Lithuania

October 24, 2020

General Restrictions: COVID-19 test are not required for passengers or crew to arrive in Lithuania.

According to the Ministry’s web page as of 26 Oct it will no longer be required for passengers to have a negative COVID-19 test, and it will be the passenger’s decision if they want to self isolate or provide a certificate that they have had a negative COVID test. If the Negative COVID 19 test certificate is provided then self isolation will not be needed.

Every week, Lithuania publishes a list of affected countries (with a coronavirus infection (COVID-19) incidence rate of more than 25 cases per 100,000 population over the last 14 days).  The list includes countries mostly outside the European Union and the European Economic Area (EEA).

The entry of foreigners into the Republic of Lithuania from those countries shall be limited to exceptional cases and those entering Lithuania will be subject to 14-day self-isolation and must produce proof of having tested negative for COVID-19 using a polymerase chain reaction (PCR) test taken no more than 72 hours prior to arrival.​

Self-isolation requirement for foreign arrivals depends on the original point of travelling. This means that if people have proof that they are travelling from a country from which isolation on return or arrival is not required, they do not need to self-isolate even if they have travelled through other countries. Failing to have such proof, travelers will fall subject to requirements applicable for the last visited country, from which they have come to Lithuania.
