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. The Government today decided to extend the entry ban until 31 October 2020.
The temporary entry ban came into force on 19 March and initially applied for 30 days. It was subsequently extended following European Commission recommendations. The Government has now decided to further extend the entry ban until 31 October 2020.
More information on who is exempt from entry ban is available here, under “Who is exempt from entry ban”.
The COVID-19 virus is a matter of international concern that requires cross-border cooperation and coordinated measures. The decision on 27 August is in line with the Council of the European Union recommendation to EU Member States.
