Travel guidance to Finland

updated 29th Dec 2021

The Finnish Border Guard is responsible for crossing the Finnish state border. The Border Guard provides information on the effects of the coronary pandemic when traveling to Finland on its website. The instructions may change depending on the situation, so it is a good idea to follow the information of the Border Guard from time to time. The guidelines for border guards can be found at

Current restrictions apply to every country (EU, Schengen, NON-EU etc) :

  • a certificate of a complete and valid vaccination series (either one or two doses depending on the vaccine). At least 7 days must have passed since the last vaccine dose has been received OR
  • a single certificate that the person has recovered from covid-19 virus and has gotten one dose of vaccine. It is equated to a complete covid-19 vaccination series. OR
  • EU digital COVID certificate that proves the person has recovered from covid-19 within 6 months.
  • In addition to the aforementioned requirements, the person must present a negative covid-19 test result of less than 48 hours. The result of a PCR or an Antigen test is accepted.
