The Finnish Government has made amendments to the entry requirements to Finland starting 21 June 2021. These new guidelines are in force until 11 July 2021.

As of 21 June, leisure travel to Finland is possible from EU and Schengen countries when certain health requirements are met.

Leisure travel from EU and Schengen countries to Finland is possible if

  • The person can present a certificate of having received the full COVID-19 vaccines 14 days prior to arriving in Finland.

The certificate needs to be in either English, Finnish or Swedish. There is no mandatory testing or quarantine for people traveling for leisure from EU and Schengen countries who fulfil the above mentioned health requirements.

Finland also welcomes residents of countries where the COVID-19 incidence level is less than 25 cases per 100 000 inhabitants to travel to Finland for leisure: Iceland, the Vatican, Malta, Australia, Israel, New Zealand, Rwanda, Singapore and South Korea. Residents of Poland, Romania, San Marino and Monaco are also welcome to travel to Finland for leisure starting 21 June.

There is no mandatory testing or quarantine for residents from the above mentioned countries on arrival in Finland.

Restrictions will be lifted for residents of China and for Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions who are traveling from these regions to Finland, provided that reciprocity is confirmed by the Council of the European Union. At the moment only essential travel (not leisure) is possible from China and for Hong Kong and Macao Special Administrative Regions to Finland.

All travelers arriving in Finland from corona risk countries are tested for the coronavirus.
