As of 31 October 2021, the Swedish government has extended the travel ban to Sweden from countries outside and within the EU / EEA due to the covid-19 pandemic.
For travelers within the EU / EEA region, in order to enter Sweden, they must present a digital EU covid certificate or equivalent certificate showing that they have either been vaccinated against covid-19, tested negative within 72 hours before arrival or recovered from COVID- 19 in the last six months. The entry ban applies until 30 November 2021.
For travelers outside the EU / EEA region, they may only travel into Sweden if they are covered by one of the exemptions from the entry ban and may also show a negative covid-19 test result. This ban has been extended to 31 January 2021.
Exemptions from the entry ban and the test requirements when entering Sweden will apply to persons who can present a vaccine certificate issued in the USA, Guernsey, the Isle of Man or Jersey.
