You can check requirements via the Italian Ministry of Health website: Novel coronavirus (salute.gov.it)  You should also check the regulations your airline or transport provider may have in place in relation to pre travel Covid-19 testing and mask etiquette.

All travellers should follow the advice of the local authorities on how best to protect themselves and others. Be aware that safety measures in place may change quickly to control the virus.

FAQs 

How is the Annual Meeting being adapted this year due to the COVID pandemic?

– we have revised our terms and conditions so that delegates can book with confidence

– we are organizing a hybrid meeting this year so that delegates and Industry partners can attend both in-person in Barcelona and/or virtually via the EACTS virtual platform.

Can you advise on travel restrictions and accommodation to Barcelona?

The regulations regarding international travel are subject to change on a regular basis.  We are carefully monitoring this to ensure that we can provide our delegates and Industry partners with up-to-date information.

If social distancing rules are still in place in October, how will you ensure safe distances are applied?

We will of course, adhere to the advice provided by the Government. However, in any case, our team is planning the Annual Meeting with social distancing in mind. The health and safety of exhibitors and delegates is our primary concern, and the venue will be set up accordingly. In practice this may mean for instance limiting attendance to some sessions, re-organising the way people gather in the session rooms, exhibition area and other parts of the venue during the event.

Proof of full Covid-19 vaccination will be required for all in-person entry to the 36th EACTS Annual Meeting. Documentation will be required to be uploaded prior to the event.  If proof of vaccination is unavailable, then proof of a Negative PCR test is required.

Yes, this is currently compulsory in for enclosed spaces and on public transport.  Exceptions: due to shortness of breath, disability or dependence, during sports, eating or drinking, on beaches and in swimming pools and in co-existing stable groups.
