Official: Italy lifts ban to tourism in Africa

Possible to travel according with destinations rules

23-02-2022 by redazione

Twist of fate, would have said Mike Bongiorno: Italy has reopened to international tourism also in outbound, then for its own tourists, abolishing in fact the restrictions in the various lists.
After announcing yesterday that Italy was eliminating the quarantine and the compulsory buffer for foreigners from all over the world who wanted to enter Italy from next March 1st, the text of the complete ordinance, while not specifying anything and speaking only of entry and not of foreign travel of our compatriots, recalled the previous ordinances, which in addition to changing the restrictions, continued to refer to the lists and from these drew conditions for the "tourist corridors" and for changes in each list.
At the request for clarification on the issue, today Wednesday, February 23, sent by the Italian associations of tourism to the Ministry of Health and also by us of Malindikenya.net to the secretariat of the Ministry, came the official response.
The Association of Italian Tour Operators (ASTOI) commented as follows: "It's back to travel, repeal lists countries" specifying that the Minister of Health, Roberto Speranza, signed yesterday the measure "which in art. 5 reads: 'As of March 1, 2022 cease to apply the measures provided by the orders of the Minister of Health September 28, 2021, October 22, 2021, December 14, 2021 and January 27, 2022.
According to Astoi, this measure "entails the repeal of the ordinances on tourist corridors (September 28, 2021 and January 27, 2022) and the ordinances relating to country lists (October 22, 2021 and December 14, 2022). As of March 1, therefore, the EU indications regarding the repeal of laws and regulations that placed the ban on travel on the basis of countries rather than on the basis of the health conditions of individual citizens are given effect". |
Even better has done the Federation of Tour Operators, FTO, which has asked directly to the Ministry the following question: "An Italian citizen from March 1, 2022 can go for tourism in a country that was in the list E (for example, Kenya)?"
This was the answer: "Yes, taking care to verify the rules of the State of destination and carriers".
The FTO concludes by stating "As of March 1, it is possible to travel for tourism anywhere by following the rules of the destination countries".
Now there seems to be no more doubts, this time the confusion that always accompanies the reading of decrees and ordinances and the translation from bureaucratic to Italian, has been clarified in a positive way.
So, everyone in Kenya from March 1, 2022!!!
