Starting from 1 March 2022, the Decision of the Italian Minister of Health of 22 February 2022 eliminates the restrictions on entry into Italy for all travelers from non-EU countries, including Vietnam.
Entry into the Italian territory is allowed to all travelers coming from Viet Nam, also for tourism, under the following conditions::
– fill in the digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF) before departure;
– present one of the following certifications upon boarding:

There are no quarantine obligations upon entry into Italy for those who are able to show one of the above certifications. Travelers without any of the above certifications are required to self-quarantine for 5 days at the address indicated in the dPLF. They are required to take either a PCR or an antigen test at the end of the 5 days period.
