Italy Introduces the Super Green Pass

The Current Corona Situation – Update November 25, 2021

Dear Friends of Italy,

now the time begins in Italy in which we spend more time indoors again. And many are wondering what the current corona situation is and whether it is safe to travel to Italy in winter.

The Italian government under Prime Minister Mario Draghi has implemented consistent measures that are now bearing fruit.

More than 85% of the Italian population over 12 years of age is fully vaccinated. Since October 15, the EU’s digital Covid certificate (Green Pass) has been mandatory for almost all admissions and for all employers and employees. This means that all hotel employees, waiters, taxi drivers, etc. have been vaccinated, recovered or tested.

From August 6, 2021, access to certain locations will only be permitted for those who have the EU Digital Covid Certificate. (known as the “Green Pass” in Italy).

Italy introduces the Super Green Pass

While the number of infections is skyrocketing in many parts of Europe, Italy has the advantage this time. The person in charge of the vaccination campaign, General Figliuolo, did a good job.
85.2% of the Italian population over 12 years of age is fully vaccinated. That is a peak in Europe. Conversely, this also means that 14.8% of the population is only vaccinated once or not at all. And yes, there is an anti-vaccination protest movement in Italy too. Especially in Trieste, Padua, Bolzano and Milan.
In order to protect the population from the uncontrolled spread of the virus and at least to enable the vaccinated to have a normal Christmas party, Prime Minister Mario Draghi, together with the government and regional representatives, announced on November 24th. issue a new decree that will come into force on December 6th. It provides for the Super Green Pass.
