Can I travel to Lithuania?
 
Andrius Aleksandravičius
YES!

As of May 1, Lithuania removed all COVID-19-related requirements for all travelers. It means that travelers arriving in Lithuania from any country in the world will no longer need to take the COVID-19 test before the trip, even if they are not vaccinated or recovered from COVID-19. Filling a questionnaire of the National Public Health Centre is also no longer required. As all touristic attractions are open in Lithuania, you can explore the whole country easily and mask-free.

You will find more detailed information below.
