Business travel during COVID-19: topical information about entry restrictions on the websites of Finnish missions abroad

To support people travelling on essential business during the coronavirus pandemic, Finnish missions abroad keep their websites updated on local travel restrictions. Rules and guidance in different countries can change rapidly, which is why the Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises people travelling on business to always check the official website of the country of destination, to consider whether the trip is essential, and to act responsibly.

One of the principal tasks of the Ministry for Foreign Affairs is to secure the operation of Finland’s foreign trade. It is important to help safeguard scope for action in foreign trade also during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Some business travel is essential also during the pandemic. Different countries’ advice relating to restrictions, entry requirements and necessary documents changes all the time. The Ministry for Foreign Affairs cannot influence decisions made by the authorities in another state.

Finnish missions abroad keep their websites updated on local COVID-19 news, travel restrictions and entry regulations. The news are available in the Current affairs section. To access the missions’ own websites, visit finlandabroad.fi (Opens New Window). If you are travelling, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs advises you to check the most recent entry regulations on the website of the authorities of the country of destination.
