Finland will open the border for tourists on June 30

Finland will lift coronavirus entry restrictions and open the border for tourists from third countries, including Russia, from June 30. This was reported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of Finland.

As such, tourists are no longer required to hold vaccination or coronavirus test certificates, nor are they required to take coronavirus tests at border crossings. “Health authorities have concluded that there are no longer any medical grounds for restrictions at the external borders,” the Foreign Ministry website says.

The ministry said in a statement that in connection with the lifting of restrictions, an increase in traffic from third countries, in particular, on the border with Russia, is expected: “The volume of traffic is also influenced by the desire of Russians to travel and the number of valid visas.”

Coronavirus entry restrictions to Finland were introduced in 2020 and have been extended for two years. Now only bus service operates between Russia and Finland.
