- The Swedish government will repeal pandemic-related advice against non-essential travel worldwide on October 1, 2021 for Swedish residents
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs has announced that from 1 October 2021 it will provide advice on travel to all countries. This enables easier travel for Swedish citizens. The government urges its citizens to be aware of travel restrictions that remain for countries they can enter when traveling.
What are the changes?
On 14 March 2020, the Swedish government had announced that Swedes would avoid unnecessary travel to all countries in the world to prevent the transmission of COVID-19. This new change makes it possible for Swedish citizens and residents to participate in non-essential travel again, with the approval of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs. This makes it possible for individuals to travel without the possibility of insurance issues, which was previously an issue for those who went against the Swedish government’s recommendation.
The Ministry is prepared to reintroduce pandemic-related advice if the situation deteriorates significantly. Continue to control the Swedish government website for future updates and messengers website for further information.
