Finland: Register for the FINENTRY service before arrival
Restrictions on entry have been lifted between Germany and Finland on 1 July 2021 and as from 26 July 2021 all passengers from Sweden can arrive unrestricted in Finland, too. Already now all fully-vaccinated persons do not need an essential reason to travel from Sweden to Finland.
However, all passengers should be prepared for a health examination at the port of arrival. No covid-19 certificates need to be presented at the check-in.
When arriving in Finland, all passengers born 2005 or earlier should have one of the following corona certificates:
- a negative covid-19 test certificate (max. 72 hours old upon arrival), or
- a certificate of covid-19 vaccination (at least 14 days from the first dose of vaccination), or
- a certificate of recovery from covid-19 disease (max. 6 months old upon arrival).
Certificates are checked by the health-care personnel at the port of arrival and if a person (born 2005 or earlier) does not have a valid certificate, a covid-19 test is mandatory. In addition, passengers should take a covid-19 test 3–5 days after the arrival, if they have not received a full series of covid-19 vaccinations at least 14 days before arrival or have not had a covid-19 disease in last 6 months.
