Travel to Lithuania in 2021

Published , by

Last updated November 26, 2021

Lithuania is open to American tourists

Lithuania reopened to non-essential (tourist) travel from the US on June 19, 2021, ending a period of over a year during which American travelers were unable to visit the country.

Entry Requirements

Tourists arriving in Lithuania can show either proof of vaccination with any of the vaccines approved for use in the US. Unvaccinated travelers are required to self-isolate for 10 days. It is also necessary to submit an online form so you can present a QR code on arrival.

Antigen or PCR Testing for Returning Home

If you need to get tested for your journey home, whether it is required by the airline or for re-entry into the U.S. we will help you schedule that at the most convenient location possible, at the appropriate time. For re-entry to the US you need to have a negative result from a Covid-19 viral test up to 3 days before departure (not counting the day of departure, so for a flight at 1pm on a Friday, you could board with a negative test that was taken any time on the prior Tuesday or after.) Since May 12 2021, the CDC have approved Antigen tests for travel. Antigen tests are quicker (results in 30 minutes, not 24 hours) and cheaper (around 1/3 the price or less) than PCR tests and often more readily available. If you are flying direct back to the US, the only test you’ll need is an Antigen test. If you are transferring in another country on the way back to the US other requirements may apply. We advise to check with the airline in this case.

General COVID-19 measures to be aware of

  • maintain physical distance (2 meters)
  • maintain hand hygiene and disinfection (we will provide a personal bottle of hand sanitiser to you upon arrival)
  • Masks are compulsory in all indoor public spaces, including shops and public transport. We will provide a disposable mask of the required type for each day of your trip.

Masks = medical masks or respirators — not cloth masks.
