Sweden extends restrictions for travellers from China
Negative Covid-19 tests are required until at least February
The Swedish government has announced plans to extend its entry restrictions for travellers from China until 18 February.
All travellers from China must be able to present a negative Covid-19 test result upon arrival to Sweden, regardless of vaccination status. This applies to all adults and children over 12 years of age.
This requirement came into force on 7 January, following many other nations in Europe and America, and the government decided on 27 January that it would continue into February.
Travellers from the special administrative regions of Hong Kong and Macau are also subject to these entry restrictions, but those arriving from Taiwan are not.
However, Swedish citizens and children under 12 years old are exempt from presenting a negative test result, alongside holders of Swedish residence permit, permanent residents of the European Union, other citizens of the European Economic Area (EEA) and their family members. The government has detailed all of those who are exempt from the requirement.
