August 31st:

  • This is the current end date on a ban on travel into the EU via Sweden, however it may either be extended or scrapped earlier than planned, depending on the situation. There are some exceptions to the ban, including for EU citizens, people with a Swedish residence permit who live here or are moving here, people in key roles or tourists from a list of a number of 'safe countries'.

December 31st:

  • This is the current date which the Public Health Agency's general guidelines apply until, including the recommendations to maintain good hand hygiene, keep distance from others in public, work from home and avoid travelling during rush hour if you can. It's another date which isn't a fixed deadline, so whether the recommendations are scrapped sooner or kept in place for longer will depend on the state of the outbreak.
