Sweden set to welcome back American travelers this month, but the CDC advises against it

Sweden is getting ready to welcome back American tourists.

The country, which first established a ban on non-essential travel from countries outside the European Union and European Economic Area in March, is planning to open its borders to U.S. tourists starting June 30, according to an online post from Sweden’s Ministry of Justice. 

Both vaccinated and unvaccinated travelers 18 and older will be required to present proof of a negative COVID test taken 48 hours prior to arrival.  

The updated policy comes shortly after the EU added the U.S. to a list of countries for which it suggests travel restrictions should gradually be lifted. The list applies to all American tourists, vaccinated or not, for nonessential travel.
