COVID-19 in Finland

COVID-19 is no longer considered a generally hazardous communicable disease.

COVID-19 case numbers and deaths have declined. Vaccinations have remained effective against the mutated virus strains as well, and the vaccination coverage of the Finnish population is very good. The restrictive measures imposed due to COVID-19 have been lifted.

Travelling to and from Finland

At the moment, Finland is not imposing any restrictions on entry due to the COVID-19 epidemic. Travellers arriving in Finland are no longer obliged to present proof of COVID-19 vaccination or other certificates or to be tested for COVID-19. Travellers arriving from non-EU and non-Schengen countries must still have normal travel documents, i.e. a passport and, if necessary, a visa.

The Finnish Institute of Health and Welfare recommends that all people travelling abroad obtain full vaccine protection against COVID-19 before travel.

Before travelling, please remember the following:

  • Check the travel restrictions in your country of destination in advance
  • Submit a travel notification
  • Get travel insurance
  • Check that you have the necessary travel documents.

Bear in mind that some countries may still have restrictions on inbound passenger travel, and there may be exceptional visa regulations in force. It is important to check before you travel what restrictions and regulations are in place in your country of destination. The requirements of airlines may also vary.
