23 February, 2022

As of today, 23 February, there is no longer a list of countries affected by COVID-19, but the requirements for travellers set out in other legislation remain in place. That is why we give here summarised information on mandatory requirements for travellers and other travel-related recommendations. 

Travellers from European Economic Area (EEA) countries (EU, Iceland, Liechtenstein, Norway), the Swiss Confederation, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, the Principality of Andorra, the Principality of Monaco, the Republic of San Marino, and the Holy See (Vatican City State) will no longer be subject to any travel-related COVID-19 management restrictions. This means that arrivals from these countries will no longer be required to test for COVID-19 or complete a passenger form on the website of the National Public Health Centre (NPHC) irrespective of their vaccination or recovery status. Self-isolation will not be required upon arrival in Lithuania.

Entry of foreigners to Lithuania from third countries will still be subject to restrictions until 31 March 2022 under Resolution No 152 of the Government of the Republic of Lithuania declaring a national emergency.

Travellers from third countries who may enter Lithuania must complete the NPHC form before arrival and, in those cases where travellers do not meet the vaccination and recovery criteria applicable in Lithuania, they must bring a negative PCR test response (72 hours from the moment of specimen collection). Self- isolation will no longer be required from third countries’ travellers.

Please note that COVID-19 disease prevention measures are recommended throughout the trip. It is important to wear a medical mask, keep distance, stay away from gatherings, avoid non-ventilated premises, or stay there as briefly as possible, and observe hand hygiene.

You are advised against travelling if you develop cold symptoms (cough, runny nose, heavy breathing, running temperature, etc.).

It is advised to take a paid PCR test or an antigen test on the 3rd day of arrival in Lithuania at the latest, at a medical facility or laboratory of your own choice. The recommendation will not apply to those recovered, if the COVID-19 disease was confirmed on the basis of a positive PCR test within 90 days before the arrival in Lithuania.

Travellers from Lithuania to other countries are advised to check the requirements applicable in the destination country before the trip. For more information, please visit the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs or the official EU website Re-open EU.
