entering italy

anyone have experience entering italy since friday? looking for examples of acceptable 'necessity and urgency'.

basically i want to change my summer tyres and the winters are in italy. don't need to come into contact with anyone but expect grief from border.

Re: entering italy

Go to the border and ask.

I think my wife tried, no go.

Re: entering italy

I was in a similar situation months ago when the border to Germany was closed. An absolute no go to pick them up and the dealer in Germany could not drop them off. Only options were to wait or find someone who crossed the border into Switzerland for work who could bring them.

Do you know anyone who lives in Italy and works in Switzerland ?

Friends crossed to/from Lake Como via Ticino as their ultimate destination at the weekend with no issues so a lack of consistency with the border guards I guess.

Re: entering italy

Sunday just gone my son went to a rally near Padova. He had downloaded the necessary paperwork but was asked to show nothing. Swiss plates, Swiss citizens and neither going in or out did he encounter any problems.


We also noticed driving to Chiasso at the weekend that many borders are unmanned, so as long as you have the paperwork, you should be OK.

Re: entering italy

thanks. will give it a try tomorrow and report back. i suspect it will be like the last lockdown when it was just deserted. the only questions i had then were entering back into switzerland.

getting someone else to bring the tyres over wouldn't help because I'd still need to fit them and the machines are in italy along with the tyres. i don't trust tyre fitters to balance them probably.
