13 July, 2020

Ghana has been added to the list of countries for the mandatory 14 day-isolation to be applied upon return. Romania, Bulgaria, the Virgin Islands, the Seychelles, Djibouti, San Marino, and Eswatini were also added to the list last week, while the Antigua and Barbuda was removed. The list applies to the returning residents of Lithuania and the foreigners who have a permit to enter Lithuania.

Pakistan and the Central African Republic have been removed from the list of the affected countries this week. A total of 63 countries are on the list.

Countries with the coronavirus infection incidence rate over 25 cases per 100,000 population in the last 14 days are considered to be affected countries.

Travellers returning or arriving from the affected countries included in the list must register within 24 hours by submitting their details to the National Public Health Centre. Isolation of 14 days is mandatory for those persons, even if they have passed in transit through the affected country. The same procedure applies for Lithuanian citizens returning from those countries and for foreigners with an entry permit.

The list of the most affected countries is subject to updates in consideration of the epidemiological indicators in foreign countries.

The list takes effect as of 13 July.
