UEFA Women’s Euro in England – information for travelers

The UEFA European Women's Championship will take place in England 6 to 31 July 2022. On this page you can find useful competition regarding traveling to England for the cup.

Preparing for your trip

Consult the Finnish Foreign Ministry’s travel advice(layout.types.url.description) on Great Britain (in Finnish). The travel advice pages contain general country-specific information on safety and are intended to aid travelers’ own decision-making. Travelers are responsible for their own travel decisions.

We recommend that you complete a travel notification through the matkustusilmoitus.fi(layout.types.url.description) service. Registering your trip means that the Foreign Ministry can contact you in case of an emergency.

It is important and necessary to have travel insurance. Make sure that your insurance plan has sufficient cover.

Double check that your travel documents(layout.types.url.description) are in order. Finnish citizens may no longer travel to the UK with a national ID card. Instead, you must have a passport. The passport must be in date for the entire duration of your trip. Citizens of the European Union may visit the UK visa-free for a maximum of six months.

A minor traveling alone or with an adult who is not their guardian must have a letter from the child’s guardians giving authority for the child to travel and providing contact details. Find more information here(layout.types.url.description) and here(layout.types.url.description).

In case of emergency

The authorities of the country of destination are responsible for the safety of foreigners staying in their territory. As a traveler, you must follow and observe their instructions and orders. Follow local information sources, the webpages of the Embassy and the Foreign Ministry(layout.types.url.description) as well as the Embassy’s social media(layout.types.url.description).

To get emergency help, contact local emergency services. The official emergency telephone number in the UK is 999. You may also dial 112.

If you require emergency consular services, you can contact the Foreign Ministry’s 24/7 emergency helpline by dialing +358 9 1605 5555 or emailing [email protected] You can read more about the emergency help provided by missions on the Embassy website.

If your passport is stolen or goes missing, follow the guidance on our website. File a police report or notification of lost property at the local police station immediately and request your own copy of the report or investigation document. You need the police report as well as proof of your identity to apply for a new passport. Depending on the airline, it may be possible to board your return flight if you present the police report and an alternative ID, such as a driving license or a copy of your passport, but you must always negotiate special circumstances in advance and directly with the airline. If the airline requires a passport, the Embassy may issue a temporary passport during the Embassy’s usual hours of service.

In the first place, the Consular Section at the Embassy in London answers queries via email at [email protected] If your issue is extremely urgent, you may contact the Embassy by phone Monday to Friday between 9am and 12pm and between 1pm to 4pm by dialing +44 (0)20 7838 6200.

The street address of the Embassy is 38 Chesham Place, London SW1X 8HW, United Kingdom.
