Finland welcomes leisure travelers from a number of countries where the coronavirus situation has eased. There is no mandatory quarantine or testing for travelers from these countries on arrival in Finland.
As of 12 October, leisure travel is possible between Finland and the Vatican.
As of 12 October, travel restrictions are unfortunately back in place again for travelers from Cyprus, Latvia and Lichtenstein due to an increase of coronavirus cases in these countries. Arrival by pleasure craft is possible from Schengen countries.
Leisure travel is also possible for people living in China (based on EU guidance on reciprocity) Australia, Japan, New Zealand, Rwanda, South Korea, Thailand, and Uruguay. Self-isolation is not required for travelers from these countries.
As of 19 September, the new limit value of the Finnish government for travel to Finland without mandatory testing or quarantine is a maximum of 25 new cases of the disease per 100,000 persons in the country during the previous 14 days.
LEISURE TRAVEL ALSO POSSIBLE FROM EU AND SCHENGEN COUNTRIES WITH HIGHER INFECTION RATES STARTING END OF NOVEMBER
As of 23 November, leisure travel will also be possible from all EU and Schengen countries (including UK) with infection rates above 25 per 100 000 persons. However, travelers from these countries will need to have proof on arrival in Finland of a negative COVID-19 test result no older than 72 hours. On arrival in Finland, visitors from these countries are placed in quarantine for 72 hours after which they need to take a second test. After a second negative COVID-19 test result, the person can move around in Finland freely. If the visit to Finland lasts less than 72 hours, no quarantine or second test is required.
Finnish health authorities will review countries’ infection rates weekly. The Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare’s traffic light model show which countries it is possible to travel to Finland from.
Finnish health authorities may enforce mandatory COVID-19 testing and quarantines of 14 days on people arriving from travel-restricted countries if there is suspicion that they may have been subjected to the virus, for instance during their flight.
