The existing ban for residents of Sweden, Portugal and the United Kingdom to come to Lithuania will remain in place this week.

Meanwhile foreigners coming from Belgium are still required to self-isolate for two weeks, Lithuania's Health Ministry said on Friday.

Lithuanian citizens are allowed to come from all countries, but will need to self-isolate for 14 days if they arrive from the four countries.

A few weeks ago, Lithuania decided to allow travel from European Economic Area (EEA) countries, as well as the UK and Switzerland, provided that the number of new Covid-19 cases over the last 14 days stayed below 15 per 100,000 people.

Travelers from countries with the incidence rate of 15 to 25 are required to self-isolate for two weeks.

As the rates were above 25 in Sweden, Portugal and the UK, foreigners from these countries are not allowed to come to Lithuania yet.

The list of ‘safe’ countries is updated every week.

Lithuania has yet to make a decision to let in travelers from non-EEA countries.
