May 14, 2020

As of 14 May 2020, the statutory restrictions on border traffic will be lifted in cross-border traffic across the Schengen internal borders by allowing employment or commission-related commuting. This means that citizens of the EU and Schengen States may travel to Finland for work.

Anybody entering Finland is required to spend 14 days in a self-imposed quarantine where they may work but must avoid contacts with other people outside work and home. For more information about quarantine guidelines

Employees and other people entering Finland for work may be requested to present documents such as work agreements to show that their travel is employment or commission-related commuting.

Citizens outside the EU and Schengen States are permitted to enter Finland if they are living in Finland, have a residence permit or travel for work that is considered essential and necessary.

According to the Border guard and current information, the restrictions for cross-border traffic continue until 14 June 2020.
