Travel Information for Italy


From Monday 23 October 2023, visitors to some provinces in Italy (Rome, Latina and Lodi) will have to wait four weeks before donating.

This is due to evidence of Dengue virus infection being found in these areas.

We are asking donors due to visit Rome to please give before you go.

Alternatively, we’ll look forward to welcoming you four weeks after you return.

If you do become unwell during or after your visit, you may have to wait longer before donating – please do contact us about this.

  • For further information contact us online. Alternatively, you can email us on or call 0345 90 90 99 (9am-5pm, Mon-Fri).
