The current list of countries affected by the coronavirus infection (COVID-19) will continue without changes for yet another week. Liechtenstein and Switzerland and all the third countries remain listed. People arriving from or travelling through these countries will be required to self-isolate for 10 days or take a test for coronavirus (COVID-19) and get a negative result.

Arrivals from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of South Africa will continue to be subject to more stringent requirements as a result of coronavirus mutations detected in those countries.

Travellers from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of South Africa will not only have to be tested for coronavirus but also self-isolate for 14 days, regardless of the result of the test. The exemption applies only to certain professions (medical professionals, ICT and engineering professionals, transport workers, etc.), where testing is required but self-isolation is not necessary.

Arrivals from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of South Africa will not leave the place of isolation unless they need urgent medical assistance and have to go to a medical facility, or they have to go to a mobile point. People in isolation may go to a funeral, change the place of isolation, or go to a medical facility for other health care services with the permission of the National Public Health Centre (NPHC).

Subjected to isolation because of travelling from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of South Africa, foreigners and Lithuanian citizens living or working abroad and those who need to leave for health reasons may leave Lithuania for the country where they live, work or where health care will be provided before the lapse of the required period of isolation. The NPHC must be notified of the planned departure at least 24 hours before the planned departure from Lithuania.

Travellers who are required to test for a coronavirus can do so within 48 hours before the arrival in Lithuania or contact the services for testing in Lithuania within 24 hours after the arrival. You can make an appointment for free testing in Lithuania by calling the Hotline at 1808 or on the website. Testing is also possible in a private laboratory, but in this case, you will have to pay for it.

Foreigners arriving from third countries (except those arriving from the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the Republic of South Africa) will be required to self-isolate or take a test in Lithuania, as their testing evidence brought from their countries will not be valid. Please note that even if you have brought a negative testing result, you are nevertheless recommended to avoid social contacts and gatherings for 10 days from return to or arrival in Lithuania.

These requirements will not be applicable in the case of those transiting through the affected countries travelling by air through the affected countries when not leaving the airport transit area. The travellers will not be subject to testing or self-solation requirements.

The Ministry of Health notes that passengers travelling on international routes organised and operated by carriers as regular, special and charter services by all modes of transport must register on the website of the NPHC (https://keleiviams.nvsc.lt/lt/form) and present the confirmation of the completed electronic form (QR code) to the carrier before boarding the vehicle, and in other cases - they must register with the NPHC (https://keleiviams.nvsc.lt/lt/form) within 12 hours of returning / arriving in the Republic of Lithuania.

The list of affected countries is published every Friday to take effect on Monday for the duration of that week.
