Travel restriction amended for family members, definition of family broadened starting 7.6.2021
As of Monday, June 7, 2021, travel restriction for family members of Finnish citizens and residents of Finland will be amended. In recent months, only the closest relatives have been able to come to Finland, and, for example, the siblings of a foreigner living permanently in Finland have not been able to come to Finland.
Definition of family broadened for family reasons and imperative family reasons. The definition of family will be broadened for travel across internal and external borders. At internal borders, family means from now on spouse, children, grandchildren, parents, parents-in-law, grandparents, siblings, great-grandchildren, uncles, aunts and cousins, and family members of those listed above. At external borders, family means spouse, children, parents, parents-in-law and grandparents, and family members of those listed above.
Entry restrictions to Finland are currently valid until June 27, 2021. In addition, all travelers 13 years of age or older will be required to have a negative coronavirus test result or a medical certificate for covid-19 disease in the last six months upon arrival. Finnlines requires the same documents related to the coronavirus at check-in as other Finnish Shipping Companies.
