And foreigners coming from Belgium next week will still need to self-isolate for two weeks, Lithuania's Health Ministry said on Friday.

Lithuanian citizens are allowed to come from all countries but will need to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival from the aforementioned countries.

The ministry reminds that if the number of COVID-19 cases has ranged from 15 to 25 per population of 100,000 for the past 14 days, citizens of these countries are allowed to come to Lithuania and will have to self-isolate for 14-days. If the number of COVID-19 has stayed below 15 per population of 100,000 for the past 14 days, citizens of such countries are able to come to Lithuania without mandatory 14-day isolation.

If the number of coronavirus cases exceeds 25 per population of 100,000, foreigners are banned from coming from these countries.

Meanwhile, Lithuanian citizens are allowed to return from any country but will need to self-isolate for two weeks, if they come from countries where the number of COVID-19 cases has been over 15 per population of 100,000 for the past two weeks.

The ministry pointed to the fact that the requirement to self-isolate will depend on the initial point of travel. If people cannot prove they are travelling from a country the self-isolation requirement does not apply to, they will be subjected to the measures applicable to the country they directly arrived to Lithuania from.

The ministry also paid attention to the fact that if some country was not on the Lithuanian list, it would not mean it accepts Lithuanians as there is no joint agreement of all EEA countries.

Due to a large number of coronavirus cases in Sweden, those arriving in Lithuania from this country will have to self-isolate for two weeks, even if a person travelled to take a ferry in Sweden via Norway or Denmark.

The new rules apply to foreigners from EEA countries, Switzerland and the UK. Decisions on the arrival of foreigners from third countries have not been taken yet.
