Coronavirus: Guidance for Travellers

Finland is opening up one step at a time after declaring a nationwide state of emergency due to the Covid-19/Coronavirus outbreak. Finnish borders open for work-based and essential travel from the EU Schengen Area starting 14 May.

International travelers from the EU Schengen Area may enter Finland from 14 May onwards if they have a permanent work contract in Finland or essential reason to do so. Proof of employment needs to be presented at the border when entering Finland. Those entering Finland are recommended to self-isolate for 14 days upon arrival, spending time only at home or at their work place.

Unfortunately, leisure travelling to Finland is not possible at this time. Please stay safe!

Once international leisure travel to Finland becomes possible again, Finnish travel operators are ready to welcome international travelers. The Finnish travel trade adheres to all national guidelines and will do its utmost to ensure a safe and comfortable stay for international guests.

In case of illness (if you are already in Finland):

If you have severe Covid-19 coronavirus symptoms such as fever over 38°C with respiratory infection symptoms (coughing, breathing difficulties) and cannot self-care, seek professional medical help. It is important that you should contact the health center by phone to receive instructions.

If your travel insurance includes medical insurance, please contact the health provider mentioned in the policy first for advice. Otherwise be in contact (first by phone) with the local public health center or hospital emergency department.

The Finnish institute for health and welfare is continously updating their Covid-19 coronavirus updates site.
