    Moreover, PCR tests must be performed 72 hours before departure, and antigen tests are considered valid only if they were carried out within 48 hours before travelling to Lithuania.

    Poland and Czechia remain on Lithuania’s green list, meaning that non-vaccinated travellers from these countries don’t have to quarantine or test before arrival but must perform a test upon reaching Lithuania.

    However, it is mandatory that everyone wanting to travel to Lithuania, regardless of the vaccination status or country of origin, must complete the health declaration known as the Maritime Health Declaration to the National Center for Public Health (NVSC) 48 hours before travelling.

    More information on COVID-19 related restrictions to public places and services in Lithuania is available on theKoronaStop website
    *Testing positive for COVID-19 in Lithuania: If you test positive for COVID-19 with an antigen test, you should immediately register for a PCR test. Call the Lithuanian COVID-19 hotline on +370 37367 963 to request a COVID-19 PCR test. The hotline is open daily between 8am and 11pm. You must self-isolate until you receive your results and instructions from public health officials, even if you are asymptomatic.
    If you test positive for COVID-19 with a PCR test, you must self-isolate for 14 days.
    While in isolation, you must:
    • not leave your place of isolation without the permission of a healthcare professional;
    • not go to the shops;
    • not attend face to face public services;
    • not have guests/visitors;
    • organise for essential provisions to be delivered by friends, family or delivery services;

    The Lithuanian Government advises against self-isolating in properties with those who are not isolating. If this is not possible, you should stay in separate, well-ventilated rooms, restrict your movement within the home and minimise use of common spaces. Children who test positive for COVID-19 may isolate with a parent or guardian, but they must also adhere to self-isolation rules. You will be expected to cover the cost of your self-isolation accommodation, if you are unable to stay in a private property.
    While in isolation, you should expect to be contacted by Lithuanian health officials. They will ask you to provide:
    • A list of individuals with whom you have been in close contact in the 14 days leading up to your first symptoms or to your day of testing, if you are asymptomatic. Close contacts are considered to be those people with whom you have been less than two metres apart for 15 minutes or more, without facemasks; and
    • A list of locations that you have visited over the previous 14 days and the time of your visit.
    If you have a pet, but are unable to arrange alternative pet care, you may leave your place of isolation for up to 15 minutes at a time to walk your pet. This exception only applies to individuals who have no COVID-19 symptoms.
    British nationals needing to temporarily break isolation, who meet one of therequirements set out by the Lithuanian Government , must notify the NVSC in advance. You do not need to inform the NVSC if you are breaking isolation for a COVID-19 PCR test or for emergency medical treatment.
    *Be prepared for your plans to change: No travel is risk-free during COVID. Countries may further restrict travel or bring in new rules at short notice, for example due to a new COVID-19 variant. Check with your travel company or airline for any transport changes which may delay your journey home.
    If you test positive for COVID-19, you may need to stay where you are until you test negative. You may also need to seek treatment there.
    Plan ahead and make sure you: can access money; understand what your insurance will cover; can make arrangements to extend your stay and be away for longer than planned

  • 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
    Greece’s regions of Crete, Rhodes, Corfu, Kefalonia, Zakynthos
    Iceland
    Spain’s regions of Tenerife, Majorca, Gran Canaria
    Cyprus
    Poland
    Luxembourg
    Malta
    Portugal
    France (except the area of French Guiana)
    Romania
    Slovakia
    Finland
    Switzerland
    Hungary
    Germany
    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.

    *From within the EU:

    Lithuania adopts its own national classification of risk areas, hence travel restrictions for Lithuania are not based on the common “EU Traffic Lights” map.

     

    Is a coronavirus test required?

    All travellers arriving from countries listed as risk areas are subject to the requirement for a pre-departure negative PCR test.
    The test must be taken within 72 hours prior to arrival.

    Children aged 15 and under are exempt.

    The certificate can be in one of the official languages of the European Union.

    vaccination-benefits Provisions for vaccinated people

    Travellers who have been fully vaccinated for COVID-19 are exempted from providing a negative COVID-19 test. A certificate of vaccination is needed.

    Also, those holding a medical certificate confirming that they had coronavirus are exempt from testing and quarantine. The diagnosis should be confirmed by a positive PCR test, and maximum 180 days may have passed since the positive testing.

     

    Is a quarantine required?

    Travellers arriving from countries that are listed as risk areas should self-isolate for 10 days from the day of arrival in the Republic of Lithuania (regardless of the negative test result). The isolation period may be shortened after a second negative PCR test performed no earlier than on day 7 of self-isolation (the test is carried out at own expenses).

    Depending on the local epidemiological situation, travellers from some countries face stricter measures during the isolation period.

To leave Lithuania for the country of residence or work before the end of self-isolation period, a notification must be sent to NPHC 24 hours before departure.

    Travellers that can provide proof of full vaccination or recent recovery of COVID-19 infection are not required to quarantine.
