The National Public Health Center informs that enhanced controls are in place at land entry points at the border with Poland from 17 February. From Wednesday, at the internal border of the European Union with the Republic of Poland, it is checked whether passengers arriving in or returning to Lithuania are registered (by filling in the Questionnaire) on the NPHC website at https://keleiviams.nvsc.lt and have a QR code confirming this, which is sent by e-mail.

Please note that the check is carried out by State Border Guards, who check that the correct data is provided. If arriving persons have not filled in the above-mentioned Questionnaire or have provided inaccurate (not all) data, they will be asked to do so at the border post. In order to make the inspection smoother and faster, please fill in the questionnaire before crossing the state border.

During the inspection, documents proving the right to the isolation exemption may be requested. Administrative liability may be applied for provision of incorrect information in accordance with Article 45.4 of the Code of Administrative Offenses of the Republic of Lithuania, and a fine of EUR 500 to EUR 1500.

Persons arriving in or returning to Lithuania must present a certificate proving the negative COVID-19 test, which was taken no more than 48 hours before arrival in Lithuania or must register for the test in Lithuania within 24 hours from arrival. You can test for free by registering by phone 1808 or on the website 1808.lt .  

Regardless of the test result, 10 days of self-isolation from the day of return to / arrival in the Republic of Lithuania is mandatory for those who arrive. Isolation can be shortened by taking a coronavirus test (PCR), at personal expense, on the 7th day of self-isolation at the earliest, with a negative result thereof.
