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

On 25 June the Government decided to extend the temporary entry ban to the EU via Sweden until 7 July 2020. On June 4 the Government adopted certain amendments clarifying the ban. 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.
