The northern European country previously eased restrictions for visitors who had acquired immunity to Covid-19 – either by having been infected and then recovering from the virus, or by being vaccinated. However, the country has since suspended entry to travellers from several countries because of a rising number of cases.
Previously, tourist attractions were closed until April 25 and travellers were advised to postpone travel to Estonia, although general restrictions have loosened in May. This includes the reopening of shops, museums and restaurants but at limited capacity and with reduced hours. However, spas, pools and entertainment establishments (such as bowling alleys or cinemas) remain closed.
Estonia will admit people with no symptoms arriving from a member states of the EU, the Schengen area, or from the UK and Northern Ireland. Additionally, the Estonian border is open to passengers from third countries with a low infection rate and included in a list that is updated every other Friday, which can be accessed on the country’s official advice website.
