    However, authorities last week decided to allow travelers from Israel, Albania, Andorra, the Faroe Islands, Morocco, Monaco and Panama entry under the same rules as EU citizens because Sweden will recognize the vaccine certificates issued by their respective governments.
    Israel announced the Green Pass will only be in effect for people who have received three doses of the coronavirus vaccine, as of October 3

    “The government has decided on changes to the temporary entry ban to Sweden. The changes mean that additional persons who can present vaccination certificates issued in certain designated countries and areas are exempted from the entry ban and the test requirement,” a statement from the Ministry of Justice reads.
    Holders of a vaccine passport will no longer have to take a Covid-19 test before entering Sweden and will no longer be required to quarantine after entering the country.
    The vaccine passport must state that the visitor was immunized with a vaccine dose officially recognized by Sweden.
