Travelling restrictions for Sweden

A Covid certificate is needed for foreign nationals in order to travel to Sweden. The certificate shows that a person has been tested negative, has been vaccinated against, or recovered from Covid-19.

From 28 December all travellers over the age of 12 need to presenta negative Covid-19 testwhen arriving in Sweden, regardless of which country you are travelling from and regardless of whether you have been vaccinated or have recovered from Covid-19. Antigen tests and PCR tests (NAAT test) are allowed as a test, which can be up to 48 hours old when entering Sweden.

Those who enter Sweden from abroad are also recommended to take a Covid-19 test on arrival in Sweden. This applies to both vaccinated and unvaccinated people, even if they have had Covid-19 in the past six months. This also applies to those who have shown a negative test in connection with the entry. Children under pre-school age are exempt.

There is a ban on non-essential travel to Sweden from countries outside the EU/EEA until 31 January 2022. A number of countries are exempt from the entry ban.
