The Italian visa center VMS Italy announced resumption of accepting documents from Russian citizens for issuing tourist visas.
The center's website reports that acceptance of documents for issuing tourist visas has resumed from Tuesday, March 1 with an appointment.
Russian tourists need to have a questionnaire on whereabouts and one of three documents:
1. Certificate of vaccination recognized by the EMA as a vaccine.
2. Certificate of recovery from COVID-19 with translation into Italian or English.
3. Help – an antigen express test valid for 48 hours or a molecular PCR test valid for 72 hours with a negative result.
Order to lift quarantine in Italy due to COVID-19 for travelers from all non-European countries came into force on March 1. Lifting of quarantine removes entry restrictions for Russian tourists.
