Travel and the coronavirus pandemic
Rapid changes in the COVID-19 epidemic situation are still possible. For this reason, THL recommends that all who travel abroad should be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 before travelling. It is important for tourists and tourism sector operators to be committed to complying with the measures in place to prevent COVID-19 infections.
In 2020, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment and the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health have drawn up guidelines for the safe reopening of domestic tourism in Finland. The guidelines will enter into force immediately. Tourism companies and tourists are responsible for adhering to the guidelines and for applying them to their activities.
Additionally, the Ministry of Economic Affairs and Employment together with representatives of the Ministry of Social Affairs and Health and the tourism company have compiled a set of national health, hygiene and security instructions for tourism companies and travellers.
