As of March 10, people coming to Lithuania will need to present a negative Covid-19 test taken no more than 72 hours before arrival, the government decided on Wednesday.  

The new requirements applies to “all modes of transport” and “serological antibody tests will not be valid for entry”, according to the government's resolution. The PCR test result will have to be translated into Lithuanian, English, or Russian.

Exemptions apply to crew members, travellers transiting Lithuania, people under 16 years old, and those who have been vaccinated or if they have recovered from the virus. People in the latter group will have to show a “positive SARS-CoV-2 PCR test or antigen test result" as proof.

Currently, travellers must show a negative test result taken up to 48 hours before arrival or get tested once in Lithuania.
