TALLINN - Passengers arriving in Estonia from seven countries of Europe will not be subject to the 10-day restriction on the freedom of movement starting from Monday.
The restriction on the freedom of movement does not apply to passengers arriving from a country with an infection rate below 150 per 100,000 inhabitants in the past 14 days. Such countries now are Croatia, Denmark, Finland, Germany, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Norway.
A 10-day restriction on freedom of movement applies to those arriving in Estonia from a European Union, European Economic Area and Schengen area country with an infection rate of more than 150 people per 100,000 inhabitants in the last 14 days.
From March 8 to 14, the restriction on the freedom of movement applies to passengers arriving from Andorra, Austria, Belgium, Bulgaria, Cyprus, Czech Republic, France, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Monaco, the Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, San Marino, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, and Switzerland.

Passengers arriving in Estonia from the United Kingdom are subject to an additional obligation introduced by the Government of Estonia to take a COVID-19 test no earlier than 72 hours before arrival, and the result of the rest must be negative. The test is not compulsory for children under the age of 12. A 10-day self-isolation is also mandatory for passengers arriving from the United Kingdom. The rule applies also in cases where the passenger has only transited through the United Kingdom on their way to Estonia. The period of self-isolation can be shortened if in addition to the first negative test, a second test taken seven days after arrival is also negative.
