ETIAS for British citizens will be valid for:

  • 3 years or until the passport expires
  • Multiple trips to Italy and other Schengen states
  • Business, tourism, and transit

Other ways in which travelling from the UK to Italy have changed since Brexit:

  • UK passports should be valid for at least 6 months and must not be more than 10 years old
  • Visitors from the UK cannot use EU border gates when entering Italy
  • British citizens may be asked for proof of funds or onward travel
  • A visa is required to work in Italy or stay for longer than 3 months

Travellers should also check how changes to mobile roaming charges and medical cover affect their trip to Italy.

Recommended insurance to travel to Italy

UK citizens can continue to use their European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) until its expiry date.

Travellers can use the EHIC to receive state-provided healthcare if they get sick or have an accident whilst in Italy or another EU member state.

As a result of Brexit, the EHIC is being replaced by the Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC).

Neither the EHIC nor the GHIC is a substitute for travel insurance. UK nationals should take out insurance for Italy that includes coverage for medical costs.
