Sweden tightens restrictions for tourists from six countries including the US

Sweden has decided to reimpose entry restrictions for travellers from the US and five other countries, but will consider more lenient rules for vaccinated people.

The Swedish government today formally extended Sweden’s non-EU/EEA entry ban until October 31st, as The Local reported last week. There are several exceptions to the ban including those travelling for specific reasons, as well as from certain countries, but six countries were on Thursday removed from the exempt list of “safe countries”: the United States, Israel, Kosovo, Lebanon, Montenegro and Northern Macedonia, based on a rise in Covid-19 infections in those countries. From September 6th, the entry ban will apply to these countries, too.

That doesn’t necessarily mean all travel from those countries will be banned, as travellers may fall into another exempted category, such as travelling for urgent family reasons or if they have EU citizenship or a Swedish residence permit. The decision to reimpose restrictions on these six countries came from an EU recommendation. Sweden currently makes no distinction between vaccinated and unvaccinated travellers when it comes to travel from outside the European Union, but the government hinted that further exemptions for vaccinated travellers “resident in certain third countries” may be on the way.

“There are a number of countries with which Sweden has close relations. There, the government will now investigate the possibility of exempting fully vaccinated residents in certain third countries,” Interior Minister Mikael Damberg told the TT news agency on Thursday. “I am thinking primarily of the United Kingdom, but also the United States, even though the United States is more complex and many states have very different rules.” Neither he nor the government’s statement on Thursday gave any indication as to when such exemptions may be introduced.


To Anyone Who's Dreaming


It was like the army. Train twice a day, then study. Fifty players sleeping in bunk beds lined up next to each other. Before I arrived I had been at trials with three clubs in Săo Paulo, but they had all rejected me, so I went back to my hometown, Imbituba, where this Italian football agent invited me to this camp he was running. He said that the players who did well there had a small chance to go to Italy. What kid doesn’t want to go to Europe, right?

I had been at the camp for a while when the real problems began. One day the cleaning lady quit because she hadn’t been paid, so they split us into groups of five and gave each one a cleaning day. Cheap, sure. But one day a group didn’t bother to clean. So what happened the next day? The second group didn’t bother either. That kept happening for weeks — and the filth just accumulated. The toilets were the worst. You had to hold your breath.

Maybe this will surprise you, but living like that actually became normal to me. Seriously. I learned that humans can adapt to anything, no matter how bad. It’s insane what you can endure when you feel like you have no choice. When you want something so badly that quitting seems impossible.

You know, when I was five, my dad had asked me what I wanted to be when I grew up. I said, “A football player.” He said, “But being a football player is not just the stuff you see on TV. They will hurt you, they will steal from you, they will make you cry. You will want to go home. You will want to give up. Now, what do you want to be when you grow up?”

I said, “A footballer player.”................................


Hubby started running fever. I have the paste.


This good "Christian" threatens to kill school board members, cops etc. Jesus saves, huh?


Biden did an amazing job, ended a forever war, dealt w/ a SHIT deal Trump left him with (especially

that 5000 person strong prisoner release) and had only one really big shit event (the ISIS-K attack, BUT we already went after them hard, AND that attack removed all doubt we could stay and foot-drag).

We got a shedload of Afghani allies out, will keep trying to get more.

The Afghan army suffered HUGE casualties over the 20 years (pisses me off to see them called cowards and worse), and they only cut and ran after it was clear we were leaving and then came the coffin-nail, when the Afghan corrupt government fled (and those fuckers had been starving them of pay, ammo, equipment, etc for close to a year).

The war-mongers, the shit press, the fucking ULTRA hypocritical Rethugs, and all the MIC and their shills can go FUCK THEMSELVES.

Superb job, Mr President!
