30 May 2022



Dear All,

A new season is at the door and we are happy to provide you with the most detailed and updated infos related to formalities requirements to enter Italy and Sardinia.
First of all, we are pleased to announce that Italy’s state of emergency of Covid-19 ended on the 31st of March 2022. Currently and until the 31st of May 2022 EU and extra EU travellers are still required to be vaccinated to enter Italy. Differently from last year Passenger Locator Form is not longer required. Please note that things may change again from the 1st of June 2022, and a new update will be sent from our side.

Therefore some restrictions remain active, like the use of masks (FFP2) required in the following situations:
- Public transport (Aircraft/ Trains/Ships/Buses);
- Health facilities;
- Events/Shows open to the public but in closed spaces.

The good news in details:
- No obligation to wear a mask outdoors and in public places indoors/outdoors.
- No obligation to present a Green Pass for restaurants, hotel, shops or other commercial service
- No Passenger Locator form required

Arriving frm Italy: no sanitary documents required
Arriving from Europe: Maritime Health Declaration
Arriving from extra EU countries: Free Sanitary Practice within and not before 12 hours prior arrival

All crew members and guests are required to present EUROPEAN GREEN PASS or proof of valid vaccination recognized by Europe or healing certificate. For the not vaccinated ones, a Negative PCR or antigenic test result for COVID-19 done 48 hours prior to entering Italy is compulsory.

Regarding the hot matter of stamp in/ out of non EU crew members coming to Italy, a very important step has been taken. In fact, the last 20th of May the Italian Parliament approved the law (art.13-ter L. 51 of the 20/05/2022) that takes into consideration the issuing of a residence visa to non-EU seafarers embarking on ships in Italy, i.e. foreigners already in Italian waters for cruising and charter purposes, or for repair and maintenance work at our shipyards or our marinas. We are all waiting for the consequent necessary decrees that will determine the possibility of stamp in/out on crew passports regardless of the fact that they are not leaving the European community.

We hope our recap is useful for all our yachting community intending to travel to Italy and Sardinia. Please note that rules are constantly changing so make sure to double check prior any departure. We remain at your complete disposal in case of any further necessary assistance and we hope to come with more updates in a few days.

Please remember, you can find the same infos shared through our social channels and 'Latest News' section at our website www.nayacht.com.

Really hope to see you in Sardinia soon!!

Best regards,

Nautica Assistance Team
