Lithuania Tightens Travel Rules for Cyprus, Czechia & Arrivals From Few Other Countries

Unvaccinated and non-exempt travelers arriving in Lithuania from Cyprus, the Czech Republic and Denmark must follow the rules imposed on red category countries, which include the following:

Complete the Lithuanian version of the Passenger Identification Form (NVSC Profile) 48 hours before arrival in the country Take a PCR test 72 hours before travel or antigen test 24 hours before the flight to Lithuania Quarantine for ten days upon arrival

TheSchengen.com reports that these rules are imposed on all arrivals from the red category countries, which consists of these EU member states:

Ireland Austria Belgium Bulgaria Estonia Greece Croatia Latvia Poland Luxembourg Netherlands Norway Martinique Regions and French Guiana Romania Slovakia Finland Slovenia Switzerland Hungary Germany

Moreover, the red category includes all the remaining countries in the world, such as the United States, the United Kingdom, the United Arab Emirates, Canada, Japan, all the countries of South America and the African continent.

Like Lithuania, the Czechs have also tightened entry rules for unvaccinated Cypriot travelers. On the other hand, while Cyprus has imposed quarantine and double-test requirements for Poland, the Netherlands and Iceland, it has eased entry rules for Spaniards.

Lithuanian authorities also announced that arrivals from Spain and Liechtenstein have been added to the orange category, which means they can enter the Baltic state by presenting a completed NVSC profile and pre-departure PCR/antigen test, taken through the following rules described earlier. In addition, Orange class arrivals must also undergo a three-to-five day PCR test upon arrival but do not have to be isolated until the test result is received.

The orange category includes Iceland and the regions of Greece in Crete, Rhodes, Santorini, Italy, France and Portugal, excluding Madeira and Sweden.

Furthermore, the green category includes the Spanish regions of Fuerteventura, Tenerife, the Canary Islands, Malta and Portuguese Madeira as well as the Mayotte and Reunion regions of France.

Non-vaccinated, non-exempt Green Class travelers must submit an NVSC profile and a PCR or antigen test prior to departure.

However, fully vaccinated entrants, those who have recovered from COVID-19 and, in general, EU COVID-19 digital certificate holders, are exempt from these entry rules.

Based on data provided by the World Health Organization (WHO), Lithuania has recorded 390,031 cases of COVID-19 and 5,661 deaths since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.

WHO figures show that 1,846 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the Baltic country in the past 24 hours, and 28 have died.

Moreover, the European Center for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) shows that 75.1 percent of the adult population in Lithuania is vaccinated with the first coronavirus vaccine, while 71.3 percent of them are fully immune to the virus.
