1:40 min
  • The recent requirement that all non-resident foreign travellers must take a Covid test up to 48 hours before arrival in Sweden is to be scrapped, the government announced today.

  • The negative test requirement which was introduced on the 28th of December will now only remain in place until this Friday.

  • The omicron variant of Covid-19 is so widespread in Sweden that travellers coming into Sweden are no longer seen as affecting its spread in society, the government says.
