From Friday 1 July, passengers will no longer be required to present certificates of COVID-19 vaccinations or recovery or be tested for COVID-19 when entering the country.
The end of health security measures related to the coronavirus applies to both Finland’s internal and external border control. The internal border refers to the border between Finland and the rest of the EU or Schengen countries and the external border refers to the border between Finland and non-EU or non-Schengen countries.
There are three healthcare providers in Rovaniemi that offer coronavirus testing for departure:
If you think you may have been infected with the coronavirus, take a self test. If the test is positive the traveller should avoid contact to others for at least five days.
If travellers want to go to official testing points while in Rovaniemi, they may get tested at their own cost. If the test is positive the traveller should avoid contact to others for at least five days. More guidelines from here. This means the responsibility of the traveller is now even bigger. It is on travellers own responsibility to avoid contacts and to organize for example extra accomodation if needed. In problematic cases the traveller is adviced to contact their own travel insurance company. In cases of severe illness, the traveller should contact the local emergency room: Tel. +358 (0)16 322 4800 / Emergency care at Lapland Central Hospital.
NATIONWIDE EMERGENCY NUMBER: 112
