New access rules

In compliance with Law Decree no.229 dated December 30, 2021, from January 10 to March 30, 2022, to enter exhibitions it is compulsory to have a Super green pass (obtained following vaccination, recovery or one single dose of vaccine, in case of recovery from Covid-19).

As far as operators coming from extra-European countries are concerned, vaccination certificates issued by national health authorities are considered as equivalent to the Super green pass only upon vaccination with vaccines authorized by EMA, the European Medicines Agency (i.e. Comirnaty by Pfizer-BioNtech, Moderna, Vaxzevria, Janssen, Nuvaxovid) or with equivalent vaccines, as listed below

1. vaccines whose holder of trading permission is the same as in the European Union (ref. attachment 1 of the Circular of our Ministry of Health dated 23rd September 2021);
2. Covishield (Serum Institute of India), produced under licence by AstraZeneca;
3. R-CoVI (R-Pharm), produced under licence by AstraZeneca;
4. Covid-19 vaccine-recombinant (Fiocruz), produced under licence by AstraZeneca.

Those who have been vaccinated with Sinovac or Sputnik, cannot obtain the Super Green Pass, which is the sanitary document indispensable for access and to enter hotels, bars and restaurants, as well.

In some extra-European countries, it is possible to get a booster dose of a vaccine accepted in Europe, just to the purpose of permitting international travels. Therefore, we suggest getting information about this solution, because, unlike September 2021, it will no longer be possible to enter the exhibition centre presenting the negative outcome of an antigenic or molecular test.

Note: the certificate of recovery issued by extra-European authorities is only considered equivalent to the Italian one, for use on our territory, if it was issued by the authorities in charge in Canada, Japan or in the USA.
