Extension of temporary entry ban to Sweden until 31 August 2020 and easing of restrictions for more travellers

To mitigate the effects of the spread of COVID-19 and reduce the outbreak, a temporary ban on entry to the EU via Sweden is in force. On 2 July the Government decided to extend the entry ban until 31 August 2020. At the same time, the Government decided to ease the restrictions for more travellers.

This applies if you wish to visit Sweden and are a citizen of a country outside the EU.
