Extension of temporary entry ban to Sweden until 31 August 2020 and easing of restrictions for more travellers

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. On 2 July the Government decided to extend the entry ban until 31 August 2020. At the same time, the Government decided to ease the restrictions for more travellers. 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.

    Jansson sits somewhere between Tom Waits and the Jon Spencer Blues Explosion, but alone on stage, with his guitars, amplifiers and drums. It’s pure nordic noir and it sounds earthy and that’s rather appropriate, since he’ll perform in Meinier/ Geneva after an aperitif of local produce.

    Little Aston has a big heart. Especially for stones. Big, small, cold or sad, no stone is safe from him and needs his affection. A story about seeing and appreciating the value in little things. But also how easy it is to love each other.
