Temporary entry ban to Sweden

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 has decided to extend the entry ban until 31 March 2021.

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