Arrivals from affected countries are required to self-isolate but certain exceptions are in place for Poland and Estonia. Citizens of these countries and people legally residing in these countries will not be required to self-isolate for 14 days upon their arrival or return from visits for the purpose of work, studies, agricultural activity or healthcare.

Also, people will not be required to self-isolate upon arrival or return from a non-affected country via Poland when only necessary stops made in Poland, for example, to the purchase of fuel or hygienic needs.

Persons who have returned or arrived from countries on the list of countries most affected by coronavirus infection or who have travelled through these countries, shall be deemed to have been exposed to the virus. Isolation will be mandatory in their case. Isolation, however, will not be mandatory in the case of travelling by air without leaving the airport transit area, or for people returning or arriving from a non-affected country via Poland when only necessary stops are made in Poland, the Health Ministry said.

It also reminds that every traveler returning to or arriving in Lithuania by air, sea or land using regular, special and charter services will have to register electronically with the National Public Health Centre (NPHC) as of Tuesday, 15 September. This means that before boarding a plane, ferry, bus or train, a person will have to fill in a form on the NPHC website and present the confirmation received - the so-called QR code - during the boarding.

For citizens of Lithuania and persons lawfully residing in Lithuania returning to or arriving in Lithuania, this test will not be mandatory but 14-day isolation will remain as a requirement.
