Coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak – updated situation in Italy (25 May 2020, 11:55)

Until 2 June, foreign drivers operating in Italy must still certify that they are employed and currently working as drivers. The Transport Ministry did state that foreign drivers working in Italy were required to carry a self-declaration (in Italian) confirming their understanding of the provisions of the emergency situation, their full name and reason for being in the country, however a "reduced" version of the self-certification (shown in the link) must now be used.
