swedish citizens can travel to the usa covid19
The Swedish government’s stance on American’s
On Monday, March 15, the Swedish government announced its approval of an American travel ban from the United States. This ban will come into effect on Wednesday, March 17, and will prevent any Swedes from travelling to the United States. In a statement, Swedish Minister for Foreign Affairs Margot Wallstrom said: “The new coronavirus can easily spread through human-to-human contact. If the [United States] allows entry of persons from other countries in contact with those infected, it will be a threat to the health of the Swedish people.”
How to know if Sweden has a travel ban
If Sweden has a travel ban, this would be an issue for you because your country and Sweden are both in the European Union (EU). There is no requirement for a country to have a travel ban on EU citizens when this becomes a worldwide pandemic. If Sweden does have a travel ban, this means that citizens are unable to travel to the US. However, the Swedish government has said that they will work with the US government to try to avoid a ban.
How to cope with Covid
After 1.2 million people tested positive for Covid-19 in the US, a number of US states have started allowing citizens from certain countries to enter the US. Several states have also started reopening, despite the warning of the death toll in other countries. “Covid-19 is an unprecedented challenge to our health and our economy, and the virus may be here for the long term,” said Brett Giroir, health adviser to the vice president at the White House. “To date, there have been more than 115,000 deaths worldwide,” Giroir said. “We need to act aggressively and quickly to save lives.” Covid-19 is a respiratory disease caused by a coronavirus that has spread from animals to people and is transmitted via coughing or sneezing. The disease causes a fever and sometimes respiratory symptoms such as cough and shortness of breath. There is no known cure. It is unclear when people will have immunity.
Americans aren’t too fond of Swedish travellers
Americans aren’t too fond of Swedish travellers, which the Swedish government says is because of the COVID-19 outbreak. Swedes have long traveled to the U.S. to attend major events, such as baseball tournaments. A number of Americans also visited Stockholm and other Scandinavian cities for the winter Olympics in 1952. Since the outbreak began, many Americans have taken to social media to criticise Swedish citizens. One person wrote that “Americans don’t like our face masks, so we are having trouble getting to America”. Another added: “So glad you Swedes feel comfortable enough to travel abroad and go to places with such a terrible virus”. And yet another posted that “If you Swedes really wanted to fight the covid, you’d open your doors and take back all the COVID-19 people”. Others weren’t too keen on Swedish tourists. One woman posted: “Why don’t you Swedes get the f*** off our soil already”. While another wrote: “I’m an American and I hate you Swedes”.
Are there customs officers?
Yes, certain people who are not US citizens, but are currently visiting or living in the US, may be able to enter the US without a visa. These people are called “parolee”. Parolee are in a similar situation to tourists who are on a visa waiver program. For example, if you are on a visa waiver program, you don’t need a visa to enter the US if you are visiting a friend or relative, or you have an invitation to visit from a person in the US. There are special regulations for parolee, which you can read about here: https://www.cbp.gov/newsroom/public-affairs/president-trump-s-fourth-migration-week/covid-19-parolee-immigration
