The Ministry of Europe and Foreign Affairs (MEAE) has updated its travel advice for Finland, whose access conditions remain very restrictive.
However, a relaxation of the current restrictions for group tourist stays only and not exceeding 72 hours or 3 days are currently being studied.
The MEAE specifies that these rules will not come into force before November 23 subject to the adoption of the bill by the Finnish Parliament.
“Likewise, the rules regarding quarantine and testing are subject to change after this date.” adds the Quai D’orsay.
A quarantine reduced to 3 days for a negative test on site
According to the government’s plan, stays, including tourist stays, will now be possible for people coming from countries with an incidence greater than 25 if the person can claim a negative test made 72 hours before departure.
At the arrival, quarantine can be reduced to three days if the person tests negative in Finland after 72 hours.
For travelers staying less than 72 hours no quarantine would be required. Finally, for people residing in Finland permanently, the quarantine could be lifted following a negative test taken in Finland after 72 hours from October 1.
