New Guidelines are in effect from December 6, 2021 to January 15, 2022:

Reinforced Green Pass (also known as ‘Super Green Pass’.)  Who is entitled to it?

  • Who has finished the vaccination cycle
  • Who has had Covid-19

Basic Green Pass: Who is entitled to it?

  • Who has done a swab test with negative result

Validity of a ‘Super Green Pass’ and a ‘Basic Green Pass’ 

The ‘Super Green Pass’ will last for 9 months starting from the date of the last vaccination or that of a certificate of a clean bill of health.

The ‘Basic Green Pass’ will have a duration of 72 hours with a negative serological test otherwise it will be valid for 48 hours with a negative rapid antigen swab.


Guidelines for Public Transportation

To board a High-Speed Rail train or a plane, a regional or commuter train, it is still mandatory to show at least a negative rapid swab test done in the past 48 hours.

Update:  A negative swab will be mandatory on local public transportation. That means busses, subways and coaches.  Random monitoring will be carried out.  Holders of a ‘Super Green Pass’ will be able to travel without any restrictions.

Face Masks in Closed Spaces

It is mandatory to wear a face mask in closed spaces.

Face Masks Outdoors

In a yellow, orange or red zone, it is mandatory to wear a face mask even outdoors.  You must carry one at all times in all zones. 


How Will It Apply in the Workplace

To go to work it is sufficient to have a ‘Basic Green Pass,’ that means that a serological test has been done in the last 72 hours, or a rapid antigen test within 48 hours. A ‘Super Green Pass’ will be necessary to eat in the cafeteria.


Who Is Responsible for Monitoring and Issuing Fines at the Workplace

There is no change.  Employers are still responsible for insuring that their employees have a ‘Basic Green Pass.’  Monitoring will be carried out at the workplace entrance and by random checks.  Failure to enforce these guidelines can result in fines from €600 to €1500. Failure to monitor can result in fines from €400 to €1000.


Coffee Shops, Restaurants and Discos Are Off  Limits to Those without a ‘Super Green Pass’

Even in a white zone, those who are not vaccinated will not be able to sit in an indoor restaurant or coffee shop, private parties and public ceremonies.  Furthermore they will not be able to attend sporting events in stadiums or arenas.  

On the other hand, they will be able to go to a gym or swimming pool.

Please Note:  In a red zone, the rules that apply to those not vaccinated, will be applied to those with a ‘Super Green Pass.’  


Ski Resorts:  New Guidelines

At ski resorts located in white and yellow zones, you will be able to use the facilities with a ‘Basic Green Pass’ while in an orange zone a ‘Super Green Pass’ will be necessary.  In a red zone, ski resorts will be closed.
