Travel instructions for each country are updated regularly based on the country’s incidence of coronavirus. You can check them here.

The result of the coronavirus test in your country of origin must be negative and no more than 72 hours old. The certificate should show your name and date of birth, the diagnostic method used in the test, the date and time of the test, and the laboratory, health authority or national authority that issued the certificate.

The time period is calculated starting from entry.

The same instructions currently apply to the entrants who have received a COVID-19 vaccination as those who have not. FINENTRY service provides you with personalised instructions on how to act.

If you have a certificate that shows you have previously been diagnosed with COVID-19, you do not need to get a coronavirus test or self-quarantine after you arrive in Finland. The certificate should show your name and date of birth, the place and date of issue, and the signature and stamp (or similar verification) of the issuing doctor. In this case, recovery from the COVID-19 disease must have taken place less than 6 months ago.

If the result of your coronavirus test in Finland is positive, a person from the infectious diseases unit of the city you are staying in will call you and give you instructions.

FINENTRY service is intended for travellers entering Finland, and you cannot get a separate coronavirus test certificate through a test that was booked using the service. Before travelling abroad, you can book an appointment at a private healthcare provider and ask for a coronavirus test certificate required for travelling.

In case the coronavirus test carried out by HUS or Kymsote, you can also download a negative coronavirus test certificate in English for free through Koronatietoni.fi service.
