COVID -19 Travel guidance on IATA website

After receiving many queries on the current travel regulations for Italy we would like to draw attention to an inaccurate translation on the IATA website which is increasingly creating confusion to individuals intending to travel to Italy.

The IATA COVID-19 Travel Regulations Map for Italy states that the current Covid-19 travel restrictions are not applied to "passengers traveling on BUSINESS". This is actually not in line with the guidelines issued by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, according to which essential travel to Italy is allowed only for proven WORK, urgent or health needs. Travellers exempted from restrictions are listed in the same website.
