Updated information about countries and self-isolation requirements for passengers from Europe as of 12 June

12. June 2020 - 17:10

Based on the coronavirus infection rate, starting from Monday 15 June, a two-week self-isolation requirement applies to people arriving in Estonia from Sweden, Portugal, the United Kingdom and Belgium. Starting from next week, self-isolation is no longer compulsory for passengers arriving from Austria, Bulgaria, Spain, the Netherlands, Croatia, Iceland, Italy, Greece, Cyprus, Lithuania, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, Latvia, Norway, France, Malta, Poland, Romania, Germany, Slovakia, Slovenia, Finland, Switzerland, Denmark, the Czech Republic and Hungary, if they have spent at least 14 days in these countries shortly before coming to Estonia. Starting from next week, the two-week self-isolation period is no longer mandatory for people arriving from Ireland, as the infection rate in the country has significantly fallen compared to this week.

On 28 May, the government approved the reopening of Estonia’s borders from 1 June to passengers from Europe. Estonia will admit people with no symptoms arriving from the European Union, the Schengen area or the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland.

Information about countries and requirements is available on the website of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs:

The list is updated every Friday and updates will take force the following Monday. The self-isolation requirements for passengers arriving in Estonia depend on whether the coronavirus infection rate in their country of departure is above 15. This means that 15 or fewer people per 100 000 inhabitants should have contracted the virus in their country of departure in the past 14 days. Anyone arriving in Estonia from a country with a higher infection rate must self-isolate for two weeks on arrival.

During the weekend (13-14 June), the border rules of the previous week apply.
