The list of countries most affected by the coronavirus infection (COVID-19) was updated on Friday, 7 August, to take effect as of 10 August. Territories are deemed to be virus-affected, where coronavirus incidence rate exceeds 16 cases per 100 000 population in the last 14 days.

Given the deteriorating epidemiological situation in Turkey, Poland, the Netherlands, Iceland, Cyprus, San Marino and other countries from other continents, these countries have been included in the list of affected countries.

Canada, Mauritania, Congo and Madagascar have been removed from the list

Foreign nationals arriving from the countries with the incidence rate above 16 cases are required to stay in isolation for 14 days, while isolation and testing for the coronavirus infection are mandatory to those arriving from the third countries included in the list of the affected countries. Isolation premises, transportation to isolation premises, transportation to the testing site for the coronavirus infection, and testing for the coronavirus infection for foreigners arriving in Lithuania for work or with special permits shall be provided and paid for by the employer, the inviting person, or foreigners themselves.

Lithuanian citizens returning from countries where the incidence rate exceeds 16 cases are required to stay in isolation for 14 days.

These measures also apply in the cases where persons have travelled through the affected countries in transit (by car, public transport, etc.), with the exception of travel by air without leaving the airport transit area.

Travellers returning or arriving by land transport from the countries on the list of the affected countries must register within 12 hours by submitting their details to the National Public Health Centre. Those arriving at airports and seaports will be required to complete a paper form on site or provide confirmation of registration with the National Public Health Centre. The same applies for arrivals of both Lithuanians and foreigners with entry permit, when coming back from these countries. 

The list of most affected countries is subject to weekly updates depending on the epidemiological situation.
