Finland opens borders to vaccinated travellers from the UK

Finland eased its border restrictions on Monday (July 26), allowing travellers from the UK who have been fully vaccinated to enter with no additional quarantine or testing requirements.

Travellers must have had their complete vaccination course at least 14 days before arrival and show their status via the NHS app or letter.

Finland is currently on the UK government’s amber list, meaning fully vaccinated travellers can return from Finland without the need to quarantine.

Kristiina Hietasaari, director of Visit Finland, said: “We look forward to welcoming UK travellers back to explore our 188,000 lakes, the forest which covers more than 70% of our land and, of course, cities such as our capital Helsinki, renowned for its artistic and cultural offerings as well as its vibrant and innovative culinary scene.”

The tourist board is promoting the country as the “ideal post-pandemic destination” thanks to its adventure opportunities, space, privacy and the “great outdoors”.
