This requirement is mandatory for all passengers over the age of 16.

Carriers, travel organisers and tourism services providers organising and performing international passenger and tourist transport by regular, special and charter trips must ensure that passengers failing to provide a proof of a COVID-19 test and an obtained negative test result are denied boarding.

Upon close observation of compliance with the above requirements, by the order of the State Commander of National Emergency Operations, a selective screening of passengers arriving by such trips shall be performed as of Monday.

Passengers travelling by their own means of transport must have a proof of COVID-19 test performed not earlier that 72 hours before the arrival in Lithuania or must register for testing within 24 hours after the arrival.
