Sweden has become another country to enforce a travel ban on U.S. tourists because of concerns over rising cases of the Delta variant.

From the 6th of September 2021, Sweden will remove the United States from its safe list of countries.

As a result, U.S citizens will not be allowed to enter Sweden for non-essential travel regardless of their vaccination status.

Sweden has extended the nation’s entry ban for non-EU/EEA travelers until October 31st.

Now Sweden has removed the U.S from its list of safe countries with Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Montenegro, and North Macedonia.

At present, Sweden does not have any exemptions based on the vaccination status of travelers from outside the EU/EEA.

Sweden and Bulgaria stopping non-essential travel from the U.S. regardless of vaccination status will worry the travel industry. »
