Current entry restrictions and public health measures in Finland

Finland has in place restrictions on entry from almost all countries. The current restrictions are indispensable in order to slow down the spread of the pandemic. The restrictions on entry into Finland will run to 25 May 2021.

Travellers wishing to enter Finland may be ordered to undergo a mandatory health check to determine if they have COVID-19. 

Transport operators should require all passengers arriving in Finland to carry proof of a negative COVID-19 test.

Avoid unnecessary travel

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foreign Ministry’s general travel advice is to avoid all but essential travel. However, everyone has the right to leave Finland, provided that there is no legal impediment to this. Finnish citizens and permanent residents of Finland always have the right to return to Finland.

If you intend to travel abroad, you must yourself find out about the requirements related to COVID test certificates and vaccination certificates, among other things. Before travelling, always check the current entry regulations from the authorities of your destination country, e.g. from the nearest mission of that country. Countries may also impose entry restrictions on transit traffic.

Restrictions on entry as of 19 March
