The government said it would stop advising against non-necessary travel to Norway, Denmark, Switzerland and the Czech Republic.
It added that current travel restrictions for other countries within the European Union and the United Kingdom would remain until Aug. 12.
Daily COVID-19 death rates and the number of people treated at intensive care have been slowing gradually since April in Sweden.
The country’s death toll of 5,730, when compared to population size, has far outstripped those of its Nordic neighbours, although it remains lower than some European countries that locked down, such as Britain and Spain. ■
