The government has decided to continue the internal border controls between Finland and the Schengen countries and the same restrictions decided on 28 December 2021 will apply to all travelers arriving from abroad to Finland until 31 January.
Exemptions for people who cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons
The decision on internal border control adopted at the end of December will be amended so that people who cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons may enter Finland if they have a medical certificate indicating this, along with a certificate of a negative COVID-19 test taken less than 48 hours prior to entry.
The decision on external border traffic will also be amended so that entry into Finland from non-Schengen EU countries would be permitted for people who cannot be vaccinated against COVID-19 for medical reasons if they hold the above-mentioned certificates. With regard to third countries, restrictions on entry will continue in line with the previous decision.
