Italy introduces stricter border controls Today's News


Print   Send to a friend

Italy is temporarily introducing stricter border controls from May 9-30 ahead of the 43rd G7 summit in Taormina, Sicily. The measures are to prevent terrorist cells from attempting to enter the country during the summit, which will be held on May 26-27.  

The measures also include temporary intra-Schengen border controls, meaning that entering and exiting Italy will take much longer during this time, especially for non-Schengen and non-EU citizens entering Italy from another Schengen state. 

The measures are valid for all ports of entry, including land, sea, and air.

Agents are advised to tell clients to arrive at airports earlier when travelling to compensate for longer security checks.
