Sweden confirms to ease its entry rules


The Government of Sweden has announced that travelers from third countries are no longer subject to entry rules upon arrival in Sweden as the latter has decided to lift all its restrictions.

According to a press release that has been issued by the Ministry of Justice of Sweden, travelers from non-European Union/European Economic Area countries can now enter Sweden even if they do not hold a valid vaccination, recovery, or test certificate.


“As of 1 April 2022, people traveling to Sweden from countries outside the EU/EEA are no more required to present a negative COVID-19 test, a vaccination certificate, or any other type of certificate, The statement from the Swedish Ministry of Justice reads.

This means that everyone, regardless of their vaccination or recovery status, can now enter Sweden for all kinds of purposes without being required to follow additional entry rules.
Sweden introduced a temporary entry ban for travelers from non-EU/EEA countries back in March 2020.

However, after taking keeping in record the current situation and concluding that the virus no longer causes serious health implications, the Swedish authorities decided to follow the example of some other EU countries and lift their measures.

“The government has declared not to increase the entry ban from third countries. This will make it much easier for everybody who has been prevented from coming to Sweden in recent years because of the pandemic,” said Minister of Justice and Home Affairs Morgan Johnson, commenting on the elimination of entry rules for third-country travelers.

Sweden has already lifted all of its entry rules for EU/EEA travelers too. Travelers from the EU/EEA have been able to enter Sweden restriction-free since February 9. For almost two months now, they have been exempt from all the entry rules.
