Timeline and information

The European Union had banned all non-essential travel from outside the Schengen zone for the next 30 days. Sweden is part of Schengen and approved this new temporary measure. If you are not an EU-citizen, traveling to Sweden will no longer be possible.

In comparison to many of their Scandinavian neighbors, Sweden hasn't imposed many extra regulations or quarantine measures yet as of March 26. Schools remained open and large gatherings were still allowed.

On March 27, the Swedish government announced they will ban all public gatherings of more than 50 people as of Sunday, March 29.

The Swedish approach to curb the coronavirus is one on a voluntarily basis. The government urges its citizens to stay inside when they feel ill and to limit movements within the country.
