05 Feb 2021

Starting 6 February, all Foreign Nationals aged 18 and above travelling to Sweden must present a negative COVID-19-test result, not more than 48 hours old, to be allowed entry into Sweden.

The Swedish Government took the decision on a compulsory negative COVID-19 test result to enter Sweden on 3 February, regardless of where they are arriving from.

The aim is to reduce the risk of spreading the new variants of the COVID-19 virus that have been detected in a number of countries.

The regulations will enter into force 6 February, i.e. at midnight on Friday, and will apply up to and including 31 March.
