Do I need a visa for Rome?
No – if you’re a British citizen travelling to Rome with a valid passport, then you won’t need to apply for a visa.
Healthcare in Rome
British citizens should have their free European Health Insurance Card (EHIC) or Global Health Insurance Card (GHIC), which can be used in Rome. This will cover any necessary treatments you may receive at public healthcare centres or hospitals on your trip. However, it’s important to remember to still have travel insurance in place to be able to cover the costs of any unexpected medical treatment the EHIC/GHIC might not cover, or repatriation costs. Find more information about healthcare in Rome here.
If you have pre-existing medical conditions you must declare these before you buy your policy to ensure you’re fully covered.
