Key Points

  • Travelers who can present a vaccine certificate issued in the UK will be exempt from the ban on entry and COVID-19 test requirements in Sweden


On October 7, 2021, the Swedish government announced that beginning October 11, 2021, travelers who can present a vaccination certificate issued in the United Kingdom are exempt from the entry ban and test requirements when traveling directly to Sweden. Fully vaccinated travelers will be required to present a UK-issued certificate in order to enter Sweden.

What’s Changed?

Currently, Sweden has a temporary entry ban in place until October 31, 2021, with this new change, travelers with vaccination certificates issued in the UK will not be prevented from entering Sweden, nor will these travelers be required to present a negative COVID-19 test result when entering the country.

Looking Ahead

The amendment will go into effect on October 11, 2021. Continue to check the Swedish government’s website for future announcements.
