Lithuania has lifted Covid-19 restrictions to welcome international tourists.

People visiting will no longer be required to provide a vaccine certificate, documentation of recovery or a negative test when entering Lithuania.

Starting from March 31, visitors from other countries will still be required to present documentation to gain entry to the county, but they will not need to do additional tests or self-isolate.

The decision to ease restrictions comes after the World Health Organisation’s (WHO) recommendation to get tourism back up and running to reduce economic and social harm.

Following Lithuania’s changes, they now remain one of the most open European countries regarding international travel.

Lithuania’s Minister of the Economy and Innovation, Aušrinė Armonaitė said: “Lithuania is one of the first countries in the region to quickly and flexibly respond to the changing nature of the virus.

“The lifted restrictions send a positive message to the entire Lithuanian tourism sector, which has been affected by the pandemic.”

“Previous restrictions would no longer serve the same purpose, and would only have a negative impact on the economy, seeing that the current strain of virus is considered milder.

“This is also good news for tourists and Lithuanians living abroad since both groups will now find it easier to come to Lithuania.”

Pre-pandemic, around 2 million tourists visited the country in 2019, bringing in €977.8M spent by visitors that year.

Most tourist attractions are now open in Lithuania and allow visitors to explore the country with minimal safety limitations such as wearing medical masks in public indoor spaces and FFP2 grade respirators during indoor events.

Both Wizz Air and Ryanair offer flights to Lithuania, from London Stansted Airport and London Luton Airport.
