BC, Vilnius, 14.09.2020.Print version
Internal border controls put in place at Lithuanian airports and the seaport of Klaipeda in a bid to stem the spread of the coronavirus are set to expire on Monday evening, the Interior Ministry said.

It will remain mandatory for travelers from coronavirus-affected countries to provide certain information to public health officials, but they will have to fill out questionnaires online before their arrival. Until now they could do so at airports and seaports.  

On arrival, travelers will have to provide specialists from the National Public Health Center (NPHC) confirmation that they have completed the questionnaire – as a QR code or printed out on paper. 

State border officials are lifting ID checks at airports and the seaport as of 6 p.m. on Monday, Interior Minister Rita Tamasuniene said. 

However, people arriving from coronavirus-affected countries will continue to be informed about the self-isolation requirement, she added.

Migration controls will remain in place. NPHC officials and police officers will continue to check if the mandatory isolation procedure is being followed, according to the press release.
