  Mandatory quarantine  
  Proof of relationship  

I am an American doing my Master’s in London, UK dating an Italian citizen. After 8 months apart he and I had brief meetings in both the UK and Italy in September before borders started to tighten once again.

In October I traveled from the UK to Italy for 10 days to celebrate our 3 year anniversary. I had to take a COVID test to enter Italy (also could’ve taken one there) and all I needed to do was to fill out a document stating my important reasoning for being there aka dating an Italian citizen. I entered with my American passport which was enough for entrance since I was coming from within Europe where I had been for over 2 weeks.

Will fly from the US to see him after Christmas, which is a completely different experience so I’m hoping for the best!
