The Covid-19 pandemic affects traveling to Sweden. Krisinformation.se has compiled information from the authorities about restrictions and regulations you need to be aware of if you are planning a trip to Sweden.
Since February 9 2022, the Swedish government has decided to lift previous restrictions. This means that restaurants and bars, concert and event venues, shops, and museums no longer need to impose restrictions due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

National advice and recommendations
- Get vaccinated if you can: The Swedish Public Health Agency recommends that everyone aged 12 and older be vaccinated against covid-19. It reduces the risk of serious illness and death.
- Stay home if you have symptoms: Anyone with symptoms of Covid-19 should stay at home and avoid close contact with others if you are ill with symptoms of Covid-19.
- Special advice to those not vaccinated: Not being vaccinated increases the risk of serious illness from Covid-19. To avoid becoming infected, people who are unvaccinated should be extra careful and avoid crowded indoor environments.
