  • The Public Health Agency is extending its recommendation for people who travel to Sweden from outside the Nordic region take a PCR-test upon arrival.
  • This is because the agency has seen that a “relatively high proportion of covid-cases continue to be linked to trips abroad”.
  • Those fully vaccinated for at least two weeks, children under the age of 6 and those who had a confirmed covid infection in the last six months are exempt.
