Finland: Internal border control will continue until 25 July – changes to external border control as well

NordenBladet — The Government has decided to continue internal border control until 25 July to ensure the introduction of health security measures at borders. After this short transitional period, internal border control and entry restrictions at internal borders will be lifted. Internal border traffic refers to traffic between Finland and other Schengen countries. Changes will be made to external border control as well.

Internal border control will be restored for the period between 12 and 25 July to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus varieties in traffic between Finland and Belgium, Denmark, Estonia, France, Greece, Latvia, Liechtenstein, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, Norway, Portugal, Spain, and Sweden. However, leisure boating from these countries is still allowed.

Certificate of a negative COVID-19 test result or one dose of vaccine not enough to allow entry to the country
As announced by the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health on Tuesday 6 July, with respect to health security measures a certificate of a negative COVID-19 test prior to the entry or of the first dose of vaccine at least 14 days prior to the entry will be enough to allow a person to enter Finland. However, persons travelling to Finland should remember that, with respect to countries that continue to be subject to internal border control and entry restrictions, such a certificate will not be enough to allow entry during the transitional period 12-25 July.

Validity of the decision on external border traffic extended
The decision on external border traffic will be extended until 22 August 2021 to prevent the spread of COVID-19 virus varieties. External border traffic refers to traffic between Finland and non-Schengen third countries.
