Travel restrictions are set to be lifted between Finland and several countries, including the popular destinations Germany, Greece and Italy. Passengers are required to check the entry and quarantine regulations of their country of destination before leaving for a trip.

Starting from July 13th, travel restrictions will be lifted for countries where the incidence of the coronavirus is at most eight new cases per 100,000 persons in the previous two weeks. This means that travellers arriving from these countries are not required to follow voluntary quarantine recommendations upon arrival to Finland, or pass through internal border controls.

The lifting of travel restrictions is also being considered for countries in which the number of coronavirus infections has substantially decreased and continues to decline.

The travel restrictions in effect in destination countries may vary, so passengers are required to check the entry and quarantine instructions before leaving for a trip.

  • Andorra (travel restrictions return AUG 10TH for arriving passengers)
  • Belgium (travel restrictions return AUG 10TH)
  • China

Travel restrictions were previously lifted on June 15th for the Baltic countries as well as Iceland, Norway and Denmark. Internal border controls have been lifted for these countries and there is no quarantine or self-isolation requirement for people arriving in Finland from these countries.

Finavia strongly recommends that passengers wear masks at airports, avoid physical contact and maintain a safe distance to other passengers whenever possible.

Passengers are urged to familiarise themselves with any travel restrictions in their destination country and Finavia’s checklist for passengers before embarking on their journey.
