More Details

Last updated: October 27, 2020

Since June 16, 2020, Lithuania has been slowly reopening its borders for tourism. As of August 9th, more EU nations and a few third-party countries can now travel to this beautiful country without restrictions.

Who Can Enter Lithuania As Tourist?

As of the moment, only EU nations and select third-party countries with a low infection rate over the last 14 days can enter Lithuania without testing and/or quarantine.

Here's the list of the countries that can enter without quarantine:


Here are the countries that can enter subject to quarantine:


To clarify, if the country's coronavirus incidence rate exceeds 16 cases per 100 000 population in the last 14 days, that's the time territories are deemed to be virus-infected. These measures also apply in the cases where tourists have traveled through the affected countries in transit such as by car, and public transport. However, travel by air without leaving the airport transit area is an exception.

As of October 16, all travelers coming from Italy, Liechtenstein, and Bulgaria must go on a mandatory quarantine upon arrival in Lithuania. These countries have been added to their list of COVID-19 high-risk countries.

Lithuanian residents and citizens must complete a 14-day quarantine if they are returning home from one of these countries: link here. The same applies to travelers returning or arriving from the countries on that list.

Entry Requirements For Lithuania

All the approved countries listed above must also:

  • Fill out the passenger arrival form upon arrival.
  • Travelers should agree to temperature scans at the airport.
  • All travelers should have a health travel insurance that covers COVID-19.

October 6 update: Authorities in Lithuania will no longer require travelers from high-risk areas to submit a negative COVID-19 test prior to departure starting Oct. 2. However, they are still required to self-isolate for 14 days on arrival, which can be reduced to 10 days if a test taken after 8 days of self-isolation will turn out negative.

Health Measures and Safety Protocols

  • Wearing of masks is mandatory in all enclosed public places such as public transportation, shops, supermarket, etc.
  • Travelers must follow social distancing measures.
  • Indoor gatherings are permitted but limited to not more than 200 people.

What's Open in Lithuania?

Most non-essential businesses have reopened provided they implement strict hygiene and social distancing requirements. Authorities continue to encourage remote working when possible. Authorities may reintroduce, extend, or otherwise amend restrictions at short notice dependent upon the evolution of disease activity in the region.

Some of the following are open (but not all), subject to social distancing and limited operations:

  • Hotels and accommodations
  • Public transportation
  • Restaurants, cafes, and bars mainly for outdoors
