With COVID-19 limitations causing lots of uncertainty about international travel, our procedures and precautions for all bookings mean we are a safe and welcoming option to our customers.
MILAN, Jan 26 (Reuters) - Italy will ease COVID-19 restrictions for all visitors from European Union countries starting from Feb.1 , the health ministry said on Wednesday.
Minister of Health Roberto Speranza has signed an order stating that travellers from EU countries will only need a “green pass,” it said in statement.
The so-called Green Pass, is a document showing proof of COVID-19 immunity through vaccination, previous infection or a negative test.
On Dec. 14, Italy had ruled that all EU visitors had to take a test before departure, amid concerns over the spread of the Omicron variant of the coronavirus.
According to the ministry, Speranza’s order also renews the go-ahead for travel to a number of non-European tourist spots, widening it to six other destinations: Cuba, Singapore, Turkey, Thailand (limited to the island of Phuket), Oman and French Polynesia.
In September 2021, Italy had set up these so-called COVID-free tourist corridors: Maldives, Seychelles, Mauritius, Egypt (but only Sharm El Sheikh and Marsa Alam), Dominican Republic and Aruba.
Italy reported 167,206 COVID-19 related cases on Wednesday, against 186,740 the day before, the health ministry said, while the number of deaths fell to 426 from 468.

Alps2Alps only offers private ski transfers, meaning the vehicle is reserved for your party, so our rides are already far more COVID secure than public transport.
We take our responsibilities of keeping our customers as safe as possible very seriously. We disinfect all surfaces in the vehicle, including the luggage compartment, after every transfer. Once a day, we complete another more thorough disinfection of the car, including its ventilation system.
Sometimes our drivers meet up to 20 customers a day, so we prioritise monitoring their health for theirs and your safety.
We check our driver's body temperature several times a day. If we have any suspicions about their health we will change your transfer car immediately; this is only possible due to our impressive fleet of vehicles and the number of professional drivers we employ.
Social distancing is a vital safety measure for limiting the spread of COVID-19.
Our ski rental shops are far less busy than crowded rentals on the slopes, giving us more freedom to operate social distancing guidelines in our shops, even during peak season. Our Albertville ski rental shop has a dedicated waiting zone that helps to keep a safe distance between all of our customers.
Our drivers have a logistics and communication system in their vehicles that will divert them to the Albertville or Geneva ski rental shop, depending on which is the least busy and also more convenient for your journey.
Plus, using our Alps2Alps ski rental service means you don't have to return at the end of your trip to drop off your skis, return your ski equipment to your driver and head straight for the airport!
Although COVID-19 is difficult to pick up from surfaces, we are sure to thoroughly disinfect all returned ski equipment, as well as all of the surfaces in our shops.
Despite all of the safety measures in our ski rental shops, we understand that some customers would still prefer to avoid any premises with multiple groups of people. That's why we're offering the safest type of ski rental in the Alps - Ski Delivery!
Alps2Alps ski delivery is undoubtedly the safest way to rent skis; check our ski rental offers here.
Planning your ski holiday should be calm and enjoyable, so we want to put your mind at ease. Our Alps2Alps team is operating as usual, and we have used this time to improve our services, upgrade our offerings and prepare for the upcoming ski season.
