Lithuania has decided to lift the requirement of 14-day quarantine for every traveler arriving from any of 24 European countries. They will now be able to migrate overseas to the country for non-essential purposes.
On May 15, 2020, Lithuania has already lifted restrictions on those arriving from Latvia and Estonia. These travelers could be citizens or residents of those countries.
Come June 1, 2020, Lithuania will lift restrictions for residents and citizens of many countries in Schengen area and European Union. In these countries, a significant decrease in COVID-19 incidents are found. Cases are down to 15 per 100,000 citizens in the last 2 weeks.
The countries considered safe for now by Lithuania include:
- The Netherlands
- The Czech Republic
Nevertheless, people from countries that have an infection rate between 15 and 25 between every 100,000 people, can also arrive in Lithuania. But they will have to stay in self-isolation for 14 days. Spain, Malta, and Ireland are examples of these countries.
Among countries that have no permission to enter Lithuania are Sweden, the UK, Portugal, and Belgium. But Lithuanian citizens can return from these countries.
Lithuania will publish a revised list of countries to which it opens borders, on every Monday. This will be done by the State Commander of National Emergency Operations.
The country has resumed regular flights to Germany, Estonia, Netherlands, Norway, and Latvia. Flights will soon be resumed to Finland and Denmark too.
