Entry to China is still very challenging. Starting from 7 November, China requires a negative Covid-19 test result as well as a negative anti-body test result to be certified in the Chinese Embassy before the trip. In case of travelling to China on a transit flight, the negative test results have to be obtained as well as certified in the Chinese Embassy of both the departure and the transit country.
The COVID-19 pandemic continues to influence the entry permit services of the Finnish diplomatic missions abroad. All missions are not able to provide these services in the same way and to the same extent as in normal circumstances before the pandemic. In this fall, the missions have been reopening their services as far as possible, and currently entry services are provided in most countries at least to a limited extent.
According to the Government decision made in September, restrictions on entry may be lifted for traffic between Finland and those EU and Schengen countries and the counties on the green list specified by the Council of the EU where the incidence of COVID-19 has not exceeded 25 new cases per 100,000 persons in the previous 14 days. The Government assesses the situation in different countries once a week. This news article will be updated with changes to the guidance and restrictions.
