EU Digital Passenger Locator Form

Hello, my husband and I are going to Italy on September 9. Landing in Milan. I filled out the EU digital passenger form for myself and listed my husband as my travel companion. Do I need to do a separate form form for my husband?

We're heading to Italy in a couple of weeks and we read the Italian Protocols as EACH adult needs a separate form. From their website, under TRAVELING PROTOCOLS:

Italy

Important information
Passengers entering Italy are currently needed to complete a Passenger Locator Form via the EUdPLF application (https://app.euplf.eu/).

Information for travelers with Italy as destination country:
- All passengers wishing to enter Italy, via all means of transportation, will be required to complete the digital PLF (https://app.euplf.eu), prior to entering the country.
- Domestic flights do not need dPLF
- One form must be completed for each adult passenger; accompanied minors can be registered on the form of the accompanying adult. In the case of unaccompanied minors, the dPLF must be completed by the parent or legal guardian before departure.
- Check the Italian Ministry of Health for further information:

Yes each adult must have their own form. Some members of the eu allow you to use the family section of the form, Italy does not.

redbarryfan, we’re heading to Italy a week and a half after you. Two days ago, I filled out my DPL, listed my husband as my travel companion, and thought we were set with that one form. He looked again and, as noted above, realized he needed to fill out his own form. He listed me as his travel companion, so the authorities can cross-reference each form. Now waiting for our QR codes. Have a great trip!

We too are leaving in about a week. I filled out one form and listed my husband as my traveling companion. So I guess I need to go on line and do another one for him just to be safe. Also - I listed each flight - we go from San Antonio - Atlanta - Amsterdam - Naples. When I checked the box on the return trip home as my final leg of the journey (Atlanta - San Antonio) - it changes my destination country back to Italy instead of United States. This confused me -- anyone else experienced this or have any advice/suggestions? I went ahead and completed it and printed it off, because it said one box had to checked as my final leg.

I was trying to figure this out by reading the manual -- do I just complete the form for the initial trip to Naples - I don't think i need to include the flights on the return trip back to the states. Am I correct?

  • I don't think i need to include the flights on the return trip back to the states. Am I correct?*

Correct, the concern is your arrival in Italy and your first location you will be staying. You do need to show all legs of your flight though, from origin to arrival at your destination.

Thanks so much! After I thought about it, it made more sense to me to complete it that way. Too many things to think about these days!

I have not had this problem. I did it for myself and my husband. I would start fresh, and follow the prompts. Start with REGISTER.

I did have to 'log out' after I did mine to begin the form for my husband. Good Luck.

It's all in the manual: You each need to fill out a form. Only accompanied children can be listed on an adult's form.

Thanks so much for all the assistance from everyone. I printed off both forms (one for myself and one for my husband) so hopefully everything is correct. Just have one question for those traveling -- we leave Saturday, the 11th, and I just noticed another article I was reading mentioned an "Entry Form" as well as the PLF. Has anyone else seen a requirement for this form?

Oh - I just continued reading - it says the PLF replaces the self-declaration entry form made to the transport operator.

We are currently in Castelrotto in the Dolomites. Each adult needs to fill out a PLF. I filled out mine first, then my husbands. They needed more info with mine, then when I did my husbands. Delta looked at it prior to departing for Venice from Atlanta. I printed the form and showed Delta that, rather than searching for it on my phone.

To mjimport: we were doing that late at night, and I just now saw your question. We actually got the QR codes about 40 seconds later, I’m told. I didn’t see it ‘til next morning, but my spouse noticed his almost immediately.

Now if only we could obtain Italian Green Pass QR’s before arriving in Italy, that would be nice, but apparently not possible.

I've completed mine but it defaults to the account that I set up when I start to fill out a form for my husband. Is this acceptable or do I need to create a new account for him?

Thanks! We leave for Croatia tomorrow but I figured I'd do this before we go so that I had the printout when we travel to Italy.

Never mind. Disregard my question above. I figured out that I needed to log out of the site and then I was able to create a separate account for my husband.

All set! Forms done for entry to Croatia and a PLF for transmitting Belgium. We travel by ferry to Puglia 2+ weeks later, so that form is now done and printed!

Off tomorrow!

All this hassle and they never even checked for it. Things are pretty relaxed in Italy, especially compared to France.

Italy never said that they would check either the ePLF or the negative vaccine report, they delegated responsibility for that to the airlines.

At boarding, they wanted to see our test reports, then asked if we submitted the ePLF. They were not interested in actually looking at the ePLF and had no way to scan the QR code.

The ePLF is just a record of flights and movement prior to Italy, as well as travel companions. It would only be looked at if the airlines reported a positive case on a flight you were on. At that point, if you filled it out wrong, then it might be an issue.
