The government extends the entry ban to Sweden
Sweden's temporary entry ban began to apply on March 19 and has been extended once before. On Thursday, Prime Minister Stefan Löfven announced that the government will extend the entry ban to Sweden further, until June 15. The decision was made on the recommendation of the European Commission.
The purpose of the entry ban is to mitigate the effects of the coronavirus spread and reduce the outbreak of covid-19.
As before, the ban applies to all foreign nationals traveling to Sweden from countries other than EU countries, the UK, Norway, Iceland, Liechtenstein and Switzerland. Swedish citizens are not covered by the ban.
