According to the Ordinance of the Ministry of Health on 16 April 2021, from 24 May, all passengers arriving to Italy from a foreign country will be required to fill in the dPLFs (Digital Passenger Locator Form) before entering on the Italian national territory.
To fill out the Passenger Locator Form in digital format, please follow these steps:
- Connect to the site EU Digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF) (euplf.eu)
- Follow the guided procedure to access dPLF
- Choose "Italy" as the destination country
- Register for the site by creating a personal account with user and password
- Fill in and send the dPLF following the guided procedure
Once you have submitted the form, you will receive at the email address indicated at the registration stage, the dPLF in pdf format and a QRcode that you will have to show at the time of boarding and/or anyone who is responsible for carrying out the checks. Alternatively, you can print a copy of the dPLF to show.
The dPLF must be completed and sent before entering Italy.
Because it is a legal obligation, failure to complete the dPLF will mean that local authorities will eventually reject visitors wishing to enter Italy.
