Finland extends Covid restrictions on border incl Russia until October 24

Finland has extended travel restrictions across the border, including with Russia, due to the coronavirus pandemic, until October 24, the country’s Cabinet of Ministers said.

“The epidemic of the infectious disease Covid-19 continues. Vaccination coverage achieved has not yet been assessed as adequate and the risk of health overload remains. Therefore, it is necessary to extend the decision from September 16 to October 24, ”the message says.

Entry into Finland is permitted for anyone vaccinated with vaccines approved by WHO or the European Medical Regulator. There are no Russian vaccines among them.

Finland also allows entry from countries where the level of coronavirus disease, according to Finnish experts, is minimal. The list of these countries is reviewed twice a month.
