Temporary entry ban to Sweden extended and amended due to Brexit
18 December 2020
Since March 2020, a temporary ban on entry to the EU via Sweden has been in force due to the coronavirus pandemic. The Swedish Government announced today an extension to the entry ban until 31 March 2021.
Until the end of the transition period of the UK's exit from the EU, on 31 December 2020, UK nationals are regarded as EEA citizens and travel from the UK is not affected by the ban. When the transition period comes to an end, the UK will become a third country in relation to the EU and the entry ban will apply. However, people who are entitled to residence status in Sweden will remain exempt from the entry ban after 31 December 2020.
