Arrivals from Georgia, Sweden, Norway required to self-isolate in Lithuania

Lithuania’s Health Ministry has published an updated list of coronavirus-affected countries.

As of Monday, travellers arriving in Lithuania from Bulgaria, Sweden, Norway, Georgia, Canada, Tunisia, and the Faroe Islands will also be required to self-isolate.

In all, arrivals from 20 EU countries are now required to provide a prior Covid-19 test and to self-isolate for two weeks once in the country.

Under the current rules, non-residents coming to Lithuania from the affected countries need to have a negative Covid-19 test taken no earlier than 72 hours before departure, and to self-isolate for two weeks upon arrival.

Lithuanian residents and nationals only need to take a Covid-19 within three days after arriving in the country.

Although Estonia has reached more than 25 cases of Covid-19 per 100,000 people, the Baltic country has not been added to the list.

People that need to leave the country before the end of the self-isolation period have to inform the Lithuanian authorities no later than a day before departure (the form is available  here  ).

People coming to Lithuania will be required to fill out an  electronic form   and present the QR code before boarding their plane, bus, or ferry.

Those coming by private transport need to register with the National Public Health Centre within 12 hours or arrival.

The self-isolation period can be shortened by taking a coronavirus test on the eighth day of isolation. Upon the receipt of a negative result, the period can be cut down to 10 days.
