ROME - Italy will remove all Covid-linked restrictions on international visitors from the European Union (EU) from 1 February, except the requirement to carry a "Green Pass" - a certificate of vaccination, negative test result, or immunity through having had the virus.

Roberto Speranza, the health minister, also gave Italians the go-ahead to travel once again to Cuba, Singapore, Turkey, Thailand (the island of Phuket), Oman, and French Polynesia.
