All actual information about COVID-19 (prevention, statistics, symptoms and more) you can find on WHO website and in Google feed.

2019 divided the history of most countries into «before» and «after». We are talking about a pandemic that has swept the whole world. The SARS-CoV-2 virus was first identified among residents of Hubei province (China). In just a few months, a disease called Covid-19 has spread to the inhabitants of the entire planet. Netherlands and Lithuania were not an exception.

Why is covid so dangerous? Regardless of the level of development of a particular state, medical care and other factors, millions of people have become victims of the coronavirus. According to the latest data, this figure is 188 313 990 people, among the total — 4 057 531 deaths. The main symptoms of the disease are: shortness of breath, high fever, dry cough, loss of taste and smell. The world’s leading countries have developed or are working on the production of their own vaccines that protect against COVID-19. Naturally, vaccination is not a 100% guarantee of protection against coronavirus, however, when infected, the disease is transferred much easier.

According to current data (statistics for Thursday, 15 July 2021), the number of cases in Lithuania is 279 488 people, total deaths are 4404, and 6837 are sick right now. Such statistics forced the government of the state of Lithuania to impose certain restrictions on flights and border crossing.

Is it allowed to enter Lithuania from Netherlands?

Current statistics on the restrictions on entry to Lithuania:

  • Open to citizens: Yes
  • Open to s: Yes

During the most «acute» periods of the pandemic, the following restrictions are applied in Lithuania:

  1. Foreigners can enter the territory of Lithuania only if absolutely necessary: study in Lithuania, employment, residence permit. For more information about the conditions of entry, read the official sources of the government: https://reopen.europa.eu/en/map/LTU
  2. Availability of the test: PCR test is required for some travellers.

All countries are divided into 3 main categories by the Ministry of Health:

  • «Green» (low rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Orange» (average rate of spread of coronavirus)
  • «Red» (high rate of spread of coronavirus)

In this regard, the government acts in accordance with the recommendations of the World Health Association. The distribution of states into separate categories is updated regularly. At the moment, Netherlands ranks among the states of the «Green» category.

The main reasons for the introduction of new restrictions are coronavirus mutations, an increase in the number of cases, and insufficient vaccination rates.
