Sweden scraps demand for negative COVID-test for travelers from the Nordics

STOCKHOLM, May 28 (Reuters) - Travelers coming from the Nordics will no longer have to show a negative COVID-test to enter Sweden from next week, the Minister for the Interior said on Friday.

“We have decided to go ahead with the Nordics first, it’s a priority for us,” Minister for the Interior Mikael Damberg told a news conference.

Travelers from other countries within the EU will still have to show a negative test until June 30. Travelers from outside the EU are still banned.
