Proof of vaccination and a negative COVID-19 test result is required for third country travelers entering Finland for non-essential purposes
Beginning December 21. 2021, travelers arriving from countries outside the European Union and Schengen Area for non-essential purposes will be required to present proof of a negative COVID-19 test taken less than 48 hours before arrival and provide proof of vaccination. If seven days have passed since the last dose was administered, the traveler qualifies as fully vaccinated.
What are the Changes?
Currently, travelers entering Finland for non-essential purposes from third countries are only required to present proof of vaccination. This new change will require these travelers to show proof of immunization and evidence of a negative COVID-19 test taken less than 48 hours before arrival.
The government is expected to release more updates in the coming days. Continue to check the government of Finland’s website for additional updates and information.
