On account of the coronavirus

Changed regulations for certain international travel on account of covid-19

The Swedish Government has decided that people travelling to Sweden from China must show a certificate of a negative covid-19 test result, regardless of vaccination status. Individual countries may also have restrictions for entry and exit.

Entry to Sweden from China

The Public Health Agency of Sweden has now established what criteria these certificates should meet. This concerns, among other things, what types of covid-19 tests are approved and how old they may be.

Detailed instructions for what criteria must be met at entry into Sweden from China can be found on the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s website.
