Finland no longer requires fully vaccinated arrivals from the UK to provide a negative COVID test.

Unvaccinated holidaymakers from the UK remain barred, at least until 13 March, unless they have a certificate to prove they’ve recently recovered.

Children born from 2007 are allowed to travel to Finland if accompanied by a fully vaccinated adult. They don’t need to take a test.

In an update to its travel advice for Finland, the UK Foreign Office says arrivals must have been fully vaccinated for at least seven days prior to entry.

If their final vaccine was more than nine months ago, they must also have received a booster jab.

Those with proof they’ve recovered from COVID and have received at least one dose of a two-dose vaccine are also considered fully vaccinated by the Finnish.

Unvaccinated travellers who have a certificate to prove they’ve covered from COVID in the previous six months will also be allowed in, according to an update from Visit Finland on 14 February.

COVID pre-departure tests, introduced on 21 December in response to rising cases of the Omicron variant in the UK, are no longer required.
