Sweden scraps demand for negative COVID test to enter country

Travellers to Sweden will no longer have to show a negative COVID test before entering Sweden from 21.01.2022, the government announced on 18.01.2022.

Since 28 December last year, Sweden has introduced the rules for a negative COVID test to slow the spread of the contagious Omicron variant. Since then, Sweden has set new case records every day, with the Omicron variant now the completely dominant one.

A government statement says: “Travellers no longer pose a particular risk of influencing the spread of Omicron in Sweden”.

In recent days, more than 20,000 new cases have been registered daily in Sweden, about double the previous record set in earlier waves. The number of cases has put a strain on health services, but not to the same extent as before the vaccine was introduced.
