Latvia is among the latest countries added to Lithuania’s travel ‘red list’, LRT in Vilnius reports .
Luxembourg and Romania are also added to the red list in the latest weekly update.
People coming from countries on the red list must self-isolate for ten days and get tested for Covid-19 unless they have recovered from the coronavirus in the past 180 days or have been vaccinated.
Travellers arriving in Lithuania from yellow-zone countries are required to get tested before their trip and take a second test between days 3 and 5 after arrival. Testing can be done at a mobile testing site after registering online (1808.lt) or by phone (1808).
Arrivals from a country on the green list only need to have a pre-departure Covid-19 test.
These requirements do not apply to travellers who have a certificate that they have recovered from the coronavirus, valid for 180 days after the positive test result, and those who are fully vaccinated with at least 14 days after their second shot.
All travellers must also fill in a questionnaire before coming to Lithuania.
The full list of rules can be found on the website of the Health Ministry, as well as the government’s dedicated coronavirus website . The list of self-isolation rules can be found here .
The three-tier system is based on the data published by the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC).
