BRITS wanting to head to Italy have been given a holiday boost as the country is to end the mandatory quarantine on arrivals.
The current rules mandate that UK arrivals quarantine for five days on arrival, regardless of vaccination status.
However, the new rules will allow Brits who have had both jabs to skip the quarantine, in place from tomorrow.
Instead, holidaymakers will just need to have a negative Covid test – either a PCR or antigen – 48 hours before arrivals.
Unvaxxed Brits will still have to self-isolate on arrival in Italy.
It is great news for Brits wanting to head to holiday hotspots such as Venice, Rome and the Amalfi coast.
Italy remains on the UK's amber list, which means vaccinated Brits can also skip the 10-day quarantine when returning to England, and only need two Covid tests.
Brits who are yet to be vaccinated will have to self-isolate for the 10 days, or five if taking a Test to Release.
