or positive for the virus you must stay at home.

Hospitals are regularly open.

Holy masses and all religious activities are regularly open but with limited access

Pharmacies, groceries, tobacconists, newsagents, petrol pumps, banks, shops, bars, and hairdressers are open. Everyone has to regulate the number of accesses.

Restaurants, trattorias, pizzerias, self-service, bars, pubs, patisseries, ice-cream shops are open until 23.00 only in outdoor spaces.

Tanning centers, pools, gyms, cultural and recreational circles are open.

Museums, archives, libraries, historic places, monuments and other cultural activities are open.

The public transport service is operating regularly across the entire network. They carry out daily disinfections on all vehicles and regulate the number of accesses. All passengers are requested to respect all the rules on prevention, including wearing masks.

Weekly Street markets can set up their stalls, always in compliance with safety distances.

Grocery supermarkets are open with extended hours giving access only one person per family who must wear a mask. Attendants measure body temperature before the entrance.

All parks are normally open to the public. Here it is allowed to walk at a distance of 1 meter (3 feet) from other people, to run at a distance of 2 meters (6 feet) from other people, and sit on the benches at 1 meter (3 feet) from other people.

Individual sporting activities in the parks and gardens are allowed following the droplet criterion (at least 1 metre, or 3 feet distance between yourself and anyone else).

Area B and Area C are active.

Lots of museums, theatres, companies and orchestras are organising activities on their social media pages to encourage followers to tour their arts virtually. Please visit their websites for further information on the initiatives.

A MESSAGE FROM JILL MORRIS, HER MAJESTY’S AMBASSADOR

British Embassy Rome

Issue No. 25

Thursday 1 July 2021 To UK nationals in Italy,

I hope that many of you are planning a summer break over the next few months. Before that precious time with friends and family, I wanted to provide some further information on your citizens’ rights in Italy as well as an update on the rules for international travel.

Evidencing your lifelong rights in Italy as a UK national

I know that many of you have already requested the new ‘carta di soggiorno elettronica’ from your local immigration office (‘questura’). This document is available for anyone who was legally residing in Italy before 1 January 2021. You probably already hold an EU residency document but nevertheless you should now request the new ‘carta di soggiorno’. You can read detailed guidance on how to obtain it here

Please bear in mind that the new ‘carta di soggiorno’ is not the same document as an Italian identity card. So if you already hold an Italian identity card you should still get the new ‘carta di soggiorno’ from your questura. It is not mandatory but it will provide you with the clearest evidence of your rights under the Withdrawal Agreement.

If you need support in obtaining the new card 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

Accessing services and benefits or registering a work contract

We are aware that some UK nationals have reported difficulties in accessing benefits, accessing healthcare and in registering work contracts since the start of this year. This is because they have been required to show the new ‘carta di soggiorno elettronica’ or a non-EU residency permit (called a ‘permesso di soggiorno’).

If you were lawfully living in Italy before 1 January 2021 you are protected by the Withdrawal Agreement. So, although you are now a non-EU national, you hold a specific status under this Agreement. It means that the standard residency document issued to non-EU nationals in Italy is not applicable to you. Furthermore, the new Withdrawal Agreement ‘carta di soggiorno’ is not mandatory. So you cannot be required to hold either document. However our advice is that you should obtain the new ‘carta di soggiorno’ from your questura as soon as you can.

If you have been asked to hold either of the above documents to access services including healthcare or benefits or in order to obtain a work contract, please get in touch with us as soon as possible via our Living in Italy page on gov.uk.

If you hold accredited status in Italy e.g. employee of an international organisation, diplomat or deployed under the NATO Status of Forces Agreement

UK nationals who are employees of international organisations in an EU Member State, are diplomatic personnel or are deployed under the NATO Status of Forces Agreement can be beneficiaries of the Withdrawal Agreement provided they resided in the host State before the end of the transition period. This is because they were exercising their free movement rights as workers. This means that if you hold accredited status in Italy (you hold a special Ministry of Foreign Affairs ID card) and you were working here before 1 January 2021, you also enjoy rights under the Withdrawal Agreement.

