Lithuania is opening its borders to citizens of countries where coronavirus cases have been below 25 per population of 100,000 for the past two weeks.
The Lithuanian Health Ministry has published a list of EU and European Economic Area list of ‘safe’ countries, travellers arriving from these countries will not be required to self-isolate for two weeks.
Currently, the list includes Germany, Poland, France, Italy, Finland, Norway, Denmark, Austria, Bulgaria, Croatia, Cyprus, the Czech Republic, Estonia, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Switzerland. People can also travel to Lithuania from Malta, Ireland, and Spain, but are still required to self-isolate for two weeks.
Once added to the list, countries may be removed, if COVID-19 infection rate rises above 15 new cases per 100,000 people over the past two weeks.
Lithuania is yet to decide on people arriving from non-EU countries. As of June 1, border control was lifted on Lithuanian-Latvian border.
