Lithuania welcomes tourists from all countries across the globe! As most touristic attractions are open in Lithuania, you can explore the country easily and only with minimal restrictions - the main ones are displayed in our answers below.

*People who had recovered from COVID-19 are excepted from quarantine if they come from EU or EEA countries, Switzerland, the UK, Andorra, Monaco, San Marino, the Vatican, Israel, Austria, New Zealand, Singapore, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, and China. This list based on the official EU recommendations, which are available right here.
Recovered travellers from countries that are not listed above will have to self-isolate upon arrival. Still, Lithuania will be waiting patiently for you to finish quarantine and begin your unforgettable adventures!
When am I considered fully vaccinated? You are considered to be fully vaccinated if you can provide a country-specific vaccination certificate or an international vaccination certificate. The document must confirm that you have gone through the full programme of COVID-19 vaccination with vaccine registered in the Union Register of Medicinal Products. As of now, the accepted vaccines are: ’COVID-19 Vaccine Janssen’, ‘Comirnaty’, ‘COVID-19 Vaccine Moderna’ and ‘Vaxzevria’.
More information about COVID-19 vaccines can be found on the official EU website right here.
Is there a lot of paperwork involved? Not at all! It will take just 5 minutes to fill out this questionnaire, which will generate a QR code that you can show to the officials at the border.
Do I need to self-isolate if I have not had a successful COVID-19 recovery or vaccine, but have a negative COVID-19 test result? Yes, people arriving to Lithuania from affected countries, who can’t prove they have recovered from COVID-19 or have been vaccinated, have to self-isolate for 10 days from the date of arrival, even if the test result is negative. However, it is possible to shorten the self-isolation period by taking a COVID-19 test, at personal expense, on the 7th day of the self-isolation at the earliest, and receiving a negative response. If you choose to shorten the isolation period, you must complete this online form after receiving the negative COVID-19 result.
For more detailed information about vaccination, self-isolation and exemptions please visit official NPHC website.
