- Finland adjusted its advice for foreign nationals to apply for an A1 Certificate when traveling to the country for specific short-term purposes
The government of Finland adjusted its advice for foreign nationals to apply for an A1 Certificate when traveling to the country for short-term business purposes, conferences, or recreational trips.
Instead, the government noted that A1 certificates only need to be obtained when a country requires it or in cases when short-term work is being completed at a construction site or other location with a high occupational hazard rate.
The government also advised that in cases where it is later found that a certificate is needed, an A1 certificate can be applied retroactively.
What are the Changes?
The government of Finland updated its advice for obtaining an A1 certificate for short-term business travel. The government had previously advised that European Union and European Economic Area nationals acquire an A1 certificate for short-term business trips, regardless of the length of work or short postings abroad.
