THE LIST OF VIRUS AFFECTED COUNTRIES

In order to differentiate coronavirus affected foreign countries, Lithuania now applies the principle of traffic lights color code. Based on the 14-day morbidity figures, states are attributed to one of the four – green, yellow, red or grey – zones. Lithuania’s list of the Covid-19 affected countries is published every Friday and comes into force the following Monday.

European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) map of virus affected countries is regularly updated in accordance to the traffic light principle and can be followed: here

Third countries which are not included into the ECDC map are attributed to the grey zone and in Lithuania considered as virus affected countries. Exceptions apply for the European Union list of third countries whose residents should not be a subject to a temporary restriction on crossing external borders for the purpose of unnecessary travel to the EU.

The most recent (effective as of May 17, 2021) Lithuania’s list of virus affected countries is available: here

It is important to note that even though on the 8th of February, all world states were included into Lithuania’s list of virus affected countries, travelers who return / arrive from countries:

  • that had registered the spread of new coronavirus mutations – Brazilian (P.1) or South African (B.1.351 or 501Y.V2) strains;
  • in which the 14-day morbidity rate equals (or exceeds) 500 cases per 100 000 habitants;

are subjected to stricter isolation requirements (see here).

MANDATORY REQUIREMENTS

Currently all travelers who arrive to Lithuania from virus affected countries fall subject to three mandatory procedures.

10-DAY ISOLATION

This isolation term can be shortened if on its 7th day a person tests repeatedly (at his / her own expenses) and his / her PCR (coronavirus) test confirms negative result.

COVID-19 TEST

Coronavirus test that confirms negative result has to be taken no earlier than 72 hours before the arrival to Lithuania. Only results of the PCR or antigen tests would be approved.

REGISTRATION

No earlier than 48 hours before the start of their trip, travelers must register to the National Public Health Center (NVSC) system by:

  1. Filling in an online NVSC form and providing a carrier with a registration confirmation (QR code) while boarding to a vehicle – if a person travels international routes organized and operated by carriers (all types of vehicles).
  2. Filling in an online NVSC form – if a person travels by his / her own transport.

NVSC form and other travel-related applications and forms can be accessed: here

As of February 8, 2021, all Lithuanian air and sea ports conduct tightened control of passengers who arrive to Lithuania from abroad.

EXEMPTIONS

Exemptions to self-isolation have been set by order No. V-352 (March 12, 2020) issued by the Minister of Health.

At the moment, these categories of travelers are not subjected to mandatory self-isolation: see list of May 17-23, 2021

Travelers who qualify for self-isolation exceptions will have to provide this information while filling in an online NVSC form and preserve documents that prove access to such right – given the need, they might be demanded.

Travelers who healed from the Covid-19 will not be required to present documents that prove history of infection, if the disease was diagnosed in Lithuania and the related data has been registered in the information system.

Exemptions to Covid-19 testing have been set by order V-1463 (June 15, 2020) issued by the Minister of Health.

At the moment, these categories of travelers are not subjected to mandatory Covid-19 testing (see list of May 17-23, 2021):

  • teams / crews of carriers who organize international communication routes (by all means of transport) and who intend to leave Lithuania within 72 hours from the moment of arrival.
  • travelers who pass Lithuania in transit;
  • minors who are younger than 16 years old;
  • people who have been vaccinated against Covid-19;
  • people who healed from the Covid-19 – as long as they have been diagnosed by a PCR or an antigen test and the positive result has been registered within 180 days prior to the arrival to Lithuania;
  • people who arrive by private transport – in this case the test can also be taken in Lithuania (however, it is mandatory to register for a check-up within 24 hours from the date of arrival);
  • members of official delegations;
  • foreigners who arrive to Lithuania on the basis of humanitarian reasons and who travel by carrier (instead of personal) transport – in this case the test can also be taken in Lithuania (however, it is mandatory to register for a check-up within 24 hours from the date of arrival).

People who previously healed from coronavirus or have been vaccinated according to the vaccination scheme are not subjected to either testing or isolation as long as they can present:

  • health facility certificate (translated to Lithuanian, English, or Russian language) that confirms experience of healing from the coronavirus infection, registered within 180 days prior to the arrival;
  • certificate (translated to Lithuanian, English, or Russian language) that confirms performed vaccination.
