Travel update: Lithuania adds Belgium, Ireland to red list

BNS, LRT.lt2021.07.26 10:01

Lithuania has updated its weekly travel restrictions, adding Ireland, Belgium, and most of Greek islands to the red list.

Arrivals from countries on the red list must self-isolate for ten days and get tested for Covid-19 unless the people have recovered from the coronavirus in the past 180 days or have been vaccinated.

The Czech Republic and Italy moved from the green zone to the yellow one, meaning that travellers will be required to have tests done before and upon their arrival in Lithuania.

Those arriving from Norway will need only a pre-departure Covid-19 test because the country is shifting to the green zone as of Monday.

The general rules for arrivals from abroad remain unchanged: those coming from countries listed as red and gray must get tested before their journey and to self-isolate for ten days on arrival.

Travelers arriving from yellow-zone countries are required to get tested before their trip and take a second test between days 3 and 5 after arrival. Testing can be done at a mobile testing site after registering online (1808.lt) or by phone (1808).

Those from green-zone countries are only required to have a pre-departure test.

These requirements do not apply to travellers who have a certificate that they have recovered from the coronavirus, valid for 180 days after the positive test result, and those who are fully vaccinated with at least 14 days after their second shot.

All travellers must also fill in a questionnaire before coming to Lithuania.

The full list of rules can be found on the website of the Health Ministry, as well as the government’s dedicated coronavirus website. The list of self-isolation rules can be found here.
