TALLINN - Based on the coronavirus infection rate, starting from Monday, July 27, a two-week self-isolation requirement applies to people arriving in Estonia from Andorra, Croatia, the Czech Republic, Belgium, Bulgaria, Luxembourg, Monaco, Portugal, Romania, Spain and Sweden.

According to the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, starting from next week, self-isolation is not compulsory for passengers arriving from the United Kingdom, Iceland, France, Slovenia, Poland, the Netherlands, Denmark, Germany, San Marino, Ireland, Liechtenstein, Italy, Slovakia, Greece, Cyprus, Latvia, Lithuania, Norway, Austria, Switzerland, Hungary, Finland, Malta and the Vatican. 

Additionally, based on the recommendation of the Council of the European Union, Estonia's borders are open to countries outside the European Union that have a low infection rate. Residents of Algeria, Australia, Canada, Georgia, Japan, Morocco, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, Tunisia and Uruguay can travel to Estonia.
