Lithuania imposes testing & quarantine requirements against unvaccinated travelers arriving from various countries
The Lithuanian authorities have announced that following the updated list of Coronavirus-affected areas, starting from today, July 19, several European Economic Area (EEA) and third countries will be placed in the red and grey category, Schengen Visa Info reports.
As such, in line with the newly made modifications, the following EEA countries and areas are now part of the red and grey category:
- Greece (without including Corfu, Kefalonia, Thasos, Zakynthos, Rhodes, and Santorini)
- Spain (including Tenerife, Gran Canaria, and Mallorca)
- Portugal (excluding Madeira)
- French regions: Martinique, French Guiana, and Réunion
Except for the EEA countries/areas mentioned above, the Lithuanian authorities also have placed on the red/grey category all the epidemiologically safe third countries, against which the EU Commission previously advised to gradually lift the restrictions for non-essential travel purposes.
Such a decision means that besides filling an arrival form 48 hours before entering Lithuania’s territory, all arrivals from the red/grey category must present a negative COVID-19 test result.
In addition, everyone is required to stay self-isolated for ten days, with the possibility to shorten the self-isolation period after the seventh day, provided that a second negative Coronavirus test result is presented.
However, through a press release issued by the Ministry of Health of Lithuania, it has been emphasised that the testing and self-isolation requirements do not apply to those who have been fully vaccinated or have recovered from the disease.
