Avoid non-essential travel.

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Foreign Ministry’s general travel advice is to avoid all but essential travel. However, all travel should be avoided to Brazil and South Africa, in accordance with the recommendation of the Finnish Institute for Health and Welfare (THL).

In addition, the Foreign Ministry recommends to avoid all travel to certain countries due to their general security situation or to leave such countries immediately. If you still decide to travel, always check before travelling the current coronavirus and entry restrictions from the authorities of the country of your destination. All persons returning from abroad must follow THL’s self-isolation guidelines.
