Re: New biometric card

We provided our own photos, which turned out to be fine. The problem was with the gadget at the Questura for recording fingerprints. I suspect that the one my wife used was so smeared with antiviral...

Re: New biometric card

I got a phone call a couple of weeks ago from the Questura to say that my wife and I needed to go back for new mugshots. When we turned up I was handed my card; and she wasn't photographed but...

Re: Driving from UK to Italy July 2021

Hard to predict what the situation will be a couple of months ahead. Since we're planning to do something similar, my hope is that the fully vaccinated won't have to quarantine on arrival in Italy,...

Re: Visiting UK

Re: Visiting UK

Yes. Frustrating that different countries have different rules for the same thing. I've just had to fly back to the UK for a couple of days. I'm fully vaccinated. To enter the UK I need a pre-flight...

Re: Visiting UK

Day 2 test is supposed to be a PCR one, I'm afraid. The reason given is that only PCR tests are able to identify the genomic structure of infected samples and hence new variants. I'm not sure that...

Re: Visiting UK

The test doesn't have to be a PCR test. It can also be an antigen test. Lots of pharmacies do them, and all the ones round us that do them will produce a certificatein English

Re: Quarantine

As from 19 July people travelling to the UK who have been double-vaccinated by the NHS won't have to quarantine. Your friend is right: for the time being other double-vaccinated people (including...

Re: Travel Uk-Italy for s.o who's had Covid

There's no legal obstacle so far as the UK is concerned to travelling to Italy. There's just Government advice; and people can make up their own minds about how much weight to give it.
So far as...

Just arrived back in Italy (and nobody wanted to see our Covid test results or any other documents en route). Great to be here! But one thing that struck us was that prices of everything in the shops...

That's reassuring - though we need to look carefully at the new rules when they are published (especially as the Minister's tweet indicates that an antigen test will suffice). If there's no...

Re: TALK THE TALK. ITALIAN LANGUAGE QUESTIONS.
