Extension of temporary entry ban to the EU via Sweden due to COVID-19

Today the Government decided to extend the temporary entry ban to the EU via Sweden until 15 June. The decision was taken following a recommendation of the European Commission. The aim of the entry ban is, as previously, to mitigate the effects of the spread of the SARS-CoV-2 virus and reduce the outbreak of COVID-19. Due to the coronavirus and the temporary entry ban to Sweden, the Swedish Migration Agency has decided that the majority of visa applications will be rejected. This applies if you wish to visit Sweden and are a citizen of a country outside the EU.

Entry ban to Japan

As of 27 March there is an entry ban to Japan for all foreign citizens who have visited Sweden, and many other countries, during the past 14 days. On 3 April, the list of countries to which there is an entry ban was expanded. This means that Swedish citizens who have visited these countries are not allowed to enter Japan. Swedish citizens who live in Japan – even those with a permanent residence permit – cannot return to Japan, if the date of departure from Japan is on or later than 3 April.
