The Ministry for Foreign Affairs decided yesterday to lift the advice against non-essential travel to Lithuania. The decision comes into force today.

The easing of restrictions that have applied to Swedish travellers has been taken into account in the assessment leading to the decision.

Under Lithuania’s new provisions, Swedish travellers will not be required to self-isolate following arrival in Lithuania if they are able present a negative COVID-19 test or take a test after arrival. Nor will Swedish travellers be required to self-isolate if they can provide a medical certificate of recovery from COVID-19 in the last three months.

In recent weeks, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs has lifted the advice against non-essential travel to several countries in Europe. This does not mean that the situation is back to normal. Local rules, restrictions and quarantine requirements affecting Swedish travellers can be re-introduced at short notice if the situation changes.

A high degree of personal responsibility must be taken by travellers regardless of where they travel. Before travelling, every traveller should prepare thoroughly, keep well informed about the entry rules that apply and follow the advice and instructions of local authorities when abroad.
