  • Lithuania Lithuania’s government has decided to abolish the requirement of quarantine for arrivals from 19 European countries after estimating that the COVID-19 situation in these regions has ameliorated in the past two weeks.

    Lithuania’s Ministry of Health has announced that citizens of the following states will be permitted to enter the country restriction-free, from June 14 until June 20:

    Austria
    Bulgaria
    The Czech Republic
    Estonia

    Even though all territories mentioned above are considered safe, citizens will be required to present a negative result of the COVID-19, not older than 72 hours upon their arrival, except for persons vaccinated against the disease, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    According to a statement published by Lithuania’s Ministry of Health, children under age seven will also be exempted from the self-isolation requirement. Furthermore, children from age seven to 16 will not need to be quarantined if they present a negative result of the COVID-19 test upon their entry.

    As for arrivals from countries that have recently been profoundly affected by the disease, the self-isolation requirement remains mandatory.

    “Arrival from countries subject to enhanced communicable disease control measures – Brazil, India, and South Africa – will require both testing and isolation. Both vaccinated, and diseased individuals will need to isolate and perform the test. In addition, children will also need to be isolated, regardless of their age or the outcome of the COVID-19 test,” the statement clarifies.

    The Ministry urges all persons to avoid unnecessary travel to the countries mentioned above due to the increased number of infections lately reported, especially the Delta variant that has rapidly been spread.

  • Lithuania Lithuania has facilitated the travel process for all vaccinated people against the Coronavirus by issuing EU vaccination passports.

    Even though the EU has unfolded its plans to launch such documents for all EU citizens as well as for specific categories of passengers from third countries by July 1, about ten countries have already made such a system functional by early June, a month ahead of the deadline, SchengenVisaInfo.com reports.

    According to Lithuanian Health Vice Minister Zivilie Simonaityte, the first 300,000 COVID-19 certificates have already been generated in the country.

    “Approximately 300,000 Lithuanian residents who either have had the virus or have been vaccinated can obtain the digital certificate as the process of uploading new data to the e-health system continues without interruptions. This process continues all the time,” Simonaityte pointed out.

    Based on the current rules imposed by Lithuania’s government, travellers are exempted from additional restrictions upon their arrival if they:

    received the second dose of the Pfizer vaccine
    two weeks after they have taken the second dose of the Moderna vaccine
    about two weeks after they received the second dose of the AstraZeneca vaccine
    two weeks after they got vaccinated with the only doze of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine
    Exempted from the restrictions are also people who have fully recovered from the virus if the period from the confirmation of their COVID-19 test result does not surpass 180 days.

    If people do not follow the requirements mentioned above, they will be obliged to present a negative result of the Coronavirus test, not older than 72 hours, upon their arrival in Lithuania. In addition, they will be obliged to comply with quarantine requirements.

    The test must be taken within 72 hours prior to arrival.
