Information about the corona virus in Sweden including travel information

TRAVEL TO SWEDEN: As of 21 January, foreign citizens age 18 and above need to document that they do not have an active Covid-19 infection in order to enter Sweden, or present the EU Covid Certificate or equivalent when entering from Lithuania. TRAVEL TO LITHUANIA: All travelers 16 years or older should present a negative Covid-19 test taken within 72 hours (PCR) or 48 hours (antigen) before entry to Lithuania, or a document from a health care facility confirming that a person has recovered from Covid-19 or a vaccination certificate proving that vaccination has been completed under the full vaccination schedule. 7-day self-isolation is mandatory (self-isolation is not required for those fully vaccinated or with past disease). PCR test on the 3rd day of arrival is recommended for all travelers. Please be aware that the situation might change quickly and it is important to follow the official announcements.


Amendments to the entry ban from January 21

19 Jan 2022

The Swedish Government decided to revert to the entry restrictions that applied prior to 28 December 2021. This means that the requirement for a negative COVID-19 result from a test conducted within 48 hours of arrival will no longer apply from 21 January.
