Questions and answers about the entry ban to Sweden
The Government has decided to extend the entry bans for foreign citizens who cannot present a negative COVID-19 test result on arrival in Sweden. A temporary ban on non-essential travel to the EU via Sweden, introduced following a call from the European Council and the European Commission, has been in effect since March 2020. Since February it also includes a requirement of a negative COVID-19 test result for entry into Sweden. The ban includes certain exemptions. To travel to Sweden from countries outside the EU/ EEA, you must be covered by at least one of the exemptions from the entry ban and also be able to present a negative COVID-19 test or be exempt from the test requirement. These rules have been extended to apply until 31 August 2021. A separate entry ban with a testing requirement for entry from EEA states and certain other states has also been in force since February. To travel to Sweden from EEA states and certain other states, you must be able to present a negative COVID-19 test or be exempt from the test requirement. These rules have been extended to apply until 30 June 2021. However, as of 31 May 2021, no entry restrictions apply to travel from Denmark, Finland, Iceland and Norway.
