Double vaccinated travellers to Sweden from the UK are to be exempted from entry ban and test requirement from Monday 11th October
Visit Sweden is delighted to bring you the news that (double) vaccinated travellers to Sweden from the UK are to be exempted from entry ban and test requirement from Monday 11th October.
The changes mean that travellers who can present a vaccine certificate issued in the UK will be exempt from the ban on entry to Sweden and the COVID-19 test requirement.
The move comes ahead of the busy winter season, which sees SAS launch direct flight services between London Heathrow and Luleå, Swedish Lapland and Sälen, a perfect ski destination located in the region of Dalarna. You can learn more about connectivity between the UK and Sweden in the Visit Sweden OTT Course.
The official statement notes; Sweden and the UK have close ties and a long history of cooperation in many important areas. Travel between Sweden and the UK is of major importance for both countries from a range of perspectives, not least to facilitate mutual trade and increased investment. The UK has allowed entry to fully vaccinated Swedes (on certain conditions) for some time. By contrast, travellers from the UK cannot currently travel directly to Sweden unless they are covered by a special exemption. It is therefore very important that vaccinated UK nationals can also travel more easily to Sweden.

We're elated to welcome you and your customers back to Sweden once again.
