The Finnish government has extended its current COVID-19 entry rules until July.

Key Points:

  • Until at least June 30, travelers from outside the EU or Schengen Area can enter the country without having to test for COVID-19 if they have proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or have previously recovered from COVID-19 within the past six months.
  • Travelers who are not fully vaccinated against or have previously recovered from COVID-19 must have proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken within 72 hours before arrival and take a second COIVD-19 test within three to five days after arriving in Finland.
  • Finnish citizens, permanent residents of Finland and those who have essential reasons to enter the country will be exempt from the COIVD-19 border measures.
