The Circular of the Ministry of Health of 23 September 2021 recognizes the validity in Italy of the COVID vaccines administered abroad, including Oman.
Vaccination certifications issued by Omani health authorities with one of the following vaccines are recognized by the Italian authorities as equivalent to the green COVID-19 certification for the purposes provided for by law:
Janssen-Johnson & Johnson
Covishield (Serum Institute of India)
R-CoVI ( R-Pharm)
Covid-19 vaccine-recombinant (Fiocruz)
Omani certifications are accepted in paper and / or digital format, provided they are written at least in English. If the certificate was issued exclusively in Arabic, it must be accompanied by a sworn translation.
The temporal validity of vaccination certificates is the same as for the green COVID-19 certification (EU digital COVID certificate) issued by the Italian authorities, that is normally 12 months.
