All data in the material are current as of April 29, 2022, information will be updated.
Since May 1, travelers arriving in Lithuania from any country of the world, including Belarus, will no longer be subject to any COVID-19 management requirements. This information is provided on the website of the National Public Health Center under the Ministry of Health of Lithuania.
Thus, since May 1:
- No COVID-19 test before the trip, even if you are not vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19,
- you will not need to fill in the questionnaire;
- Foreigners are not prohibited from entering;
- Self-isolation is not required.
At the same time, the Lithuanian Ministry of Health recommends to follow general measures to prevent risks of getting ill with coronavirus during the trip to Lithuania. It is recommended to wear a medical mask, keep distance, avoid gathering or staying in unventilated rooms or spending as little time in them as possible, and wash your hands frequently.
Thus, since May 1, 2022, you only need a standard package of documents and any Schengen visa (any of the Schengen countries) to enter Lithuania.
However, it is worth remembering that there are two actual options for Belarusians to enter Lithuania before May 1:
- National visa/type D visa (any Schengen country) + negative PCR test.
- Any Schengen visa (visa type C) + Certificate of complete vaccination against COVID-19 with EU recognized vaccines (not Sputnik V) or doctor’s certificate on suffering COVID-19 (it can be in Russian not older than 270 days from receipt).
We note that in the second case, you do not need PCR. The vaccination is considered complete if no more than 270 days have passed since the last vaccination, otherwise you need a booster. In addition, we emphasize that the certificate of complete vaccination against COVID-19 with vaccines recognized in the EU starts to be valid 14 days after vaccination. It is worth mentioning that there are exceptions.
To cross the border, you need: passport, visa, insurance and a document confirming the purpose of travel (it can be asked at the exit from Belarus, if you go from Belarus): employment contract, documents from clinics, documents confirming education in a foreign educational institution.
Drivers also need: a driver’s license, a Green Card insurance policy and documents for the car.
According to the Lithuanian Ministry of Health, you do not need self-isolation after coming to Lithuania back from April 4, 2022. As a recommendatory measure (but not mandatory), it is worth doing a PCR test at your own expense 3 days after arrival. So it is no longer necessary to fill out a form for entry into Lithuania before arrival, and a QR code on vaccination is not needed.
But respirators or medical masks are necessary, their wearing is mandatory in:
- All health care, nursing and care facilities (hospices, etc.) in the Republic of Lithuania;
- Public transport.
As for stores, cafes, cinemas, and other public places, it is not mandatory to wear masks, but it is recommended.
It is also worth saying that if your PCR test is positive (you have COVID-19), self-isolation is reduced to 5 days from the day of the PCR test response, unless the doctor recommends extending it.
