Finland, France, Monaco and Portugal have also moved down to the 'Red' list starting from Monday.

The Health Board (Terviseamet) has also urged all arrivals from all states, vaccinated and unvaccinated alike, to take a PCR test on arrival. These will be provided free of charge

Arrivals should fill in an online passenger declaration form before arrival.

The revised lists, which cover the EU, the EEA and equivalent, including the U.K. and Switzerland, and the Schengen Area, as announced Friday, November 26, and in force from Monday, November 29, together with each country's 14-day coronavirus rate per 100,000 as reported by the Estonian foreign ministry, are as follows.