We are urgently seeking clarification from the Italian government about how you can evidence your status under the Withdrawal Agreement.  For example, how and when you can request the new Withdrawal Agreement ‘carta di soggiorno elettronica’ and use it to register your residency with the local town hall. As soon as we have an update we will publish this in our Living in Italy guide and via our social media channels. In the meantime, please rest assured that if you hold accredited status in Italy this provides for your right to live and work in Italy during your posting. And your right to remain in Italy at the end of your posting, should you wish to, is covered by the Withdrawal Agreement.

UK driving licences in Italy

I know that many of you are concerned about whether your UK driving licence continues to be recognised in Italy. Recently, the Italian government announced that UK driving licences will continue to be recognised in Italy until 31 December 2021 for those who registered their residency before the start of this year. If you registered as a resident after 1 January 2021, your UK licence will be recognised for up to 12 months from the date of your residency.

Negotiations continue on a reciprocal agreement on the right to exchange a UK driving licence for a local one without the need to re-sit a driving and theory test. Both governments share the same objective of having the agreement in force as soon as possible in order to minimise disruption and limit the impact on daily life. We have reached a good level of agreement on the text and are now working to iron out some outstanding issues before entering into the ratification phase. We are working to have the arrangements in force by December 2021 and we will keep our Living in Italy guide updated as negotiations progress.  Until an agreement is reached you will need to re-sit your driving test to obtain a local licence.

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

All UK nationals can find the very latest information on our Living in Italy 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 continue to hold live Q & A events for UK nationals on YouTube and Facebook. Please do join us if you can. You can find a readout of our latest event, which covered mobility rights, on our Facebook page.

And we continue with our programme of ‘Residency Roadshows’ for UK nationals across Italy. Each roadshow, hosted with our UK Nationals Support Fund partner – the International Organisation for Migration, is held for a specific region or city in Italy and you can sign up for a one-to-one session with our policy experts via our Facebook channel. The sessions are held on Microsoft Teams.

Covid19 and travel between the UK and Italy

I wanted to also provide details for those of you intending to visit the UK this summer. Rules can change at short notice so my advice is to always check our Travel Advice page on gov.uk for the very latest information.

Currently in order to travel to the UK you must provide evidence of a negative COVID-19 test result taken up to 3 days before departure. If you do not comply (and you do not have a valid exemption), your airline or carrier may refuse you boarding and/or you may be fined on arrival. The test results must be in English, French or Spanish.

Before travelling to the UK you must provide your journey and contact details by completing a passenger locator form. You must self-isolate when you enter the UK unless you have a valid exemption.

When you enter the UK from abroad (except from Ireland), you must follow the requirements for quarantining and taking additional COVID-19 tests. You can find more information here: https://www.gov.uk/uk-border-control; https://www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-testing-for-people-travelling-to-england

When returning to Italy from 21 June to 30 July, on arrival in Italy if you have been in the UK in the previous 14 days you must self-isolate for 5 days, at the end of which you must take a rapid antigenic or molecular swab test for COVID-19 and test negative for release. Children under the age of 6 do not need to test but must still self-isolate. If you wish to fly, you must present the airline with a negative COVID-19 rapid antigenic or molecular swab test taken no more than 48 hours before travel.

Before travel, you must complete an online digital form. This will generate a QR code, which should be presented to your travel provider and Border Police if requested. A paper form can be completed if you do not have an electronic device. Everyone arriving in Italy must also call the COVID-19 helpline for the relevant region within 48 hours, to inform them of your arrival.

You can read more about the requirement to get a COVID-19 test (including when you might be exempt) on the Italian Embassy in London’s COVID-19 update page. Check Italian Embassy in London guidance, or contact your travel provider, for more information. We also recommend you consult the Italian Government’s online questionnaire (in English) for more advice on entry requirements and travel to Italy

If you are a UK national resident in Italy, we advise carrying proof of your residence when entering Italy.

 

Whatever you have planned over this summer, I send my warm wishes to you and your family and friends. Buone vacanze!

Her Majesty’s Ambassador to Italy
