VILNIUS - Following Friday's update, Belgium the Netherlands, Bosnia and Herzegovina, Moldova, Bermuda and Curacao have been added to Lithuania's list of countries whence arrivals fall subject to tighter self-isolation requirements, and Malta has been removed from the list, the country's Health Ministry said.
Travelers are required to have a test for COVID-19 done within 72 hours at the earliest before the arrival in Lithuania and a negative test result.
The requirement remains for crew members who plan to stay in Lithuania longer than 72 hours to bring in a negative COVID-19 test or get tested in Lithuania. The requirements for carriers impose an obligation for crew members carrying out international commercial transportation by all types of vehicles who plan to stay in Lithuania longer than 72 hours to present on their arrival a document (in one of the official languages of the European Union) confirming a test for COVID-19 (coronavirus infection) taken within 72 hours at the earliest before the arrival in Lithuania and a negative test result.
Should they fail to present a test, they will be required, within 24 hours of the arrival in Lithuania, to contact the Coronavirus Hotline at 1808 or other establishment that performs coronavirus tests to book a visit for testing and take a test in due time.
Foreigners are banned from coming to Lithuania, expect for the exceptions set by the government.
The list of affected countries is published every Friday to take effect on Monday for a weekly duration.
