Emergency preparedness

Community protection and preparedness are about ensuring that the whole of society can cope with both minor and major accidents and crises. Emergency preparedness is intended to protect the lives and health of the population, society's ability to function and the capacity to uphold basic values such as democracy, the rule of law and human rights.

  • Amendments to the entry ban for people who travel to Sweden

    The Government has decided to revert to the entry restrictions that applied prior to 28 December 2021. This means that the specific requirement for a negative COVID-19 result from a test no longer applies for entry from EU/EEA countries. The list of countries with approved vaccine certificates has also been expanded. The amendments will enter into force on 21 January.

    The restrictions for entry into Sweden currently apply until 31 January 2022. It is presently unclear how long the entry ban will apply.
