Restrictions on entry will be reinstated for residents of Singapore in traffic arriving in Finland from Singapore.

The Government adopted a decision on the matter on 16 September and the decision will enter into force on 20 September.

No other changes will be introduced to the restrictions.

The existing restrictions on entry at external borders will be extended until 10 October, the Ministry of the Interior said in a statement.

However, people may still enter Finland from all countries upon presenting an approved certificate of a full course of vaccination.

Accepted travel reasons

External border traffic refers to traffic between Finland and non-Schengen third countries.

If a person arriving from a country subject to the restrictions is not fully vaccinated, the accepted reasons for entry are return travel to Finland, return travel to other EU or Schengen countries, transit on regular, scheduled flights at an airport or other essential travel.
