Sweden has finally started welcoming foreign travelers and lifting all COVID-19 border restrictions. The beautiful country is visited by many travelers from all over the world and is one of the most popular tourist destinations in Europe. But against the pandemic, the country has imposed some restrictions.
But in a recent update, the Swedish government announced the removal of all pandemic records. Now, visitors to the country no longer have to provide vaccination proofs or test them before they arrive. The announcement came shortly after Sweden said the virus “is no longer classified as a public health threat and a danger to society.”
Minister of Justice and Interior Morgan Johansson said in a statement: “We have already lifted the ban on travel to the EU. The government has now decided not to extend the ban on entry into the EU. Entry from third countries. This will make it much easier for everyone who has been prevented from coming to Sweden in recent years due to the pandemic ”.
Before April 1, travelers from the United States were allowed to enter Sweden but were expected to show proof of vaccination or evidence of a negative COVID-19 test done within 72 hours. But now there are no such restrictions and people can enter freely, just like in pre-pandemic times.
According to the Johns Hopkins Coronavirus Resource Center, Sweden has vaccinated just over 74% of its population and is the latest EU country to remove all travel restrictions related to COVID-19.
