Lithuania’s new high-risk nations list drops 10 from Europe

Lithuania removes isolation requirements

People arriving say, with a Lithuania tourist visa, from the following countries will no more need to practice self-isolation upon entering the country:

  • Germany
  • Sweden
  • Estonia
  • Liechtenstein
  • Poland
  • Iceland
  • Norway
  • Bulgaria
  • Serbia
  • Latvia

There’s also a new rule followed to categorize countries as low and high-risk. If the number of COVID-19 cases doesn’t go beyond 25 cases per 100,000 inhabitants during the 14 days counted back from the arrival date, those countries will be considered low-risk. Nationals of such countries coming with say, a visitor visa, will be exempted from measures like compulsory quarantine upon arrival in Lithuania.

Returnees from high-risk countries will be obliged to practice self-isolation. This is also applicable to those who have passed through risky countries before arriving in Lithuania. But those who traveled by air and haven’t left the airport transit area won’t have to undergo isolation.

It’s also required, since September 15, 2020, that those returning to Lithuania via any means of transport, by land, water, or air, must submit their personal information at the NVSC. For this, travelers will have to fill a form online on the NVSC website. Confirmation of completion of the form will reach the traveler before they travel to Lithuania.

In case the person has arrived in Lithuania in a car, that person must electronically register at NVSC within 12 hours of his/her return to the country.

The following countries aren’t currently in Lithuania’s list of high-risk countries:

  • The Gambia
  • Canada
  • The Grenadines
  • The Faroe Islands
  • Kyrgyzstan
  • Azerbaijan
  • Bangladesh
  • Saint Vincent
  • Ethiopia

What’s more, Lithuania has no plans to reopen its borders to Lithuanian citizens who are unmarried.
