COVID-19 is a global pandemic which affects travel safety everywhere in the world.
Restrictions on entry at Finland’s external borders imposed due to the COVID-19 pandemic have ended.
As of 1 July, third-country travellers arriving in Finland are no longer required to hold vaccination or COVID-19 test certificates, and COVID-19 tests will not be carried out at border crossing points.

Covid-19 still among us
Covid-19 is still among us and the pandemic is not over even though Finland has given up restrictions on entry. Fast changes at the pandemic situation are possible.
It is very important to travel only when you are well and take care of good hand hygiene and the coughing etiquette. Those who want to wear a face mask are welcome to do so. Especially those who are at risk of contracting severe coronavirus disease, should be careful among large crowds.
Well tried hygiene practices are still followed at the Helsinki ship terminals.
