Foreign Ministry to open for travel to ten European countries

1:45 min

The Swedish foreign ministry will remove its advice against non-essential travel to ten countries in Europe from the 30th of June.

The ten countries are Belgium, Croatia, France, Greece, Iceland, Italy, Luxembourg, Portugal, Spain and Switzerland. These countries have in turn opened up for travellers from Sweden.

The advice against travelling to other EU/EEA countries, including Finland, Denmark, Norway and the UK, remains in place until the 15th of July. According to Ann Linde, this is because these countries have different travel restrictions or rules regarding quarantine regarding people travelling from Sweden and other countries.

For countries outside the EU, the EEA and the Schengen area, the advice against non-essential travel has been extended to 31 August 2020.
