Passengers entering Italy: start of the new procedure of localization with use of the EU Digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF)

Starting from 24 May 2021, all passengers wishing to enter Italy arriving from foreign countries or territories included in Lists B, C, D and E of Annex 20 of the Prime Ministerial Decree of 2 March 2021 (which include Ethiopia, South Sudan and Djibouti), regardless of the duration of their stay, are required to submit a digital Passenger Locator Form (dPLF) before entering the Italian borders, following the instructions provided below:

  1. Go to https://app.euplf.eu/#/
  2. Follow the guided procedure to access the dPLF
  3. Choose "Italy" as your destination country
  4. Register on the website by creating a personal account with user and password (it is necessary to do this only the first time)
  5. Fill in and send the dPLF following the guided procedure.

Once the form has been submitted, the passenger will receive the dPLF to the e-mail address indicated during registration in pdf and QRcode format. The passenger must show the dPLF directly from his/her smartphone (in digital format) at boarding and to whoever is in charge of carrying out the controls. Alternatively, the passenger may print a copy of the dPLF to show at boarding.

The dPLF must be completed and submitted before boarding. However, the field concerning the seat number assigned on the means of transport can always be modified.

One form must be completed for each adult passenger; if minors are present, they may be recorded on the accompanying adult's form. In the case of unaccompanied minors, the dPLF must be completed by the guardian before departure.

Completion of the dPLF replaces the filling of the paper declaration form referred to in article 50, paragraph 1 of the Italian Prime Ministerial Decree of 2 March 2021. In exceptional cases, i.e. only in case of technological impediments, it will be possible to fill in the paper declaration form available here: https://www.esteri.it/mae/resource/doc/2021/05/modulo_rientro_sintetico_14_maggio.pdf.

For further information, please visit the page of the European Digital Passenger Locator Form, as well as the circular of 15 May 2021 of the Directorate General for Prevention of the Italian Ministry of Health.
